Pacific Grove, Calif. could look for management company

The city of Pacific Grove, California is thinking about turning over its highly desirable golf property to the private sector.

Pacific Grove Golf Links, an 81-year-old layout co-designed by Jack Neville and Chandler Egan, would surely generate interest among the nation’s management companies, for many people consider it to be “the poor man’s Pebble Beach.” Financially speaking, the course has been neither a boon nor a bane – “It’s roughly breaking even,” Mayor Bill Kampe told the Monterey Herald – but the city wonders whether professionals might improve its bottom line. Besides, it’ll soon need upgrades that the city can’t afford to pay for, including a conversion to reclaimed water.

City officials plan to discuss their options next week.
