Wild Wings residents agree to tax, bring in KemperSports

The residents of Wild Wings, a golf course community near Sacramento, Calif., earlier this month voted to tax themselves to allow their 9-hole course to reopen. At the same time, KemperSports was hired to manage the facility when it does resume operations.
The company that owned the 9-hole facility opened in 2005, Brandenburg Properties of San Jose, had closed the course in December, claiming it was losing too much money.
Residents concerned about property values, however, voted to assess themselves up to $1,700 per household and to work with Yolo County officials to take over the course. About one in 10 homes are currently in foreclosure in the community and others are for sale at half their original $500,000 to $1 million price tag.
Yolo County officials said KemperSports will supervise the reopening of the public course.
