Significant Changes

The Adopted Budget for Fiscal Year 2022/23 of $8,778,630 reflects an increase of $343,970 from the Fiscal Year 2021/22 Adopted Budget. Major changes includethe following:

  • Increase in contracted labor by $188,090
  • Increase in miscellaneous items by $36,940


Rounds of golf played dropped off slightly from the pandemic high in FY 2021/22, but still finished extremely strong with 251,938 rounds. The last three fiscal years have had the highest rounds played since OB Sports took over in 2014 with 251,938 last year, 257,597 the previous year and 231,185 the year before that. Silverbell and El Rio had very good years, with a reduction in rounds played less than 1%.


Golf replaced one of the refreshment carts at Randolph to help keep up with demand and improve customer service. Air conditioning units were replaced at Silverbell in the pro shop and at Randolph in the restaurant and conference room.

Future Objectives

Tucson City Golf continues to make improvements at courses focused on customer satisfaction and improving profitability. Planning has started to replace the irrigation system on Randolph North (Parks and Connections bond) in the next year and will also focus on reducing the amount of irrigated turf. This will help improve water efficiency and mitigate raising water costs. The restaurant improvements are intended to attract the non-golfing community to the courses and increase non-golf related revenues.
