I donít think people complaining about golf courses realize that the municipal ones fund/maintain their other city parks thatís they like to use for free.

As it being only for the rich, I can play Torrey Pines, a city owned PGA tour course, along the coast in San Diego for $42. Balboa Park, just a couple of miles from downtown is $32 for the 18 hole course, and only $14 for the 9 hole executive course.

Whether you play golf or not, wouldnít you rather drive/train/walk/bike by a golf course than a commercial center or housing developments? A great 27 hole course, Riverwalk, in Mission Valley, San Diego, is being replaced by more condos, shopping, office space, and tons of traffic thatíll come with it. We could use more urban golf courses to curb development and maintain open green space, unfortunately the opposite seems to be happening.

I don't think of the Bronx golf courses as particularly urban, but Chicago Parks District has some really urban courses.
