Course posts strong revenue numbers in recent reports

HARLINGEN — The month of February was a very good one for golf, and by extension, local golf courses.

The mild winter weather was a financial boon for Tony Butler Golf Course, the municipal course for the city of Harlingen. For the first time in 26 months, the facility hit its seven-year average for revenue, course officials said this week.

The golf facility posted $123,000 in revenue for February, which followed a strong January financially, said Eddie Medlin, director of golf, who man-ages the course.

“We beat last year’s numbers, when we did a little over $109,000,” Medlin said. “This Febru-ary we’re at $123,000, so we had a pretty solid month. There’s only one year in the past seven that we’ve had a better February.”
