Here's an article in the Houston Press, the alternative newsweekly in H-Town, about a brouhaha at Houston Community College involving golf.
The ruckus is over a 3-hole, par-3 golf course that the community college system built, with taxpayer money, at its Northeast College campus. What's the problem? The problem is that HCC has been bemoaning a fiscal crisis and laying off staff members at the same time it's been building these three golf holes.
The purpose of the golf construction is to be able to make golf instruction available at the Northeast Campus, whose mission is supposed to be "workforce education." The cost of the golf instruction will be $50 an hour.
