Letter: It’s high noon for the golf course Letter: It’s high noon for the golf course To the editor:

Apparently sometime in the next couple of weeks City Council will finally vote on whether to accept the proposal by Ron Jaworski Management to take over operations at golf course on a long-term lease. Why the city of Brigantine would not be thrilled to have a high-profile, successful golf course ownership group like Ron Jaworski Management as part of the community is absolutely beyond me, but my understanding is that the new majority and their supporters are against the proposal and it will probably be voted down.
