Everett Golf Courses Switching To Dynamic Pricing

January 19, 2019

Everett Government


Since 2014 the future of Everett’s two city-owned golf courses has been the subject of much discussion.

Earlier this month the Everett City Council held a retreat. One topic was whether the City should be in the golf business at all. From the discussions at least one of the two city-owned golf courses could face major change or elimination. Council members say they want to study the issue further. Meantime it looks like changes may soon be coming to the cost of playing golf in Everett, Washington.

Don’t mind playing in the rain? It will cost less. Looking or a sunny Sunday in the summer? It will cost more. That looks to be the thought behind a new pricing plan at Everett’s two public golf courses. Here’s more the city’s Parks Department.

Starting, March 1, 2019, the City of Everett and Premier are proposing new golf rates and the implementation of dynamic pricing at Legion Memorial and Walter Hall Golf Courses. Similar to airline pricing, dynamic pricing allows for savings when making early reservations and adjusts based on demand: a decrease in rates when the demand for golf is low and an increase in rates when the demand is high. There will be three public forums offered to learn more:

Public meetings on proposed golf rates and dynamic pricing:

  • Tuesday, Jan. 22, 5 p.m. at Walter Hall Golf Course
  • Thursday, Jan. 24, 11 a.m. at Legion Memorial Golf Course
  • Tuesday, Feb. 12, 6 p.m. at Spruce Hall at Forest Park

To learn more about the what dynamic pricing is and how it works, please attend one of our public forums, visit www.everettgolf.com or direct your questions to Kimberly Shelton, kshelton@everettwa.gov.
