Proposed Plan for Bryan Golf Changes is Out, Mayor Says

A little more than a week ago, News 3 first told you about a proposed plan that would give golfers municipal rates at the Phillips Event Center on Briarcrest Drive, this as the city explores changes to its muni golf course.

Now, that plan is apparently dead.

Mayor Jason Bienski says it's because so many Bryan golfers sounded off against the idea, so there isn't a reason to keep discussing it with Wallace Phillips and his event center staff.

Under the proposal, the city would have paid Phillips $50,000-a-year for 20 years in order to get rates down to muni levels, but at recent meetings, golfers overwhelming said they didn't want to play golf at the Phillips Event Center.

Bienski has floated the idea of changing the Municipal Golf Course into a super park with fields for multiple sports. That will be discussed at a council meeting later this month.

There is one part of the plan that's still alive. The mayor said he'd still like to explore putting a city senior center at the Phillips Event Center.
