The City Council followed the lead of other communities around the state and approved a nonresident rate for city-owned Spanish Oaks Golf Course at Tuesday's City Council meeting.

Nonresidents will pay $1 more per nine holes than residents, City manager Dave Oyler said. That will boost nine holes of golf to $11 and 18 holes to $22 for nonresidents. Season passes will also reflect the nonresident rate. The council reviews the rates annually in December for folks who want to give the gift of golf at Christmas, Oyler said.
