As you might expect, some folks aren't happy with this news

Taxpayers start subsidizing golf courses. (Janesville Gazette, 1/23/2012)

Excerpt: For the first time since the mid-1980s, Janesville taxpayers are subsidizing the city's two golf courses. In 2011, the subsidy was about $115,000. 

That doesn't include $200,000 that the city borrowed for capital expenses. 

In 2012, taxpayers will contribute about $1.60 for every golfer who tees off at Riverside or Blackhawk, the city's two public courses.
