After reading Wilson Gee’s impassioned letter (“An apology and the future of Ahwatukee Lakes,” May 21) in the AFN, I just could not pass it by without more comment. But my comments are about the Ahwatukee Golf Course, not the Lakes course. I can see this course heading the same way as the Lakes course. I enjoy eating at the Ahwatukee course clubhouse; the food is reasonably good and fairly priced. But the status of the clubhouse with its dirty carpeting, dirty Venetian blinds, cracked stucco, filthy/unsanitary restrooms, dead trees and brown fairways (because many irrigation sprinklers are not working) makes me believe Mr. Gee is letting this course go in the same direction as the Lakes course.

I live on one fairway, for which I had to pay a premium when I purchased my home 24 years ago. Now when they mow the little grass that is green, the mowers stir up dust that covers my patio furniture on a weekly basis if they even mow that often. This was an attractive course at one time and it can be an attractive course again with proper management. Mr. Gee needs to take a look at the Whirlwind Course on the Gila River reservation to see what a golf course should look like.
