REDMOND, OR -- The Redmond City Council has approved a 5-and-a-half year contract extension with CourseCo, which operates Juniper Golf Course. Mayor George Endicott says the company will make $100,000 of improvements at Juniper. He says the city also met with a consultant to discuss adding an event center at the course. Endicott says golf isn’t as popular around the nation as it once was. He says golf courses are adding new attractions to try to generate more revenue.
