Lawmakers Okay Sale Of Alcohol At Peninsula State Park Golf Course

 

State lawmakers have approved a bill that would allow the sale of alcohol at Peninsula State Park Golf Course.

Current DNR administrative rules prohibit the sale of alcohol at the course. Rep. Garey Bies (R-Sister Bay), a co-sponsor of the measure, says removing the ban "levels the playing field" so the organization responsible for maintaining the course, the Peninsula Golf Association (PGA), can compete with courses in the area that sell alcohol.

The DNR has leased the land to the PGA since 1982. Since then, the PGA has been financially responsible for all necessary improvements, including a new irrigation system and upgrades to the clubhouse. No state tax dollars are allocated to the PGA for daily operations and maintenance.

Both Granite Peak Ski Area at Rib Mountain State Park and Devils Lake State Park have concessions --  including alcohol service -- which are run by non-profits based on agreements with the DNR.

Bies says the bill was passed unanimously by both houses of the Legislature and now heads to the Governor's desk for approval.
