Their mere existence has drawn the ire of environmentalists, who object to the large amount of treated effluent it takes to irrigate the lush green landscapes in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. Others are against the city spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on the five courses every year in a region with 40 golf courses and declining participation.

This week, the Tucson City Council will begin the process of taking public input on other possible uses for Silverbell, El Rio and Fred Enke golf courses as well as the two 18-hole Randolph golf courses next to Reid Park.
