• Can a golf pro run a restaurant?

    The Jan. 12 City Council meeting may have been a precursor to future meetings when they will undertake the question of changes to the use permit at the Pt. Pinos Grill at the golf course. The pro currently has the reins at the restaurant, but he is not a profession restaurateur.  And he’s only doing it until a more permanent contractor is found.

    That may take a while.

    City Manager Tom Frutchey says they will discuss adding lights to the parking lot and extending hours (which can’t be done without the lights) plus serving alcoholic beverages beyond beer and wine.

    Some property owners and other residents are against the idea, saying that it will spoil the natural beauty of the area and encourage rowdy behavior. There was a public comment period, but the results are not yet available to the public which did the commenting.

    The actual profitability of the restaurant hangs on the liquor license, according to others. The city has been feeding it for years.

    Stay tuned.
