After reading "For Some Golfers It's Worse Than a Bogey: Privatization" (April 11), I wonder why many of my fellow golfers are against testing the private management of one proposed city-owned facility. Under private management, the playing conditions at most of the county's courses were greatly improved and the increase in fees was less than what it costs to play on other public courses in California.
Let the city try what has been working for the county. If it proves to be successful, it means better golfing for everyone.

Hurrah for the slender-horned spineflower, the phacelia, the wooly blue curls, the tidytips, and all the other native wildflowers of Southern California (April 15). We pray that there will never be a golf course in Big Tujunga Wash.
