From The Real Deal: An investigation by USA Today Network-Florida also shows that county-owned and city-owned golf courses across the state got $64.9 million of public subsidies from 2013 through 2017.

More subsidies for municipal golf courses are under consideration in many areas of the state.

Martin County, for example, is considering whether to spend $12.3 million to redesign its golf course and build a clubhouse there, even though the Martin County Golf Course has lost about $6.6 million since 2015.

Kevin Abbate, Martin County’s director of parks and recreation, said the spending plan is justified because the golf course is among 34 in the county that compete for players.
