Standard-Examiner: Mt. Ogden Golf Course Has Much to Offer

A Weber County Forum Tip O' the Hat to two Emerald City locals who are doing Boss Godfrey's job for him

Upbeat Jim Burton story in this morning's Standard-Examiner sports section, reporting on recent improvements at our often-maligned Mount Ogden Golf Course (MOGC):
Mt. Ogden golf course now more forgiving
The above story follows closely on the heels of this SE 7/26/10 Letter to the Editor, written by MOGC employee Deanna Aquilar, who also strongly touts the course and its associated amenities:
Mt. Ogden Golf Course has much to offer
We'll note in passing that its great to see individuals from our community praising our "crown jewel" golf course, in which connection we'd like to challenge our Emerald City Administration to follow suit, and launch its own public information campaign promoting the Mt. Ogden Golf Course. An administration-authorized Standard-Examiner guest editorial from golf pro Todd Brenkman would be nice, as would be something upbeat from Boss Godfrey himself. Promoting city attractions is supposed to be Boss Godfrey's job, isn't it?

Do we expect the Godfrey Administration to affirmatively act on this? Taking Godfrey's recent history into account, we won't hold our breath.

So in the meantime we'll express our appreciation to Mr. Burton and Ms. Aguilar for doing Boss Godfrey's job for him.

A Weber County Forum Tip O' the Hat to each of them.

Don't kid yourself Rudi, my idealistic friend. Godfrey's "job" is:

1) selling Ogden properties like Mt. Ogden Golf course to his greedy real estate friends so they can build McMansions, hotels and Condos;

2) Initiating serial bonding projects to provide multi-million dollar income for his contractor/donor "friends."

I loves ya Rudi; but you're way to idealistic and naive.

Truth of the matter, credit should be given to where credit is due. Ogden City's Street Superintendant is the man that made this happen. Everyone knows it, yet few give this talented man any kudos because Lowder, Patterson and Godfrey claim the fame. Mr. Bingham has made MOGC more playable and enjoyable no matter how much Mattie cooks the numbers.
