Title
Authorize City Manager to Execute a Cooperative Agreement for Services with City of Santa Clara to Provide Golf Programs and Services
Report
BACKGROUND
The City owns and operates two golf facilities, Sunnyvale Golf Course featuring an 18-hole course, pro-shop and full service food concession, and Sunken Gardens Golf Course that features a nine-hole executive course with an 18-stall driving range and full service food concession. The City of Santa Clara owns the Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club (SCG&TC) which provides an 18-hole course and multiple tennis courts. Santa Clara will be closing SCG&TC in October 2019 to begin construction of a mixed-use development. A reduction in SCG&TC services to the public will begin on or about October 1, 2019, and golf and tennis operations cease on or about October 15, 2019.

Santa Clara is requesting an exclusive relationship with the City to provide golf services to Santa Clara residents at Sunnyvale resident rates at Sunnyvale Golf Course and Sunken Gardens Golf Course. Santa Clara golf patrons will benefit from Sunnyvale resident rates which offer savings over the non-residential rates. Patrons would include Santa Clara's residents and resident SCG&TC clubs (seniors, men's, women's, juniors), high school teams, annual tournaments, and instructional and junior players. Sunnyvale would receive SCG&TC databases for outreach to include opportunities for lessons revenue, inclusion in the City of Santa Clara activity guide, marketing and direct customer referrals.
