Golf course beer sales could rebound after governor signs revisions into law
Parks Director Doug Kupper says Oklahoma City golf courses have seen a drop in beer sales since new regulations on serving alcohol took effect last year.
A quirk in the law essentially killed the city's ability to sell beer at the clubhouse for consumption on the course.
Gov. Kevin Stitt signed legislation last week to restore beer sales for drinking on the links.
Kupper says beer sales comprise a significant part of concessions revenue at the five municipal golf courses.
Beer is served at the Earlywine, Lake Hefner, Trosper and Lincoln Park courses but not at James Stewart, according to sales records released by the city.
Beer sales at the municipal golf courses brought in $342,829 in fiscal 2017 and $340,382 in fiscal 2018.
So far this year, sales are $176,232, a 33 percent reduction in average monthly receipts.
