Lakeshore Municipal is unfair to other golf courses

Why is the city of Oshkosh in the golf business? There is no shortage of golfing opportunities in the area. In fact, most golf courses are struggling to survive as the number of golfers locally and nationwide stagnates or decreases. It's hard enough for a privately-owned golf course to survive today but now factor in that Lakeshore enjoys a huge unfair advantage over other area courses because they don't have to pay property tax.

It enjoys some of the region's most valuable land yet doesn't pay a dime in property taxes.
