Charlottesville wants to outsource maintenance at its municipal golf course.
 
The city closed a request for proposals for maintenance services at Meadowcreek Golf Course last week.
 
The 18-hole golf course has drained city funds over the past few years.
 
Although revenue has remained relatively consistent over the past few years, the city has transferred money from its general fund to subsidize the course and cover shortfalls as usage has declined and expenses have increased.
