A team of graduate business students at the University of Tennessee have studied ways the city can use Centennial Golf Course for more than just golf, and the students will present their recommendations on Tuesday. The meeting is open to the public.
The graduate students are from UT’s Master of Business Administration, or MBA, program. They will present their recommendations from a recent “Innovations in Practice” project to the City of Oak Ridge at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 25, in the Oak Ridge Municipal Building Courtroom.
There has been discussion of how to increase revenues at the golf course, including at Oak Ridge City Council meetings when the city has been asked to provide more money for the golf course.
A press release said the study of Centennial Golf Course took the group of four MBA students approximately seven weeks to complete.
“The collaboration was born from the city’s desire to expand activities, broaden participation, and increase non-golf revenue at the city-owned golf course,” the press release said.
The City of Oak Ridge has been working with the Haslam College of Business at UT for several years.
“The partnership helps the city assess key projects and needs within the community, while also helping students complete a core requirement for their master’s degree in business administration,” the press release said.
