While Riverside Golf Course in Victoria is closed, city officials are looking at ways to improve it and have it be profitable. To that end, they've hired a management company for advice.

Foresight Golf Management will be hired for a price of $45,000 to help the city make the course turn a profit. As it stands right now, the course is closed for improvements. The city has voted to spend up to $48,000 on equipment and maintenance. It's not cheap to run a course, either. Officials say it costs nearly $1 million a year to run a golf course.

Based on a time frame for management companies to bid on managing the golf course, the city may be running it until sometime in early 2018.
