Cost of Golf Course Approaching $30 Million

November 10, 2001

Lew F. Galbraith Golf Course has become one of the most expensive public golf course-related projects in Bay Area history.

Total costs are fast approaching $30 million, of which nearly $20 million comes from public funds. And the project is not scheduled to be finished until next year or 2003.

This week, the Oakland Port Commission approved the last official permit to rebuild Galbraith, which will be renamed Metropolitan Golf Links.

The latest costs at Galbraith stem from unexpected complications associated with building on top of an old landfill.
