Thank you for the phone calls and support over the last two days. For the previous three seasons, Vargo Golf has opened all 4 of the City of Detroit golf courses on time and we are dedicated to doing the same this year. The contractor recommended by the Contracting & Procurement Department (Purchasing Department) doesn’t meet the qualifications required to operate these golf courses per RFP #17LS1484 and the transparency of the selection process has been tainted and flawed. The only reason the golf courses won’t open is because of the stubbornness of the Contracting & Procurement Department. They have the power to renew Vargo Golf’s contract and get the golf courses open on time. Vargo Golf has everything in place to open these golf courses in an economic and timely manner (liquor licenses, websites, staff, etc.). For the league members, outing planners, and daily play golfers that want to voice their displeasure in the handling of this process, the phone calls and emails should be directed to the City of Detroit Office of Contracting & Procurement. Vargo Golf remains dedicated to the golfers of Detroit and all City departments.
