Lincoln Parks and Recreation Director Lynn Johnson today announced a change in management at the Holmes Golf Course Clubhouse. The Department and Scott Weihe have mutually agreed to end Weihe's management contract. Denis Vontz, the contracted Golf Professional at the Highlands Golf Course, will take over management of the Holmes Golf Course Clubhouse on an interim basis. Johnson said no disruption in service is expected.
Johnson said the City recently learned that Weihe was not handling funds in a manner consistent with the terms of the contract. Johnson said there is no indication at this point that City funds are missing, but the City has retained an independent auditor to examine the Holmes Golf Course Clubhouse records. City Finance Director Steve Hubka said that when contracts with independent contractors end in this manner, good business practices require such an audit.
