They have a higher green fees for non Henrico residents. As someone who is not a Henrico resident I can’t really argue since they use their tax revenue to subsidize the course.Charge for what? Hotels? Attending events at the arena?
Also, it doesn't look like that the Belmont financial model is optimal
Henrico County will continue operating the Belmont Golf Course through June 2020, but a proposed resolution to keep the golf course open beyond then cannot be adopted legally, county officialswww.richmond.com
I am not sure you can criticize the Belmont municipal golf course financial model and be pro new arena. Per your link, Belmont was supposed to be paid for by users but the course only made a profit once since 2000 ($5,429 in 2008.). That leaves the county to subsidize what is intended to be a self-sustaining operation.
