Heritage Oaks golf course has fallen $325,000 short in revenue this year and the city has to make up the costs.
Mayor Joe Fitzgerald is concerned because some of that money had to come from the rainy day fund, which is strictly for emergencies.
"Bad luck is the best explanation right now. Too much rain, too much snow, too much dry weather last year and again...when the weather improves and the rounds pick up we can relax, we can't relax yet," said Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald wants council to revisit the golf courses financial situation in the fall to see where it stands and to try to come up with a plan on how to pay for its losses.
