Golfers can expect to pay more on 18-hole courses in L.A. County after the Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to raise green fees.

The L.A. County plan affects golf courses in Arcadia, Diamond Bar, La Mirada, La Verne, Pomona and Rosemead.

No fee increase is planned at nine-hole courses like Altadena and Eaton Canyon.  L.A. County greens fees were last revised in May 2015.

Since then “operating expenses, including wages and product and water costs have increased by an average of 10 percent,” a staff report submitted to the board notes.

The plan calls for seniors playing during the week to pay an additional 50 cents per round. All others would pay $1 more per weekday round. Weekend fees would increase by $1.50 across the board. Tournaments will also see fee increases of between $3 and $3.50 per golfer.

County officials expect the fee increase would raise $344,000.
