About Save Mulligans

Dear Save Mulligans Supporters,

The Board of Save Mulligans has vetted candidates for South Jordan City Council.

All candidates were given the opportunity to complete a questionnaire.  Chuck Newton, Joe Ross and Keila Mower did not respond to the questionnaire, so they were not offered an interview.  Andrew Peterson did not respond to the offer for an interview, but all other candidates were interviewed by the Board of Save Mulligans.

All candidates who were interviewed wanted more open interaction and honest communication between the City Council and South Jordan Residents.

Patrick Harris is the recommended candidate in District 1 and Brad Marlor is the recommended candidate in District 2.  No recommendation was made in District 4.  Patrick’s and Brad’s views on Mulligans most strongly align with Save Mulligans’ goal to Keep Mulligans as Mulligans. Potential endorsements of candidates will occur after the primary election. 

We encourage all citizens to be informed voters and exercise your right to vote during the upcoming primary election, which will be conducted by mail.  Watch for your ballot around the second week of July.

Thank you for your continued support!

    As I wouldn’t be opposed in re-designing Mulligans. It needs to stay a golf course. I keep hearing that city’s need to stay out of business, but most golf courses are city owned golf courses.

    1. Save Mulligans /

      Agreed, Brook. Cities took over golf courses because they made lots of money and so did Mulligan’s. Audited city reports to the state have shown Mulligan’s has paid for itself over the last 10 years of city ownership. If the city is to stay out of the sports business then let’s not have the rec center, the ice skating rink, the new splash pad or any of the baseball or soccer fields as they do not pay for themselves at all. That line of reasoning about the city not being in the sports business just doesn’t make sense.

    In our letter from the Mayor, he suggested a new park that is open to all on half of the land. I realize he is newly elected and this was in the makes before he took office. However, seriously we residents are not stupid. KEEP MULLIGANS and put a pool at the park by the rec center, it they feel we need another pool. There is far foo much traffic on 10600 now without adding more venues. If we don’t pay attention the same will happen to us as with the residents of Sandy and Draper who did not get out to vote against a school district split and now are seeing their huge increases in taxes. We cannot allow these few people to decide everything that happens in our city as they continue to spend our tax money frivolously on unnecessary surveys. They just did the same thing with their crazy idea of interfering with the school district. Lets vote this City Council out ASAP we obviously can’t afford to keep this bunch. The money we would save should keep Mulligan’s running for a very long time.

      If the city develops part of Mulligan’s it will be an open door to developing the rest of it. Plus, as you say, the added traffic will trigger the need for widening 106th – all at tax payer expense. Next November should be an eye opener.

    I don’t want to see it developed for the mere fact of TRAFFIC!!! No more TRAFFIC on 104th!! Puullleeeaasseee!!! I’ve never been to Mulligans HOWEVER I can not tell you how nice it is to see some green space with all the concrete going up!! I see plenty of empty buildings in So Jo. Get those filled before making more! Green space is nice and HARD TO FIND! You say it is worth a cool $50M now…was $20M years ago…hold onto it. Sounds like it’s an investment! (btw $50M isn’t that much when you are building parks that are $6M 😉 This is the exact situation that you would look back and say “We shouldn’t of sold it”….TOO many cities have done that!! Let’s just consider this to be our “Central Park”!! Listen to the people, South Jordan!! Save Mulligans! Ü

    Please leave Mulligans as it is. We have gone there as a family for years. We need to preserve the space. Families need good wholesome activities and areas to go. This helps keep kids out of trouble. Give kids something positive to do and keeps them active. Let’s maintain Mulligans as it is today.

    South Jordan needs Mulligans! I currently live in Vail, CO and I grew up a mile away. This was my favorite spot! I was just telling my friends about how the city wants to develop this and when they looked at the price, their mouth was wide open. It’s cheap! It’s great! If they need more revenue, people will gladly pay a buck more so they can enjoy being outside and have something to do. I can’t believe the city is passing up Mr. Blair’s offer to improve Mulligans with more money! Where are kids going to go at night? There’s a higher chance for kids to get into trouble causing more money from our taxes to pay for them to stay out of trouble rather than give them a place to go.

    Ever since I moved away from home, which was about 6 years ago, there is a new development whenever I come back to visit. This disgusts me. South Jordan used to have a lot of open space. Now I can’t wait to go back to my home in Vail, CO which hasn’t changed a too much in 40 years. No 5-story buildings and plenty of open space because the people care about preservation and so do the city council members! People move to and live in Utah because they enjoy the outdoors. Apparently the city doesn’t understand this.

    As far as we know the council has not indicted any needs for new schools to the Jordan SchoolDistrict. The city council does not have any jurisdiction over schools. As for parks; any plans we have seen only leave ‘token’ parks – very small with no recreational use.

    Thank you for all of your supportive comments. We are making a difference!
    A state audit of Mulligan’ new numbers has been requested, a condensed version of the slide presentation has been posted on this site, a PayPal button has been added to accept donations, we are in the Country Fest Parade and will also have a booth.. selling lemonade! Only 60 shirts and 50 signs are left and we are also planning a golf tournament to raise awareness and funds!
    Because of all of you we are truly changing the way this will turn out.
