CINCINNATI (AP) - A southwest Ohio city’s golf courses and their amenities will get upgrades thanks to a court-ordered property tax refund.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1PLV1MZ ) municipal golf courses in Cincinnati will get back more than $2.8 million in property taxes thanks to a May 2015 Ohio Supreme Court decision.

In the ruling, the high court unanimously backed the Ohio Board of Tax Appeals’ reversal of State Tax Commissioner Joseph Testa’s decision to deny property tax exemptions for the city’s six public golf courses.

Officials say the funding will help pay for renovations to cart paths, parking lots and irrigation systems at the courses.

Steve Pacella, Cincinnati’s interim director of recreation, says the recreation commission will also ask to spend a portion of the money on maintenance equipment.
