Ottawa mayor Jim Watson is calling for the city's continued investment in golf courses despite a report of major mismanagement at the Pine View golf course.

The poor management was detailed in a report released by Auditor-General Alain Lalonde Wednesday. It found the golf course was badly mismanaged and failed several financial checks and balances.

CTV News was the first to release the report weeks ago.

Some findings included falsified receipts, the purchase of Senators tickets, and managers awarding themselves shares of annual tips collected.
