There was an item about this on the BBC regional news saying that if they did get another bail-out, they might be concentrating on golf in future.

That's a shame but understandable from the stresses of covid and the allegations of previous mismanagement. Unfortunately this type of expenditure creates costs for councils but any benefits are dispersed and hard to measure. I hope someone comes in to save the TdY assuming it is feasible in 2021.
