Up near me, most of the courses are on state park land. The parks department helps out by cutting grass if we ask them, or occasionally removing fallen trees, but we take the brunt of the work. Our club payed for all the baskets and teepads and put them all in, we pick up litter and empty the trash cans, we put wood chips out on the fairways, etc. The head park guy loves us and has told us on numerous occasions that he wished we worked for him instead of the maintenance guys that he has.
