 I am not a member of ANGC so I do not know definitely but IMHO they do not care about the "money". They are doing just fine with the revenues from the Masters. "As Golf Digest reported, the Masters will take in about $115 million in revenue this year and turn a profit of $29 million. Here’s the revenue breakdown: merchandise ($47.5 million); tickets ($34.75 million); international TV rights ($25 million); concessions ($7.75 million). Noticeably absent: domestic television...
 Amen. How many complaints are there for all these fireman's calendars.
 I recognize that this is a public forum and I have resisted posting "tacky and crude" comments on here but I will not criticize anyone else who does post such comments because I know I have made similar comments in a private setting. This is "holier than thou" ......... the response which I italicized below.   You guys kind of suck.  I can understand some of the arguments against having a women's Masters at Augusta; many of the ones posted here have a lot of truth in...
 I love it. My wife would not be surprised at any of the comments on here. I am proud to be an anti PC person. I just wonder how the holier than thou PC crowd here behave in their regular foursomes. If it is anything like my foursome everything discussed here is tame. Back on topic. IMHO there is no way Augusta will ever have a Womens' Masters. I am actually surprised that they have women members. Frankly I just loved their response when Martha Burke and her non sense...
Definitely know spring is here as they have started to hand rake the bunkers again. Very nice.       Pretty nice this morning.  
 So are you saying it is not OK to have a bet going on a round of golf?????? If so WOW !! Every weekend we have a bet going in our group. In fact a lot of time there are too many bets going and it takes us most of lunch to figure out who won what. You know points for sand saves, birdies, chip ins etc etc. When my son was 7 or 8 and just taking up golf I would always bet him a chocolate bar or pop from the cart girl if he two putted or something. Off topic but there is...
 My club is certainly not an exclusive club. I am like you and I don't do the social stuff. I mean I will have lunch and dinner with the regular foursome but that is about it. I am there to golf only and yes they are some rich business owners but the vast majority are hard working professionals. You will find Bentley's and Ferrari's in the parking lot but you will also find Honda's, Toyota's etc too. 
 Wow I am surprised. Vancouver is a very expensive city. Land values are crazy here. This is mostly because we have become a favorite city for various business owners and/or political officials from China to launder (no bad word), hide (nope bad again), funnel (again not good) ...... invest (yeah that's the word) their ill gotten funds. I mean the "official" rule in China is that you can only take out of the country US$50,000 in one year. Yet purchases of middle of the...
 How is that a private club? At my club - - one time initiation fee $50k- monthly dues around $450- quarterly food minimum $220- unlimited golf - no other costs for each round
 As I mentioned there is a wait list for intermediate memberships (22 to 35) also. They get a lot better deal cause I believe their initiation is 50% of the regular initiation fees. We have a lot of professionals who are members. I always thought that Canadian professional made a LOT less than American professionals. On average  - MD (non specialist) - $200k to $300kMD (specialists) - $500k to $650kDentist - $250k to $700kLawyers - $200k to $450kAccountants - $200k to...
