No, not at all. I just like to talk about country clubs A) because I grew up on one and B) I just think they get a bad rap sometimes and I like to provide opinion and share real life thoughts, stories, questions, ideas about them.
I was at the country club of Orlando today and I saw something I would like to share.
We have a magnificent terrace outside our dining room. It faces the the back nine with probably 6 holes in view making it a hotspot of the club. There were some wives eating on the terrace with there kids. There husbands were on some of the holes seen from the terrace. The restaurant staff noticing the kids eagerness took some carts and brought them out to be with there fathers while...
I just went down to play Lexington country club in Fort Myers.
The course is completely green. Unbelievable considering they did 63,000 rounds last year. Amenities are nice. Typical friendly middle of the road country club in south florida. Check it out
Also to be included in your questions should be: How many people are on your resignation list?How long is it taking them to get out or off it?What is the financial stability of the club?How many rounds a golf to you do a day/week?Do you offer bundled memberships?Can you walk a round?what are tee time policies and preferences? there are others, I just wanted to add to your list.
hello fellow floridian. I played in fortmyers for 8 years and the thunderstorms were always a gamble. Some coureses tried to be slick with the rain checks but for the most part you could get covered for the rain. They would ask you what hole you made it too and compensate based on that
semi-private are nice too I must say. You can still join mens leagues you can still reciprocate, you can still receive somewhat private style call privileges. And best of all your dudes can stay low because you have so much public play to help the money come in.
I might be a little biased since I live in south florida. down here we play 365 days. I guess the price of these clubs down here reflect the playability of the courses. You have to admit it sounds nice to play whenever you want. That also keeps the traffic down on public/semi private courses. Many people come down here seasonally (money is necessary) for our winter while enjoying there summer when they return. That also could be an option, there are many great...
That is a perfect example of a gem. They are all over the place. It would be nice if you could share your golfing news on my forum (country club talk) so others can understand where the good things are. The idea is to share personal stories about your love for golf and your home course
