Is it making money? Are they still paying for unneeded GPS?

This Golf Course COULD be profitable, but if it is not, Lamar needs to get a professional golf person that can get this thing to be Profitable. First thing, get rid of the GPS, total waste of Tax Dollars.

I know golf, and just about all real golfers I know have their own GPS pocket unit or use their cell phone app. for GPS, why does Butternut Need to spend 60K Dollars a year on this?

Kickbacks come handy, Most golfers do not have handhelp GPS. a few do, only the ones who play daily. Will give a report after I finish today, will have to play through crouds.

I figured out Bears Way problem!

Been hit in the head with two many golf balls by golfers not using a GPS.

I guess we would be defending the GPS's too!

Please watch out for flying balls Bears Way, we will be looking forward to your update. Give Lamar our regards.

My update.....Great day, a little warm. First nine played with a 91 year old retired Doctor. Sixty one year Blairsville resident. Loves the new Clubhouse and Grill. Then back nine we played with a couple, also residents, celebrating his eightieth birthday. They also loved the changes to the course. I told them that I am the hated one here because I defend Butternut. They all three said poo poo on that. So I say PooPoo also. That is my report.

Good report!!! Too many people here only hear the negatives.

We need to remember that the majority of the Union County population never reads the comments on this forum.

How did you shoot Bears way???

I shot 87, my brother n law from Iowa shot 92. The 91 year old Doc shot 44 on from nine. Amazing for his age. The 80 year birthday boy shot 50 on back nine, his wife beat him by two strokes. She loves the GPS as well as the 91 year old Doc. He doesn't need to see far.

I have a great idea for you Bears Way. Let the good citizens of Union County sell the Golf Course and Community Center to you. You seem to love it so much and I'm sure you cold manage it and make a real fortune with it. Now we have no desire to finance but United Community would love a great loan like that. You need to move fast though as the offer to sell won't be available indefinately.

Not so fast there Sir. Many community owned golf courses have been a money producer for that community. Don't throw out the course and community center without exploring ways to make both profitable. Many new endeavors (Community Center) need time to get established before they start to turn a profit.

The golf course is a good one in terms of layout and degree of difficulty. It should be able to make a profit and let us not get our colons in a wad about the GPS units.

So tell us how long this golf course has been making money, or how long will it take before it makes money? Inquiring folks want to know. Same for the rich mans club.

Golfers, like horse people, always want taxpayers to foot the biggest part of the bill for their play toys....
