I really don't understand how selling $10m worth of lots will offset all of the costs to put in roads/sewer/water etc. It is nice to see in this town, but where are the 180 rich people going to come from to build on these lots. What is the attraction in moving to this area for retirement? Not the cost of property/building/amenities. You can buy a much nicer house in Hot Springs Village on a course for less than cost of building here.

This isn't just an El Dorado issue. It happens all over the country. Nobody makes a profit until you are on the 3rd owner.

You can bust your butt all you want to but it isn't going to change the fact that no matter how beautiful the golf course is, it isn't going to be a money maker for El Dorado. There are already two golf courses here that don't bring in that much if any. Sure, you may have expensive lots for sale all around it but where do you think the money is going to come from to buy them with? Also as soon as it can be done you are planning to shut the golf course off from the general public and make it a private bushwood country club. Good luck with that one Judge Smails. Why didn't your family use all these millions to build a manufacturing plant and create some real jobs for El Dorado? People aren't going to move to El Dorado for a damn golf course, they are going to move here for a decent paying job.

It looks good from the road. Just talked to a guy I work with and he's considering building there. He said there's already one home going up.

You forget about retirees. Many of us are fairly well off.

Anyone know how many lots of the 180 have sold so far? Just wondering how it was coming along.

Still a lot of them left. I believe the number is around 22 and holding.

I don't think they have electricity, but they do have water. Two homes completed.

They have more than 180, Over 200 I believe.

A article almost a year ago to the day stated they were 80% done. I'm not sure where they are now, but they do have cart paths and curbing up.

I have driven by and night. There is electricity at the house that is completed. I also heard that the Pastor of a nearby church has built or is buidling a house there and rumor was that the new Sheriff was building there ... anyone know if those tidbits are true?

WHEN is the course scheduled to open??

You have it all wrong.
Dad can max out his credit card playing at the golf club. Mattox Park is a choice for the kids to swim. For those who can't swim, they can hang out at the Boys Club.
The decided to come to Boomtown and have a good family time.
Mom shops at the two stores at the Mall and gets a pedicure at the Asian place that used to be a gas station.
Too bad Ryan's closed down - the perfect family place to eat. The kids balked at all the Chinese and Mexican places, so mom and dad had to settle for Wendy's. Since the the credit card got maxed out at Mystic, Creek, this worked better anyway. He did have some pocket change.
Dad is tired from a long day playing 18 and schmoozing with the others, who he thinks are rich people, but they just have the right credit card also.
Then, when it's time to leave El Dorado, dad stops by the convenience store and pays $4.00 for gas to get back home. He was lucky he was not robbed there.
When the family arrives back to their home, they feel satisfied and happy. But, the kids couldn't swim so were sent to Boys Club and they were picked on the entire time they were there.
Oops mom got a fungus from the Asian pedicure but nevertheless her feet are feeling relaxed.
Later in the month, Mom got mad when the credit card bill came in and she saw the Mystic Creek expenses along with the new set of Pings. Dad said he had to get them because he couldn't play with the Wilson's at such a prestigious golf club or he would get laughed at.
Dad and mom fought all week about the credit card bill and then mom got another credit card and came to Ron Grigg's office to file for divorce. The credit card was immediately maxed for Grigg's retainer fee.
She then stopped by MCSA to see about the toenail fungus and they wouldn't see her because the credit card was rejected and she didn't have $1,500 to pay up front.
This couple's life was ruined by Mystic Creek. They now live at the Salvation Army and are trying to repair their marriage.
They have started attending Cross Life Church where they can at least think they are the special group who are getting into Heaven.
But Bro Dewain is starting to sweat a bit because they haven't put anything in the offering plate. Bro. Dewain decides it's time for one of those "buy your way into Heaven" services.
Moral of the story: Mystic Creek is the devil incarnate!!!

Love it! You forgot to mention that Dad got kicked out of the house and got Steve Graves number from a friend. After emptying the savings for the deposit fee of $500 for a 600 square foot home with two bedrooms and one bath, he funds the AC is not working and the kitchen still carries that ever glamorous 1970's lime green color scene. With a fridge that's Luke warm and no dishwasher, Dad definitely has his work cut out for him. He reassured himself that this is only temporary, but we all know how good ol Grips will run this situation out. A year has passed, and months of harassing Graves about fixing some of the minor needs that a good landlord would handle, Dad looks for a new place of residence, only to find that he will not be getting his deposit back for the new "conditions" that the house is in. With the $500 a month Dad was paying for rent, he asks Graves why he never used that money to fix the problems Dad has constantly been bringing to his attention. Graves tells him that he is too busy to talk; he has to find a new sucker to stick in that house.
