Of course not! It would be stupid for them to purchase when they have no idea what they were going to be responsible for.

They are working on the course to change it into a Nature Refuge for Native plants, flowers and animals....
It should be really nice.

Like they do every year, twice a year. Never has the course been closed for days, much less more than a week which is the "plan".

Ask the 5,000 sq ft house owners in Cabot what happened to their course at Grey Stone. It shut the "f**k down. Do you think that hurt the value of their "golf course view" property? One course is back open but I'm not sure about the other one. At least Ridgepoint has Fowler who could buy the course with change he has in his ashtray in cars and jets. Lucky for you!

Isn't it sad when a bunch of narcissist's playground will soon be open to the overall wearing PBR drinking demographic.

I wouldn't compare RidgePointe to Greystone. First, off the course that is still closed had no homes on it. Second, there are several interested buyers in RidgePointe.

I say the POA dues will be $2000 a year and that is a bargain to have a private play ground. The house values are very much tied to the golf course. It's not cheap to live at ridge pointe. Sadly there is so little play on this course. I would think it would be best to open it up like Sage Meadow and let it become semi private. Something will happen in the near future and everyone should just pay there fair share and just do it. There is no such thing as a free lunch. Wallace has been more than fair for the last several years with funding keeping Ridgepointe alive. To the best of my recollection Wallace didn't build Ridge pointe. He and Mr Loberg helped out with the Tennis center and 19th hole at a price of 2.7 Million... The smallest act of kindness never goes unpunished. It takes a village to keep a golf course open.

You are correct that the course that's still closed didn't have houses on it but that was part of the draw of building/owning at Greystone, 36 holes of championship golf. And Greystone had several buyers that didn't get approved for the loan after the bank did an appraisal of the properties. Even a few of the property owners couldn't raise enough money to buy the course. I'm not sure why Fowler doesn't want to own the course. It's very easy to show quarterly losses in the spring, winter, and fall. Great tax write offs. The are conglomerate companies that own courses just for the tax benefits. And since Greystone wasnt a good example, how about Northills in NLR? Used to be one of the best courses in Arkansas. Now it has very nice houses on what looks like flat abandoned ski runs. Doesnt even resemble a golf course anymore.

I don't remember it being quite that much, but they did pony up a lot for free, or to take control of the development company which owned the land. The real DA's were those who joined for $8900 right before this happened, I guess their equity in RP is worthless now.
