Hope they got cash or a "Certified Check" from good ole JJ! Cause if they didn't, he'll probably end up owning it without paying for it! Just a thought!

It doesn't really matter, either way the place will go down in a new history! Wreckage, Havoc, or whatever else you want to call chaos, just like "the Greenbrier" has.

He bought Oakhurst Links. I expected he would when the auction was first announced. It makes sense. He simply waited until it was almost ready to go back to the bank before he struck - just like he did the Greenbrier, just like he did Wintergreen... That's how JJ rolls.

If he puts some effort into retaining the history and keeping it an old time links course, it'll be good. Something tells me thought, that it will have some kind of tacky, cartoony aspect that ruins it - or he'll hold onto it until the economy turns around and unload it. Buy low, sell high.
