    I understand they are investing $1,000,000.00 in the golf course alone. This does not include any equipment or buildings. Let's be positive about this and greet the new owner/investors southern style.

    How many times have I heard this story. I noticed there was not any mention as to the golf course itself. I believe it has the potential to be an excellent course if someone with money really wanted to make the investment. I wont however hold my breath on this one........sorry.
