30 golf courses in central Oregon???!!!
Did I read that right? (Bulletin. "The Golf Boom is Over.")
That's just crazy.
Meanwhile, you got Bill Smith, who helped build Black Butte ranch saying: "...it would take 120,000 residents to sell 300 memberships, roughly enough to support one private club."
Holy Tiger Club!
Do the math. O.K. He's talking private memberships, but still. It sounds like 2 or 3 private courses would do the job. Maybe a couple more for casual, non-member types. A couple more for tourists?
What am I missing?
