SE Valley Private Club Sink? or Swim?
I have posted before I am sick of my over crowded "private" club at Seville. Course is just above average, practice area is great, conditions pristine, but for a foursome within a week there is no chance of playing before 1 pm. No exaggeration. Irrespective of day (later on weekends). For the same course I would be willing to pay a much higher initiation fee (Im assuming it is about 8K to join now, and I pay over $700/month dues) and higher dues to get a legit private experience. Yes it is club corp (revenue over experience) and I knew that from the beginning, it was just the recession had membership at an all time low.
That brings me to my question. Unlike other parts of the valley, Gilbert has a derth of private golf. Lets assume you could create a quality course (Im assuming Desert Forest type track), limit membership to say around 250 golf only members. Does it sink or swim drawing from the SE valley?
I would join today @ 100k initiation and 1500 monthly.
