New SE Valley Private Sink? or Swim?
I have mentioned before my disappointment with my overcrowded "private" home course at Seville. I knew what it was when I joined (although during the recession it was not so crowded). It is a slightly above average course with above average conditioning, but to get a tee time for a foursome, a week out, any day of the week before 1pm has not been possible. That brings me to my question: Lets assume you could build a course fast and firm of the quality of Desert Forest in the SE valley. Limit membership to 250 golf only members. Would the course sink or swim? What would initiation and dues have to be to make that feasible?
I would pay more than I do now (I think it is 8K initiation now, and I pay over $700/month in dues) for Seville if it were private. The mythical course above I would pay 100K and 1500/month to join if it were within 15 mins of my house.
