Opening in 21  http://britishcolumbiagolf.org/uncategorized/4638-sagebrush-gets-a-new-lease-on-life

  • 2 weeks later...

It was a fun course.

 

What sticks out most in my mind was that the greens were massive and there were no official tee boxes. If I remember correctly the lowest score on the hole was able to choose where you teed off within a certain range. It was odd. No yardage markers either.

 

There were like 8 guys who stopped their round and were fishing on I believe the 12th hole pond? It was surreal haha.

 

At the time I went they were letting out a max of like 12 groups per day. You needed a code at the front gate to get in. You barely even see any other golfers out there.

Funnily enough streetview from Oct '18 shows the for sale sign - "Unique opportunity" ;-)

And satellite view is promising, it's definitely not at NLE-levels yet. But ya I wouldn't plan anything around it being open and maybe if you're in the neighbourhood some time and it is back up and running you're in luck.

No Longer Exists. Agreed, it's a model that has worked South of the border, but the timing, internal-wranglings, and location have all seemingly conspired against it, in a regular cadence of - oh ffs now what.

I had a few fun weekends there over the years. A really great place to go with some buddies, but we all expected each time we played would be our last as the business model made no sense (and no cents). Many times we were the only 4 golfers on the property and there would be 6 or 7 people working. Given that cost was very reasonable as meals, carts, unlimited golf & fishing and hotel rooms were included - I had no idea how they could turn a profit.

Sagebrush was open in 2020.. played tobiano in September and the starter mentioned he played there the week before..

I was in my local golf shop today and the young girl behind the counter said she played a university tournament there in 2020.. 

Curious to see if they open it to public play in 2021 

Thats very interesting to hear.  I plan on playing a few rounds around Kamloops/Vernon this summer.  If Sagebrush is open to public I may have to rip over there as well.

There still doesn't seem to be anything posted publicly about it... fingers crossed as I would love to play there  in 21 as well 

Enjoy the area we have plenty of great tracks in the kamloops and  Vernon area

Never played it but looks like a great course. They are going to need a magical, almost mythical, model to survive. The course is in the middle of nowhere and their uber-expensive, golf-community, elitist experience failed miserably the first time. I think it will have to be a solid upscale but not super-pricey daily fee facility.

Could they be the next Cabot?

I think now is the time to open a course with a golf boom going on... Its only a hour from Kamloops and if the old reviews are anything close to what they were... i think they will be ok... As long as they dont price themselves as a predator ridge at $200 a round

I talked to a few people that played there last year and it was in pretty decent shape

Shuswap,   when we last played there 2 years before it closed, it was $225 (Cdn) per player for all day golf, lunch & powercart.    It wasn’t walkable for most people like us although one day we saw some young guys hoofing it.   (A rumour floating at the time was NHLer Jarome Iginla jogged the course.)

 

 We paid for our hotel in Merritt because the cabins weren’t finished.

 

We all thought $225 was reasonable, but as 2bGood noted some days we were the only group on the property.

Curious to see if they keep that price point or go with something closer to tobiano pricing.. I am not sure what there pricing is this year.. somewhere around the 150 mark would be my guess

Agreed this is the best time to re-open.

 

People will have no problem paying $250 to $300 per round (with cart).

 

The question for me do they have deep enough pockets to set up the course properly to support an ask of $250 to $300 a round.

 

There is a stupid amount of money floating around.

 

A buddy of mine just bought a Ferrari 488 for north of $500k and that is not including tax of another $100k.  Dealership would not even haggle one cent.  Take it or leave it.  They will easily sell to someone else if you don't buy it today.

 

Houses with multiple offers as in over 30 of them and more than half without subjects.  Final price is massively over asking.  Funny article in the Financial Post yesterday about how the CMHC was predicting the risk of a housing crash last year and how wrong their so called experts were.  I think the experts should stop pretending they know anything about the housing market. 

 

Great time to start selling residential lots there.  People will pay anything to get property outside of metro areas.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
