Now, out of panic I would suppose—the Quigley development comes in with an after hours compromise to better affect his chance of annexation. The biggest fact is the true lack of water for both the houses and most of all the golf course. In addition the golf course cannot be affordable. It takes $1.1 to 1.5 million annually to operate an 18 hole course. In sheer numbers, that means roughly 12,800 rounds of 18 holes based on bigwood's $86/ 18 holes, not counting cart rental. This means that from April to November 36 people per day have to play 18 holes of golf, regardless of weather. I wonder if the folks at Blaine county Rec District have done the math. No matter how you pencil it, golf cannot be affordable, or profitable.
So who is going to subsidize the disaster? Oh yeah, we have already got two disasters (Sweetwater and Cutters) going in front of this one!
