" LOL! A degree? Seriously? Does a college offer this? and if so why? LOL! "

Spoken by someone who has no idea at all what it takes to manage and operate a golf course.

letsplaygolf, everything Kringle and Carrizo does is without regard for anybody around them. I truly don't care what people of this caliber do and do everything I can to stay away from them. Their money is all that matters to them. Everybody that I have ever met that has worked for either say what grumpy, arrogant, self-centered, self-absorbed individuals they are. I guess it would be nice to have people worshiping you even though you are a dyck, just because you have money. NOTTTTTTTT

The way is being paved for the Avalon Lakes owner to take over Old Avalon. Money talks. Typical Warren politics. We don't need a guy who drove away the LPGA tournament from 1 and possibly 2 of his courses. Avalon Lakes is no longer a Golf Digest Top 100 course anymore since he took it over. If you are a member of his courses and don't like something there or he doesn't like something that you do, he'll just tell you to leave. He doesn't need you as a member. After all, it is his club. So why would this person care about the public golfer who frequents Old Avalon? Let's get an individual who is qualified and educated in golf course operations to run it, not an engineer by trade who thinks he knows how.

Craig, they did operate it like a business. This is how business' that get gooberment funds operate in America today. Take all you can and get out. It's sad to think we all donated to the undermining of this resource in our area. I'm sure there are plenty of local people that could make this place run efficiently and with a profit. Maybe not an astronomical profit, but a profit.

Thanks SailorB. That is news to me. Where can I sign up for a college degree in Friday night poker playing? This also would look great on a resume.

"The qualifications of such a position would require a degree in golf course management."

LOL! A degree? Seriously? Does a college offer this? and if so why? LOL!

Keeping Old Avalon Golf Course open so people can smack a 1-1/2 " ball around some grass is the least of peoples worries.
