I think this is excellent for the area. As for its success I'm pretty sure that the short term will be fine (10 yr). The longer term is when the issue of the younger generation will come into play. Golf courses are incredibly labor and materials expensive to maintain. As for what is affordable, well that is very subjective. I live in Columbia MO. To play a Saturday at the municipal or university course it is $25 for 18 w/o cart. Eagle Knoll is a private owned but available to the public at about $45 for 18 with cart. Like anything else discounts abound. All of these courses are nice, but they do not have the full country club/ resort facilities. We do have some very nice private clubs, the courses are nice, the people are nice, the pool is nice, the bar is nice, the clubhouse is nice and the price is "if you have to ask..." I guess if I liked golf I could justify $25 week for my hobby. I couldn't justify country club dues and country club fees every week.
