    Clearly if they cant afford to keep the memberships at $1100 they dont have very deep pockets at all, Jim. Its not worth a lawsuit because I really dont care enough to pursue it beyond just calling the city counsel and letting them know that about 100 members or so will likely be shopping...

    Jim...Im not going to continue to argue with you on this. FACT....they HAVE my $1100....whether I play or not...its in the bank. FACT...they may or may NOT have someone elses money who made a tee time....that person can cancel and they get no money. We can sit here and do this for a few days but...

    I know....and youre right. Im not giving up something I enjoy over this. I'll either go with the 5 day pass this year or go somewhere else. The whole thing was because I made the mistake of talking to this woman a few times and so by the time the membership thing came up it was becoming very...

    Well, talked to the pro at my home course and its confirmed. The woman wanted to get the price raised for the membership but I guess enough of us had said we'd just go to another course and pay what we're paying now or less so the City Counsel wouldnt raise the price. What they did do, however...

    They wont sell them pro rated. Even right now as the pass only has until March 31st before it expires they are STILL trying to tell it for FULL price. Just got the email last friday, matter of fact, trying to sell the full price membership that expires at the end of winter in March. Ive talked...

    Well, at least someone here gets the point. I guess unless some people are directly affected by something themselves they are incapable of comprehending what someone elses point is.

    No, Im probably just going to stop playing entirely except for once or twice a month once the current membership expires.

    Its more that Ive just gotten to know everyone at the city course I play at most. Its also nice that if one course is closed or delayed because of working on something...or just busy...I can call up another course and get on anyway most days. Its the changing of the dates of the membership...so...

    Yeah, I can play on my current pass for jan-march...but the new pass I'll buy when mine expires will then only be good until the January....9 months.....but still paying full price. I'll get my moneys worth out of it, so Im not concerned about that, but there are guys who dont have the luxury of...

    Yeah....they finally decided last week. The posted the numbers yesterday. Thankfully enough of us got heard by the other pros who kept the whole thing under some control. You have to understand that the ENTIRE motivation for the price increase was this one woman who told me flat out that she...

    Didnt know about it until recently when I saw their website. One thing about that course is....no sand. No water....no trees. Its flat, no personality whatsoever....tiny postage stamp greens too. Its ok for someone who doesnt care about improving because you can hit a ball in any direction and...

    Sorry :D It was the ripping us for three months. The new passes overlap the ones we have by three months which means I have to buy a pass next year that will technically only cover 9 months Im not covered for already (jan - mar) but the price is still the same. Just one way to short us because...

    :D Actually Greg, the main guy at the course I play most of the time, has been pushing me to buy the pass as soon as it goes on sale. He is one who understands that these memberships are money in the bank, unlike the guys who just make a tee time at some random time on Saturday morning who may...

    Complete rip off

    No...it wasnt. That IS my point. I bought the pass for ONE reason...that paying it off in equal monthly payments allowed me to control how much I was spending....$100 a month. I played more because I COULD...not because that was the reason to buy the pass. If it costs more, I simply dont play...

    We have a course down the road here (National Trail) that is $675 for the year and the guy told me that is the price right now. Why would I go above $1100 for the muni courses when I can drive 5 more minutes and pay just over half of that?

    Well, the woman I was talking about kept pushing for a raise in price this year. Apparently she didnt get her way because all the other pros at the other city courses told the folks in charge that it was a bad idea. This woman is ONLY thinking about HER course and how she is inconvenienced. Shes...

    How rounds do you play in a season? The ONLY reason I played so much is solely because the membership is 'unlimited'. If Id had to pay individually I'd have been playing about 2 rounds a month at most by now and likely would have simply packed the clubs away out of disinterest. The price per...
