I've had it with big clubhouses and big green fees, says golfer

Big ClubhouseI couldn't agree more with Chris Baldwins' comments about the 'high green fees caused by pointlessly huge clubhouses'. I can remember a couple of years back visiting some golf courses in Myrtle Beach with our local golf pro. He had just finished overseeing the multimillion dollar expansion at his golf course and was lamenting at the expense of it all and how it was going to be paid for - by the golfers of course. The very busy golf course we were visiting had the smallest of clubhouses with minimal facilities, but was a truly magnificent course that spent it's money where it made it. He had made the comment - "this is what a golf course is supposed to be about, the golf".
