I’ve been hearing good things about the drainage installed, how long before the rest of the course is complete?
You’re absolutely right about the subs Nick, that’s the only reason I left and that’s the reason why I find the “not for profit club” but a little amusing, why else would subs be raised almost 10% in 2 years with $20m in the bank?! Hubris should be the only reason things would go awry at Eastern IMO.
Members have been told that all drainage will be completed well before winter. Also the drainage levy is short lived and coming off at next subs renewal.
I wonder if the subs raised by 10% was not a testing of the market. I mean Yerring was well past the brink of going under and has somehow survived but for how long, heritage was well below par in condition so only 1 real competitor who was almost full and eastern has a waiting list....so it makes pretty good business sense if you can get it to get another 10% revenue for no extra cost if the market is willing to pay it....like anything not all the market is willing to pay the extra
