Yes it is a sad week for the golf industry, particularly when individuals
pour their heart and soul into a workplace, only for it to be sold off, for corporate greed. All the fighting to be certified for the ISO 4000 whatever it is , down the tubes.

Now more runoff, more traffic, less wildlife, further travel to other courses to play golf.....hope they enjoy the money

interesting perspective considering both courses have been losing money since opening. No greed there They have been employing people and contributing to economy all this time.

Pelican will go to a new operator owner. NL who knows their outcome. Problem with golf here is that most are not run as a business.

 Man bites off golfer’s finger during brawl

 

A golf match turned violent in Massachusetts on Friday when a golfer bit off another man’s finger. The altercation happened while the two men played a local course.

According to WCVB-TV, a 47-year-old man is in custody and facing mayhem charges after the incident. The brawl occured at Southers Marsh Golf Club in Plymouth, Mass.

Police raced to the seen Friday evening after receiving a 911 call about the golf course brawl.

They arrived to find “the victim had his finger bitten off to his knuckle.” The rest of the unidentified man’s finger was put on ice as he was rushed to the hospital for treatment.

The report states that it was not clear whether alcohol was involved in the fight, nor did they know the nature of the relationship between the two men.

You can watch WCVB-TV’s full report below.

Word here in FNQ is that Paradise Palms may close in October this year. That came to me from a member. He was worried because his golden handshake included a couple of years membership. Residents around the boundary are worried that they will lose their pleasant outlook onto the course. What used to be the practice fairway and the seventh hole were sold off based on their proximity to the golf course so those developers will suffer. There is now a road across part of the old practice fairway. And the old par five first hole has been butchered into a very ordinary par 4 and a par 3 to the old green. Very poor result from the local accountant who has controlled the administration of the property.

 

Very sad if the closure comes to pass. It has always seemed to me to be the big golfing draw card to the Cairns area. It was originally built as a destination for Japanese tourists. When the Japanese money left it seems to have become just one more golf facility that can't fund itself.

A shame but signs of the times.
