Visited Rosanna today. Talked with their new GM. The good news is that range balls are included in the membership fee. The club owns their land but because of the the flood plain and some developmental restrictions it is worth only a few million, much less than the $50M or so that Heidelberg is worth. There is some debt on their books, but that is probably not unusual.
The isolation of RGC is certainly impressive...you just can’t see much of the outside world.
I was impressed with what I saw on and off the course.
RGC have a membership category that is essentially a 5.5 day membership (I.e not Sat or Thurs PM) and you don’t have to pay the entrance fee until your second year. This flexibility is attractive given the uncertainty about where we will live.
I note that the government is going for Plan A, so Heidelberg seems safe from the bulldozers.
We will play Rosanna tomorrow and Heidelberg next week.
