In this article, the writer is not encouraging on the future of golf in general. He gives 2 main reasons for the decline in interest for the game – lack of time and money. But we know that Charbonneau Club offers the perfect solution that removes these barriers.
Thank you to Denny Atkin for pointing this out in his reply to the Oregonian:
Letter to the Editor
The two key issues cited as causing the decline in golf play were a lack of time and money in today’s busy world. As an “executive course,” we offer great alternative to both of these issues. Most 18-hole rounds of golf are completed on our shorter course in about three hours, much different than the 4 to 5 hours at most public courses. And, with a green fee of barely over $20, it is a great value. We welcome 9-hole rounds as well, with our three nine-hole courses to choose from.
Bottom line, our business is gaining, not losing, and we invite the public to come play our 27 professionally maintained holes. Players use all the clubs in their bags and encounter challenging water holes and plenty of hazards to make the game challenging!
