$6.5 Million. That might take a while to sell.

I didn't realize that it is "currently operated as a Christian retreat."

Anyone wanna go halfsies?

Seriously though, I'm sorry to hear that. What are the chances it sells to someone who's going to continue to maintain and operate the courses? My guess is it's not likely, which would be a huge shame and loss. Makes me glad I played it when I did.

Wow. 6.5 doesn't really seem like that much.

I agree with Qikly that when it sells, that's the end of the courses --- if not before.

That's sad news, we really enjoyed those courses and were hoping to see them again.

How many active members do we have on this site? If we all pitch in like $1000 we could have a DGCR owned community retreat.

I call dibs on the caretaker position.

I find it interesting that the realty listing doesn't mention disc golf at all, and only one photo features a disc golf hole.

@ $1000 apiece we would need 6500 peeps + upkeep! Having stayed there and loved the place, I agree that 6.5 million seems more than fair.

Have any of you ever gone to Selah unannounced to play? I'm confused by the below.

E-mail conversation with Rebecca the General Manager:

Me: I saw the "For Sale" listing for Selah. Are the disc golf courses still open as the sales process moves forward?

Rebecca: Yes they are! Just still need reservations to play.

Me: Reservations? I've only played when staying as a guest, but I thought the public could show up and play any time. Is that not true?

Rebecca: The public can play. $20 per day per person. $40 for a cart per day (will sit two) BUT...we do have to have disc golf reservations.
