The text of his post:

Dreamers also need to be realists. Due to physical limitations, the reality of my dream for Highbridge Hills has proven to be unsustainable. The property will be listed with a realtor soon. Do you know anyone looking for the most scenic acreage in Ashland County? Highbridge Hills will remain open for business until the property is sold. I sincerely want to thank everyone that was a part of my pursuit of my dream.

But it's understandable.

Thanks David.

Dang.....looks like Highbridge needs to become a priority. It was slated for next year.

Maybe one of those rich mega stars of the DGPT will come save Highbridge?

It was an amazing story, that he rescued it and gave it a few more years of life.

Just one more reminder that private courses are ephemeral. Play them while you have them.

Really hope that whoever decides to buy the property doesn't get rid of the courses..

Would absolutely suck if HH suffered the same fate as Black Bear in Crandon.. never even got to play that one.

"Physical limitations" seems to indicate that maybe the maintenance is too much? Sooo much work has been done out there in the past few years. I don't know what it would take to make HBH sustainable. Just a bummer.

Didn't MM suffer a heart attack or something similar just after buying the property?

I really wish that the sport has "grown" to the point where private courses were a sustainable entity. Not just a labor of love.

Yo, don't you be talking about ephemeral private courses until I manage to swing a SC bagging trip.

Ha, ha. Half the top-tier on my all-time-favorites list consists of extinct private courses. Ours is probably a bit more secure than most....but if a nasty novel virus had been just a bit nastier, it might be gone, too.
