When I hear talk about these things getting done and a commitment to these things getting done then I will get excited.

New name, Chief Security Officer, Pro Team. Great? Maybe? I’m more interested in the hearing about the basics getting taken care of.
No one ever proposed changing the name should take priority over anything. What are you going on about?

We are just having a discussion about dreams. At this point, your dream of seeing HBH mowed, cleaned, maintained, is just as fun to dream about as a rebrand. It's fun speculation. We all want it to get turned around. I don't think anyone in this thread is going to disagree with that hot take of yours.

However, if indeed the huge amount sweat/blood/tears actually does come to fruition, the people who did it will probably feel they've earned the right to put a new name on this NEW thing that they have built. Maybe i'm just thinking bigger scale. I hope MM plans to do more than just mow and pick up the trash. Because at the end of the day, it takes a lot of people to operate something as big as HBH at it's full potential. And at that scale, it would have become something HBH has never been.

I do think keeping "Highbridge" in the name is smart though, as I mentioned. But I think it comes down to how bold you are and what you can accomplish. I don't care what HBH has been in the past. I care about what it can be in the future. And that's the fun part

Oh boy....a post condemning posts with an opinion, while defending posting opinions.

Stating HBH will take a lot of work to make it great, while condemning a "hot take".

Perhaps you have never met my friend Kettle......hey, Mr. Pot?

Wait what? You can't take the affect and make it the cause.

"take lot of work" was my response. You're right. You and I thought this to be obvious. But OP made it all sound so easy. This isn't my hot take. It's a response. Should be super simple just as long as they don't listen to DGCR about a rebrand that would surely cause them to forget to do the mowing

Aren't many causes merely affectations on the part of their champions?

As I'm sure you read earlier, the plan was/is to make and keep the courses playable. I imagine that is a very tall order judging from my visit there. I'm happy for MM and crew to get the chance to fix what's wrong with HBH, almost everything except the disc golf and the woods. It was still absolutely worth the trip, and I'd do it again in its current state. When they turn it around, I'll visit as often as I can.

I certainly hope they don't change the name. The courses deserve it. If MM does things right, the community will come around.

Just so you know - the gentleman has designed and installed a course himself. And played Highbridge Hills (perhaps several times). So I'm pretty sure he has a good idea of just how much work is involved.

If you read the comment through that lens you might interpret it differently.

Obviously you don't take over a place like this and not get it back in shape, so you can actually play and enjoy it.
