I played there...it's Morgan Wrights place....Hyzer Creek...very cool course. Some steep areas..wheras you are better off wearing high ankle support when you play.
The place has a well...electricity..well you can read the description. The cabin is small but badass....very expensive marine curved glass shower in there....sweet place....he had to fight to keep the structures there...pesky building permits and crap...he didn't drwa any when he started the project...then got lucky .He fought for over a year before he found and used a clause in NY law about fishing shanties & hunting cabins. Well worth the current bid at 11000...I would expect to see it close at 6 figures...I know what he spent on clearing the land in the picture.
Hell...I even helped him work on his mower deck.
Hell if one of you guys bids onit...look for my red Champ Beast at the bottom of 12...HA!!
30 acres in Eastern New York for less than $500/acre...with or without a cool course on it?! I gotta believe that bidding will get up over $2,000-$3,000 per acre by the end of the bidding, but who knows? Already prepped my wife though for a move to rural New York with the kiddies if that bidding stays under $20,000-$25,000...lol. :-)
It's a sweet course.....he bored holes into various rock with a coring bit.......then stuck the poles into them....he used, I believe, an industrial epoxy or hydraulic water stop cement...one of those rocks sits in the middle of a small stream...hole 16, I think. Most of the time the stream is just a trickle...but occasional it's flowing.
I will watching the bidding too....Might throw a bid on it too. It will likely be into 6 figures though....but hell even at 1000 per acre it's a steal. It is located in wine and horse country.....super nice area. The property is rugged and rocky...not real easy to develop.
The more rugged and less easy to develop, the better! I own 30 acres of similar land in the Northwoods of Minnesota, and it is the best! Miles from anywhere...so not really ideal for a course (little/no player traffic is possible), but beautiful trees, terrain, a river, bordered on the North by a State forest, etc. If the New York property went for a song, I might consider investing in it for the heck of it too. I'd need a "local" to help with caretaking, but if the per-acre price is cheap enough, it would make for a terrific investment.
Provided there isn't any ancient Native American burial grounds on the property...or it isn't a landing zone for the invasion of the evil aliens...or it doesn't have a bunch of former contracted mob hits buried in shallow graves. :-P
