- .Snub? This is the way that the Observer characterizes a major repudiation of the Club's outrageous plan from a planning professional of impeccable credentials? Of course objectivity takes the hind seat to dogma where the Observer is concerned.
- three cheers for monica. it is nice to see someone call it as she sees it without fear and with confidence. a true professional. no one has been entirely against the club improving itself, just the extent of the proposal. and let us not forget the deception of welly at the outset saying the club was investing $400,000,000. it was only when his boss admitted that there was no financing in place and that they were relying on condo sales for the dollars that the truth came out. it must be noted, again, that this so-called five star facility is short changing members who have paid substantial membership fees and annual dues to play golf by removing the driving range. this is, of course, a substantial decrease in services to members without anything in exchange. and who would give the club five stars without the range, except perhaps someone in wells' family. it is imperative that the island side range remain intact under any approval for an enlargement of the club. evans tilles
