Couldn't Say it Better Myself

Reading the paper today, I was struck by the cancellation of the golf tournaments. I was tempted to put fingers to keyboard, but Geeguy has already done so in a very cogent post. Go read his analysis, and then contact the city commission and register your distaste for the "management" the city is providing.

I'm relatively cash-unencumbered and not a golfer to boot, so my own perspective on the specific issue is somewhat oblique, but I was struck --no, dumbfounded-- by Ms. Jovick-Kuntz's observation that the courses need to make more money, so if people want to stop giving them money, that's okay.

I can understand that they believe there's more money in day-to-day fees than tournaments, but saying "bugger off" to your customers isn't ever a good idea.

Let's use an analogy. In the retail/wholesale world, I have products that I am willing to sell for a certain price. That price is listed.

However, if someone were to come to me and offer to buy a huge quantity of a certain widget, do you think that my price might go down a skoosh to provide an incentive for that customer to buy from me? You bet it would. I would be an idiot not to do so.

The principle is the same here. While you might get more per person in day-to-day fees, the guarantee of a full course on the day of a tournament should be more than enough incentive to lower prices for that tournament.
