It was always losing money but "was" is the key here. Soon after he joined they started studying outsourcing the golf course. That happened in January and things are better now.

Hmmm. My business is losing money. I know! I'll hire a manager to hire someone else to run it!

Steve, it would make sense if you paid people more then $100,000/year with benefits to work on your yard like the City does with union workers on the golf course.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
