01[15:10] {@Threei}  "I mean there's 18 golf courses in Victoria alone, and sixty on the island. There's an oversupply of golf out there and not as much demand as there used to be"
01[15:10] {@Threei}  you better hurry, or ese won't have where to enetrtain you
[15:12] {dino} yeah, lots of over building occurred with courses, plus the economy has caused a drop in playing. hopefully things turn around, but who knows? in any case, i would not invest in a golf course, too capital intensive
01[15:23] {@Threei}  1:1
