This is just great news! I'm not a golfer, but I'm thrilled.
This is the kind of news which will help hold property values up after Measure G fails.
Stop worrying Yes on G folks.. all's well.

Get your facts straight. Do you know that Calippe golf course cost the city of Pleasanton over $30,000,000 dollars to build.
The notes payable and interest owed on this Pleasanton Golf course is going to cost Pleasanton Tax Payers far more than any percieved home value increase from having a nice golf course.
The revenue's generated from this course are not going to be nearly enough money to help pay for both the (1) Annual operating cost and (2) most importantly - the note plus interest owed.
Where is that money owned going to come from - you got it - Pleasanton Tax Payers.
I love golf like a lot of others - but this golf course is and will be a money pit for the city of Pleasanton for a lot of years.

I got my facts straight, Brad. You took the whole post out of context. I rather imagine your jockey's are in a jumble because you have to pay for 2 golf courses.. I'd bet you fought Callippe [you can't spell either!] from the start.
The point of my post was [is?] the Yes on G folks are fearing their property values will go down if Pleasanton Schools suffer by lack of a parcel tax. I was trying to assuage their fears by pointing out that having a top 10 'municipal' course here will help sustain their values.
They should sleep well with that knowledge, don't 'cha think??
