Stone Creek wasn't private
Edited by assassin on June 30, 2020, 12:14:46
or, it was open to the public I guess. Does that matter?
You bought on a private course.
As of maybe March 2020, you suddenly find out that you might get... lots of new neighbors? Or an abandoned course?
And now, UIUC owns your backyard view. Perhaps better than having two or three new houses per hole; but do the residents lose golf privileges? (I assume the answer is "your golfing priority just got cut down to about 25% of what it was before".)
If you thought you'd be surrounded by houses of $XYZ value, is that now down the tubes? The gift also includes significant real estate in and around the golf club, including more than 100 residential lots, 70 acres of undeveloped acreage, and a sizeable commercial parcel.
And I wonder what kind of value JW, et al puts on the course? The gift counts toward the $300 million fundraising goal for the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics, which is part of "With Illinois," the $2.25 billion University-wide fundraising campaign.
