This doesn’t make any sense to me, your comparing a public golf course being sold to a individual and that individual shutting down access to the public, to someone selling their private property to somebody else and they shut down access to the people that use to recreate there. No matter if you like it or not private property is still private property, it’s not open to the public without permission. I understand loosing places to hunt sucks but Iowa has some of the best public land in the country and if your not willing to work, pay or buy your own ground,then that might be what your stuck with. Nobody deserves to get anything for free, if you use to then you should be thankful for the time you did.I see both sides and would not pay a dime for a $1,000,000 house next to a ritzy private golf club in the city! But to each their own! Not trying to change anyone’s mind and shouldn’t have even chimed into this thread but here is a spin on your analogy. That public course you LOVE to play with your kids next to your house just got bought out by Tiger Woods and now all the people that used to enjoy the reasonably priced public course have to drive across town to a run down course that was already packed! Quality of the golf experience for everyone except Tiger and his friends has gone down and people will quit golfing. I wonder if the city bond to improve that run down golf course gets as many votes after several of its patrons quit golfing. Same question goes for the hunters’ vote to stop a ban on ARs, semi autos, etc. But I bet Tiger sells some clubs for Callaway!
