Letter To The Editor – The Roanoke Times

Write about a course for Average Joe golfer
Two times now, The Roanoke Times has written about this new, fancy golf course being built for 260 Tom and Bertha Betterthanyou’s (“Golf getaway,” April 17 news story, and “Uniquely exclusive,” July 22 sports story). The average Joe couldn’t care less about Ballyhack since he will never get to see it.

The Roanoke Times would better serve its readers and the public if it would write about Countryside Golf Course and urge the city of Roanoke to really invest in this golf course instead of some amphitheater in a swamp.

Countryside Golf Course would return money to the city and give the average Joe a nice place to play golf. Something for the public for a change. Those 260 elite who The Times wrote about are not even reading your paper. Their noses are stuck in The Wall Street Journal.


*** Thank you, Wendell Poff – there is nothing that need be add to your letter!

This Average Joe golfer will get to take to the home course on Sunday. I’ll be sure to give a report.
