Would you buy a golf course if you won either the Mega Millions or Powerball Jackpot this week?

If so which golf course or should I say golf courses?


I know I would and given my wife's and I dream is to own a home in Montecito I'd likely buy Rancho San Marcos and La Purisima. I love both those courses, would restore them to immaculate shape, keep them maintained in immaculate shape and give all GK'ers enormous discounts to play them.

* I might buy Sandpiper too

Nice, Johnny!

I'm not sure I would get in the golf business or own a golf course if I win. But I know I would have a monthly GK & friends outing at different courses each month. It won't be free, but it would have some nice prices, fun event gatherings before and after the rounds and even some entertainment (live band performances), food and drinks for sure.

I'm in for RSM! I love that course and it's located in some great cycling territory (both road and mountain) Same here, the wife and I love the Santa Barbara/ Montecito area, so no issues retiring there. Course would be free for all GK'ers except Rob, he'd have to pay triple for knocking me out of GK Cup 12!

Might have to be part owner in Sandpiper too so it would only be open to GK'ers one day a week. I'm dying to get back on that course.

About $900 million would be enough to buy a lot of things.

A golf course that breaks even would do. Johnny being the CEO on a handsome salary. Full privileges for ALL GKers. A Tom Fazio design somewhere nice.

Oh back to reality 0-3 on the CA lottery weekend not one number on any of the three tickets Mega, Power or Super Lotto.

Like my golf game not the expected result but I will keep trying and dreaming...

I would build my own Course!

I'd plant 1,000 tall pines trees around a course next to the ocean so you get kind of a mountain feel and ocean views on certain holes. There would be 3 island greens and water on 10 holes. Par 5's will be 500 yards except one that will be 650. Par 3's will be 140,160,180 and 200 yards with various elevation changes throughout the course. The only Place I think I could build this course would be the Central CA coast or north.

The only way to play it is if you are a member of GK as well.


Is it Practical? Heck No but $1.6 billion is enough to do whatever I want.

Nope. Bad investment. But I would buy a bad ass home on Lake Tahoe (NV) and a boat, then off to Maui for another home and a large yacht. Summer in Lake Tahoe and Winter in Maui. And yes, I would fly on a private jet every time.

If you think I would even consider living in CA and paying taxes to this state, think again LOL

I used to say I'd resurrect Moreno Valley Ranch if I won the lottery, but with that happening already now, I guess I don't need to play.

Maybe I'd bring back Quail Ranch.

Wait... Why am I hanging out in the IE after I win the lottery?
