Get out of the woods dude you have lost touch of reality . The three courses by me had their best years ever and 99% locals filling them daily before the atlantic bubble opened . One owner is an good friend of a old hunting bud and we talk a few times a year and after a terrible cold spring figured the year was screwed and could not imagine how it ended. Best year he ever had
The sport of golf has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years ask any golfer and what is wrong with millionaires buying up stuff here they spend more money than those on EI here or on pension
I lived in Cape Breton not far from the golf course. The same thing was done by the Germans years ago. The boom was suppose to be so big they put an office right at the causeway. Some thought building big riding, horse farms would attract locals. Nope, as the locals could not afford it. They slowly disappeared. Have a look on viewpoint some time at properties near the golf course. 400% increase in taxes. Nothing has changed there for any locals, every thing just got more expensive. The millionaires are pushing them out. The bars, the restaurants etc. Homes are being torn down as millionaires keep buying up the town property. The golf course built a wall to hide the remaining town from those flying in. To think the stupid liberals were about to give 18 mil of our money to them.

So in this thread it’s been mentioned numerous time that the un vaxed would have trouble getting medical treatment etc. Haven’t seen that. In the past six months I’ve been to three different types of specialists. Eye doc ( two different specialists) throat specialist who saw me within two weeks of my referral and a plastic surgeon for skin cancer ( becel carsanomo cells (spelling likely wrong) not melanoma) also within two weeks of my referral. Asked if vaxed by all but no problem when I answered no. Today before my surgery I was asked if vaxed by four different people but none gave me any flack when I said no but one nurse actually whispered good for you!

I don't know anything about the top courses here 3D just the ones around my home and those are doing very well and all the boys are doing is complaining how hard it is to get a tee time
Guys that have not golfed in years have come back since covid for something to do
Then again I remember a few of them saying did the top courses not drop their prices and do a special package once the atlantic bubble opened to get locals and those from Atlantic canada to golf there
I am pretty sure they did since I remember one bud telling me he got a chance this summer to golf at capot under that interm program which he could never afford to do prior
Cheers
Yes they had some specials last two yrs but that’s because the yanks weren’t allowed in nor were people outside NS for a while. I’ve played there other years but now refuse to due to the high prices not worth it, the links course isn’t that great. However the cliffs is a breath taking course and very highly ranked worldwide but I refuse to pay that much money for a round of golf. Famous PGA courses don’t charge that much!!!

Are you close to Sydney? Those courses are way cheaper but of course so are most.
Pretty much all golf courses have had extremely busy years the pst two seasons and will likely continue to. At my course I had to book my tee time four weeks in advance which I did, pretty simple for guys like me cause I KNOW I will be playing Sunday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday every week!

I will ask one more time how is this not helping the economy. Did your mom ever tell you no one cares about old , sick or poor people which makes up a big percentage of our locals. sad but true

Yep and those courses like yours were booked solid. Have honestly never seen so many cars in their parking lot on nice days

NO ONE CAN BE DENIED ESSENTIALS - ( THAT IS THE LAW OF THIS ENTIRE COUNTRY ) - and if you listen closely to dr Strang you will hear him say so! That’s why non vaxed can and will always be allowed to shop and get medical treatment.

Any bets on that one :) What law the one that is allowing people to be forced to get vaccines
There are already docs that won't see unvaccinated people and they cannot force them to see them either
Lets remember to talk about this in 2 years and see what takes place

I had the same experience, Trip D. Just got out of the hospital after aortic aneurysm graft and aortic bicuspid valve replacement. Nurses were top notch. All very supportive regarding the unvaxxed. Many expecting the system to crash because of the POV to work rule. It's amazing how an unvaccinated nurse is worse than having no nurse at all, to some..... Let's hold em down like little girls and make em get vaccinated, FFS

Triple D, a friend I hunt and fish with already sent me a screen shot of an email to him from his family doctor saying their office would not permit you in without it. So it most certainly will happen. I think however that the only way that is permitted to be legal is that having a family dr clinic to go to is not a necessary health requirement. I’m sure everyone can still access a dr, via emergency And such, but a personal clinic is allowed to make their own rules.

I didnot say anything but I could not see my dentist ( this fall when I broke off a tooth) or eye doctor in August without my proof of vaccine and they both copied it and added it to my file nor could my daughter in her last visit to the walk in clinic
Like you said their set up/ clinic their rules
Cheers

Yes our world has changed so much over this. The evil hateful things on face book ( my wife reads them to me cause I’m not on fb) are very saddening. Hard to believe so many people are so evil like when they say- I hope all the un vaxed get covid and die or children should be taken away from parents who don’t get their kids vaxed. Very sad.
Too many people have been totally brainwashed. At this point it is impossible yes totally and completely impossible that it’s the un vaxed spreading the virus!

That’s terrible -truly depressing. The doctors in that clinic most certainly don’t even believe in their own sacred oath. They took that oath swearing to help heal mankind without exception or prejudice!
