Those who read this blog know that I am nosy person. One of the things I like to look at on-line is bankruptcy filings. That is if they are available free of charge and I don’t have to pay for them, I am nosy but I am also cheap. Recently the upscale Golf Club at Briar’s Creek, about 30 miles outside of Charleston, South Carolina, filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection, with $1.56 million in assets and $37 million in debts. You can see that filing here; https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/1660353-briarcreeklist.html
Now Briar Creek Golf Club has about 210 members, with a refundable initiation fee of $100,000, recently dropped from $160,000, annual dues of $11,700, and a $1,000 annual food minimum at the club house. It has about 50 employees. It is a tad more expensive than Wood Creek.
The filing has a number of interesting things in it, such as individuals / members who owe money to the club.
Anyway if you were interested in how much money it takes to run a golf club you might want to read this filing.
Let me also mention Document Cloud https://www.documentcloud.org/home
It is used by newspaper writers to store large public documents they reference in their articles. You can search and read a large number of public documents . A search of Delmar Delaware brings up a couple of redacted documents for the Delmar police Department, you can search your name, you even search some genealogical information. Nothing is secret anymore.
