Just been informed in the mar menor golf shop that we cannot renew our annual memberships this week because IRM has decided that there will no longer be a membersip category. The reason is they feel that they are not making enough money out of memberships and that they will make more out of charging people 50 euro green fees instead.
Its a remarkable train of thought in a business term to turn away 2000 Euro up front and snub two members in the misguided belief that they will then pay 50 euro each per round of golf. Here's one who will not pay it we will take our business elsewhere.
This is no reflection on the staff at mar menor whom we have always found to be most polite and helpful, however this latest move from a company trying to sell properties on a golf resort whilst at the same time removing access to membership on that course is bizaar.
If you are contemplating buying property on Mar Menor, Condado or La Terraza to play golf, think again.
Irm/olagolf do not deserve support.
