    According to an article in the Post, the Presidential golf course (the one on Waxpool across from AOL) is dead. Can't say I'm surprised, it seemed ill-conceived for this day in age (maybe it would have succeeded in the Gorden Gecko 80's or Dot Com boom).

    I didn't even know they managed to actually open fully :) maybe they had the clubhouse finished and opened maybe 3-4 months?

    omg - i hate to say it, but that's hilarious! what a fiasco it's been. i hope they turn it into a public course too. i'm not surprised they weren't making it by just offering corporate memberships.

    especially with all the AOL high level execs moving to New York. Wow, I wonder how much they lost on that venture. I bet the land is still valuable--we need another strip mall or some townhomes perhaps :)

    Maybe they could put a hospital there.

    Yep but the non-hilarious part is that they have not paid the contractors for months. I hope these good folks get their $$$.

    i'm thinking 4 story apt bldgs, attract some DINKS (Double Income No Kids) who don't need a culdesac or yard for kids to play in! we need to cram ppl into every corner of Ashburn to prevent yet another failed restaurant from coming up and coming down. :)

    in all seriousness- public course is a wonderful idea.

    Don't forget that they need to make sure they add some new traffic lights to Waxpool. We don't have enough on that stretch of the road...

    I know one of the owners and ate there. It was VERY good. He was going to get me onto the course...but I hadn't taken advantage of it yet...guess it's too late now. Not sure what happened...but I'll check. I'm sure if I asked him now, he may be a little sensitive about it.

    think the government will bail out the golf course so they can pay the contractors...?
