OP Mike that sucks you've had problems with vandalism. I hesitate to pay $50 for a membership because I would then have to convince all the guys I play with to also become members and as you probably already know most people just aren't willing to do that. Also since I live south of lees summit it's a bit of a drive to play enough rounds to warrent the fee. On the other hand it could bring more people and cash to the course if those who could only play it 2-5 times a year could donate $5 to play. I'm probably repeating things you already know but I would be bummed knowing my friends and I can't play that kick ass course.
