The Little Course That Could
(SANDWICH, MA) The golf course business is a tough one, even when it’s on a miniature scale. And while full-sized golf courses seem to be selling to the highest bidding developer at an alarming rate, this course, on some of the most valuable real estate in the country is not for sale. Boston’s NPR News Station, WBUR, reports that Mo and Sylvia Burke, whose Sandwich Mini Golf sits on land worth over $1 million, refuse to sell. Hard to blame them. Mo began building the course in 1950 when he was just 15 years old. It wasn’t much of a money maker until Cape Cod’s tourism industry exploded in the 1970s. Now in his 80s, Mo could take the money and run. But he won’t. As WBUR reports, “After 66 years of working on the course, Mo just doesn't seem to know how to stop.” Guess there’s still a little “quaint” left in old Cape Cod.
