On the MORNING of FEB 25, Harry Hurley from WPG 1450 Radio talked about the controversial activity revolving around municipal golf courses. Jim Fraser of Mays Landing Country Club was the in-studio guest discussing the EHT Emerald Links. Brigantine Golf Links was also discussed since it wants to operate like McCulloughs Emerald Links.

These below market value packages would certainly make it more difficult for Jaworski to turn a profit in the near term.
