as the character of Jekyll Island State Park.

If you love Jekyll Island and think only golfers should be interested in the outcome of the Golf Course Master Plan (GCMP) process, you are wrong and here is why: All the concept plans presented to the JIA Board of Directors and the public on January 28th by Vincent Design, LLC, eliminate 9 to 18 holes of golf. The plans include "development opportunities" ranging from 17 to 62 acres.

The public is now being invited to comment on Vincent Design's four concepts for the GCMP. You may comment in brief or at length on any or all of the concepts presented by Vincent Design.
Some of the topics that have drawn public attention you might consider when submitting your comments are:
Are there ways to increase golf course income without closing part of the Golf Course Complex (GCC)?
If 9 or 18 holes of the GCC are closed, what should be done with the acreage that would no longer be used for golf?
Should part of the GCC be used for development to generate revenue to improve the remaining GCC? If so, what kind of development would be appropriate?
Are there recreational activities that might be offered on the retired part of the GCC that could generate revenue for the JIA to use to improve or otherwise alter the remainder the GCC?
