Tom Edrington

Tom Edrington spent the first 10 years of his misguided youth as a sports writer for the Tampa Tribune. His career brought him face to face with many of sports greatest stars -- Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Muhammad Ali, Don Shula, countless Hall of Fame NFL stars, more PGA Tour players than he can count. In 1980 he was honored by the Golf Writers Association of America for writing the best news story that year, his coverage of Jack Nicklaus' U.S. Open victory at Baltusrol. Today, 36 years later, golf is still a great part of his life, thanks to competitive playing days and the wonderful people he has met on this fabulous journey.

      Truth be known, my clients came close to buying that course when it was for sale. It was the old Belleview Biltmore course. We nearly pulled the trigger. Later spent time looking at the Biltmore Hotel, that had fallen into extreme disrepair. Too much noise from the preservationists, we deemed it would be too long of a process. It finally sold and the developer did a nice job of keeping part of the old hotel and making it into a boutique hotel. The other buildings were crumbling….$400 million couldn’t restore it but the developer did really nice mid-rise carriage homes and the boutique hotel kept a big part of the lobby of the grand old hotel. A local family with huge dollars bought the Biltmore course and put waaaaaaay too much money into it. I may wander over there during a practice round but will catch most of it on the tube!
