It’s an understatement to say Hagadone took an enormous risk by investing $60 million in what Forbes magazine seemed to be snickering about in its July 1986 cover story. “Duane Hagadone has built himself a fancy resort in the middle of nowhere. Why?” the headline asked. Well, welcome to the middle of somewhere, thanks to Hagadone, his partner, Jerry Jaeger, The Resort and its accompanying golf course.”
