  • • The concept is Bear's Best:

    A collection of golf courses showcasing great holes from such Nicklaus designs as PGA West, Muirfield Village, Castle Pines and Gleneagles in Scotland. Built to focus on the "corporate entertainment" needs associated with most conventions, corporate meetings and incentive programs, Bear's Best is the ultimate venue for golf events of any size. Of particular interest for a Bear's Best course are those major American cities that serve as hosts for large conferences and conventions, including Las Vegas, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Dallas and Orlando.
    Our philosophy is to provide each guest with a unique, fresh and memorable golf experience. The Bear's Best courses strive to bring a diverse yet consistent golf facility to meeting planners, incentive buyers, association planners and leisure travelers. Each Bear's Best course offers a different 18-hole selection by Jack Nicklaus from his more than 200 course designs open for play worldwide. But the differences end there, as the clubhouse and all related golf services meet the same high standards at each Bear's Best Golf Course. Like going to your favorite restaurant in a different city, you may enjoy different foods based on the part of the country but you retain that all important comfort level knowing you will receive consistency in the product and above all, impeccable service.

    Mathematics of Property Tax Example (Gwinnett):

    To determine the amount of your property taxes, several values are needed. These values are the Fair Market Value (FMV), Assessed Value (ASV), and the Millage Rate. The Millage Rate is defined as dollars per $1,000.00 of assessed value. For 2006, the Millage Rate for Gwinnett County has been set at $32.27 per $1000.00 or the decimal equivalent of .03227.

    Fair Market Value (F.M.V.) X 40% = Assessed Value

    Assessed Value X Millage = Tax

    Millage is usually expressed as dollars per $1,000.00 of Assessed Value

    Example: In 2006, Gwinnett County's millage rate is set at .03227. If your property has a FMV of $500,000, the ASV would be 40% or $200,000. Multiply the ASV of $200,000 by the millage rate of .03227 to determine your property taxes. In this example, property taxes would be $6,454.00
