What is the best way to find investors?

I know this is a pretty odd question, but I've dreamed of owning a golf course since I was a kid. The biggest problem - I don't have the 1.5 to 20 million dollars required to do so. I understand all the risks involved as well as all the hard word work needed to keep a golf course up to par (please excuse the pun). Anyway, I have experience in the fields of property maintenance and grounds keeping. So, with all that out of the way, what's the best way to find and convince investors? What kind of return would they be looking to receive? This isn't something I plan on doing overnight, but I would like to start planning now and then put the plan into action once I get my degree in Business Administration. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

The best way to find investors for your golf course would be to find a partner who can help with finance. This will give the business a chance to bring in some income which would attract investors. You could also visit commercial banks within your area of residence for a chance of getting loans.

Awesome! I should have my credit back to normal by the time I'm finished with school, so a loan would be a great idea. Thanks!

You must have a detailed business plan and then search for an investor matching service.

I've actually started working on a business plan (still needs a lot more work though), but do you know I'd go about finding an investor who invests into the field I'm choosing to go into? I mean, there isn't an actual company who just deals with golf courses or is there? Thanks

Its nice to dream big but have you thought about starting small like having a driving range only.

The best way to find investors is to show them that they will make a return on their investment. Also, business contacts who like you and want to do business with you are important.

Gotcha ... Do you know the best way to prove to them that there will be a return? Would a business plan be sufficient or would I need more information? Thanks!
