I've also wondered about how much work Ross actually did on my home course, Miami Shores GC in Troy, OH. Whatever he did must have come at the very end of his life since the course opened in the late 40s.
I guess either way, they redid the entire front nine in the 70s and the back nine in the 90s. It would be interesting to see what the place originally looked like.
83 from the back tees today. 44 on the front with 3 pars, 4 bogeys, and 2 double bogeys. Straightened it out with a 39 on the back with 2 birdies, 2 pars, and 5 bogeys.
The Bermuda rough is getting up there between 2 to 3.5 inches. It costs at least a stroke every time I'm in the rough, more if we can't find the ball.
I know, don't hit it there.
