  1. I am excited to follow this renovation. And, at the risk of offending, glad to see the wrest of the Philadelphia munis from the grasp of Billy Casper Golf. We can see how well they did with FDR and Byrne. The latter of which has been taken over by First Tee as of November 2019, and has already begun some improvments.

  3. The comparison of Linfield to Twining in my mind was startling. IMO they are notably different. But u know what they say about the eyes of the beholders. All good.

Love the number of the courses on the "422 Stretch" as well. Linfield, Gilbertsville, etc
  5. I just started golfing again last season after a failed (with no lessons) attempt at it some 27 years ago. I was hitting publics and munis all season and through the winter last year. There was one course just around the corner from my house that went semi-private last season, had a ton of Groupon and Coupon offers to create awareness and offered a "10-pack pay and play." I played it at least 20 times last year. For some reason it charmed me - warts and all. It's an "Executive" golf course..whatever that means.
