The limited amount of play can be attributed to the lack of irrigation and the need for the fire truck in the picture. But when its open getting on isn't much of a feat at all.

Evan,It's OK. JB got a little pissy with someone else's picture too, without posting one of his own for us to critique.
Evan--My point was about the sheep ranch. Your post helped me make that point. I would argue that it is the single most misunderstood piece of property in golf. My profile was deleted once in 'fanasty football-gate', so I've been here for awhile, and to the sheep ranch countless times more then you I'm sure....
NoAlso from Buda Cup IV... dubbed "The Long and the Short Of It." Jim Goby (Short) and Tony Muldoon (Long) prove that golf is a game for one and all!
I have never been there, but this image has to be about my favorite.IMO the range of light is outstanding in this picture, so much so I think Ansel Adams would be proud of it. The composition is wonderful too, with the green placed in ideal position as the bunker on the left leads you right into it.Ran doesn't give credit to the photographer in the review, so I have to assume he shot the pictures himself, and did a wonderful job too.Garland, Ran takes credit for everything. According to Paul Daley, Ken Bakst took all those lovely black and white photos. Ken verified that and modestly added, (and I loosely paraphrase from memory) "anyone can take photos like that with a nice camera and plenty of opportunities" when I asked him. I LOVE those photos as well. He has a talent and great taste.Josh
