Dan, Thanks for the link. Nice to have some reality to offset TEPaul's repeated snarky posts and references.
Go ahead and explain all that to Mike Cirba, who, in post 91, identified the courses in question as running to 1936, which is probably a pretty accurate date for when the WPA courses started to come online.
As for the opinion of this one guy, that would bring your total to two (which still does not many make), except for the fact that he certainly can't speak to any of the many courses built after 1925 and we have no idea where he had played before this, except for the few he mentions. Did he play on the West Coast? The Publinks didn't make it out there until 1933.
An aside. It is generally a good idea to take reports coming from New Yorkers about New York Municipal golf with a grain of salt during this era. They reportedly had a running battle going with the City about the quality and conditions of the NY munis. The courses reportedly ran at a surplus, but the money did not come back to the courses, even when the rates were jacked up to $10 dollars.
