MacWood:Opa Locha golf course was part of a "concept" community known as Opa Locka that Glen Hammond Curtiss, the aviation pioneer, created (both the course and the town/community). It became a town in Florida. The golf course was part of a community course and may not have been open to play other than residents of Opa Locka. As such it probably should not be considered a public golf course. You or any other researcher should probably take the time and make the effort to find out about these historic ramifications and distinctions rather than depending on a single word in some golf course listing publication as apparently you just did above? To suss out the accurate historical details of some of these courses one needs to be a bit more research detail oriented than apparenly you are!I've said it perhaps 25 times on this website, but you are pretty good at coming up with all kinds of trivial and extraneous research material (it appears you seem to think that alone makes you a good researcher/historian ) but you have unfortunately been a virtual disaster at analyzing and figuring out what it really means!
Well, alright, Moriarty, I will give you the fact Opa Locka could've been legitimately considered a municipal golf course given the fact Glen Hammond Curtiss created the entire MUNICIPALITY of OPA LOCKA (community and municipality of Opa Locka and the golf course) as a "concept community"! But did that mean the course was open to all public play other than those living in Opa Locka?If that fits into your petty, trivial and no-count argumentations on this particular thread, then go for it! After-all, that's about all you've ever been good for on this website.
Moriarty, the very last thing I ever need to do is even attempt to justify myself or what I do or have done in golf or what I know about golf and golf course architecture, golf administration or frankly anything connected to golf and its history to some insecure little argumentative light-weight nitwit like you!If you don't understand that or don't think it's true, then let me ask you what in the world have you ever done for a golfer or golfers, or a golf club, golf architectural research, analysis or writing or anything else of the kind?Don't use this website as your ridiculuous little platform to do whatever the hell it is you think you are doing or can do on here in your petulant attempts to criticize people like me. Get into the real world of golf and when you do just ask around who I am and where I've been and what I know----that is if you even EVER have the vaguest idea who to ask, which frankly I doubt!
What I am talking about Moriarty has nothing whatsover to do with your trivial, inconsequential ramblings on that last post of yours. Read your previous one a bit more carefully, if you're capable and you may get some glimmer of what my last post was all about.But do not let me disabuse you in any way whatsoever! My interest and intention on this website and elsewhere, at this point, and until convinced otherwise, and due to your constant insults to me, my friends here and by implication my city and its golf architectural history, is to limit and minimize your credibility with and about golf course architecture wherever and whenever and to whom ever I can! And if that impacts negatively what you seem most concerned about----your reputation----let me assure you that is precisely what I intend to do at any time and in any way and with anyone I can.You deserve it, and not only in my opinion but in the opinions of many both within and without this website, and you continue to prove you deserve it by just about every post you make on here to everyone and particularly those from this city.
Thankfully the only fact (or in your bizarre terminology "PHACT" or "PHUCKING PHACT") you have ever ACTUALLY enlightened me on is that Wilson went abroad in 1912.That was an interesting one indeed if one's into trivia, but unfortunately for you, what you tried to USE that inconsequential fact to construe you were both caught at and roundly embarrassed for in the greater world of sophisticated golf architectural interest and understanding. It seems that is a blunder we caught you up on you will never get over. I can't say I blame you really, knowing you on here, as I do!
