[At least Tom MacWood realized he reached his Waterloo with his ridiculous and now disproven claims that the course wasn't extremely well-regarded back them and wisely knew enough to keep silent, but that didn't stop David from his usual verbal diarrhea, self-appointed expert posturing, and nonsensical blathering at the mouth, sandwiched between his now habitual Turrets like string of childlike personal insults that lack both humor and insight..
Typical "Fool Me Once" Cirba. When he doesn't like where the thread is going he throws a little hissy fit, even messing with the title of the thread. It's the gca.com equivalent of kicking over the gameboard or trying to take his ball and go home.

Quote from: Sean Arble on July 08, 2010, 05:00:22 PMI can point to Rackham as an example. Yes, it hosted a Publinx, but I would be wholly surprsied if it was considered a top 7 course in Metro Detroit in 1930 and there weren't 7 really good courses in Detroit in 1930. Ciao I'm not sure what the number of good golf courses in Detroit has to do with the list considering there is only one course from Detroit on the list, but I would dispute your comment about the number of quality courses in Detroit in 1930: CC of Detroit, Indianwood, Detroit GC N&S, Oakland Hills N&S, Franklin Hills, Plum Hollow, Aviation, and Colony. That is ten and I think there may have been a few more.

I've added Lawsonia, and it has to be one of the top courses on this list. Lawsonia began as an exclusive real estate development and private club in 1927, but by the time the course was formally opened in May 1930 that plan was out the window. It was a daily fee golf course and remained so at least through the early 50s.

Tom,If you and David want to share this room together privately, I guess that doesn't really concern me.After all, you might as well continue to work in tandem to derail anything you don't agree with, and why should you start respecting the wishes, requests, and opinions of others now?I also have to say that you two are a perfectly matched pair and sort of a cute couple the way you finish each other's sentences.Just clean up after yourselves and turn the lights off once you've both finished.
