If I gave it a 10, there wouldn't be any room to rate the composite course higher.

The courses might not be the best but the weather sure was.

- El Cid ( Mazatlan Mexico ) best caddies I've seen.
- Estrella Del Mar  ( Maz )
- Club Campestre  a neat local 9 hole course in Mazatlan
- Stadium Course ( La Quinta )
- Palmer Private
- Nicklaus Private
- Nick Resort
- Silver Rock
- Stone Eagle , really cool experience , that and Stadium are my two favorites there.
- Marine Drive ( Vancouver ) it's snowing here today!
Firm greens, firmer fairways.

Good point Terry.  The "science" behind rating golf courses does remind me a bit of Nigel's logic.

Nigel Tufnel: [about the back-stage buffet] Look, this. This miniture bread, it like... I've been working with this now for about half an hour and i can't figure out... let's say I wanted a bite, right. You got this...

Ian Faith: You'd like bigger bread?

Nigel Tufnel: Exactly. I don't under stand how...

Ian Faith: [gestures to the meat] You could just fold this... though.

Nigel Tufnel: [folding the bread] Well, no... then it's half the size...

Ian Faith: No, not the bread.
[folding the meat]

Ian Faith: You could fold the meat...

Nigel Tufnel: [still folding the bread] Yeah, but then it breaks up. It breaks apart like this...

Ian Faith: [putting the folded meat onto the miniture bread] No, no, no... you put it on the bread like this; see?

Nigel Tufnel: [folding the miniture sandwich] But if you keep folding it, then it keeps breaking...

Ian Faith: Why would you keep folding it?

Nigel Tufnel: ...and then everything has to be folded... and then you have
[holds up miniture sandwich]

Nigel Tufnel: ... this. And I don't want this. I want large bread, so I can put this...
[puts meat between two pieces of miniature bread]

Nigel Tufnel: ... so then it's like this. But this doesn't work, because then it's all...

Ian Faith: Because it hangs out like that?

Nigel Tufnel: Look! would you be holding this?

Ian Faith: No. I wouldn't want to eat...

Nigel Tufnel: No! Alright, A. Exhibit, exhibit A.
[throws down miniture sandwich]

Nigel Tufnel: And now we move onto this...
[picks up an olive]

Nigel Tufnel: Look, look; who's in here? No one.
[picks up an olive stuffed with pimento]

Nigel Tufnel: And in here, there's a little guy, look! So, it's a complete catastrophe!

Ian Faith: Alright, Nigel, Nigel... calm down...

Nigel Tufnel: Look... no, it's no big deal, It's a joke... it's really... it's a joke.

Ian Faith: I'm sorry, it's just some prat at university, you know? I really... I don't want it to affect your performance.

Nigel Tufnel: It's not going to affect my performance, don't worry about that. I just hate it... it really, it does disturb me, but i'll rise above it; I'm a professional.

Chris,

One of my worst putting performances ever, but I can't fault the greens, they were wonderful and so was the course.  Really underrated, definitely one of Northern Michigan's top courses.  Very unassuming trailer for a clubhouse, but nice people working there.  Pretty decent practice area.  The property is just magnificent for a golf course.  Golf holes don't get much better than the par-5 9th, in my opinion.  The shot into that heavily elevated, heavily bunkered green is an awesome thing.  My golf trip buddies were hit and miss on it, but I would play it every time I'm in the area.

No kidding, I have played 4 nice places this year, but the rest of my list is too lackadaisical to bother listing. How's Oak Meadow looking these days? I played Rollling Hills last week and they seem to have a Poa thing going on with their greens.

Happy to read the above.  My family was a member at Oak Meadow decades ago (mid 70's) when I think the nines were reversed and the pro shop was by the current 18th green.
