Sorry Jeff, I knew you'd be disappointed in me but as it was I was rushing to make the ferry from Orient Point. The thought crossed my mind but I figured I needed to give myself a good reason to get back out to East Long Island...

I did finally meet David Davis when he came to a little private dinner we were having at the delightful Links Club in Manhatten.

I've stopped telling Mrs C I'm off on the "trip of a lifetime" as I've done too many now!

Honestly Mr. Smith, with all due respect, you must think the Mrs. is reading this to check up on you. There is NO-ONE on this site that believes that. Nice try though...

Judge,

   I really enjoyed Kingsley and was fortunate to have played three rounds there a few weeks back. Of that list, it was the one I'd never played before. Each round was progressively revealing and enjoyable. It's a sporty course I could happily play multiple times in variable conditions and likely not tire of.

    That said, I've been lucky and fortunate enough to have played many other courses that heartily compete with a place like Kingsley and probably just nudge it out of my Top 50. CrystalDowns, however, would easily fit well inside my Top 30.

I haven't made it up to Kingsley, not for lack of invitation, but I was legitimately curious if it would squeeze in your Top 50, knowing that you've played a lot of great golf courses.  Sorry if Jones feels tweaked.  Not my intent.  I'm sure that Kingsley will make my Top 50, as long as I get there before I do the New York/Long Island/Philly combo platter I've been fantasizing about!

I noticed a couple Friar's Head mentions in here--what're people's thoughts on FH?  How does it compare to the rest of the LI courses?

No feelings of tweak.  I'm just trying to get you to avail yourself to the facts and the law before you make your ruling!

Mr. Lewis and I cordially invite you to northern Michigan (again) for fact finding and oral arguments.

Brian...

Sand Ridge was a gorgeous place to play golf.  It lacked a bit of strategy until some of the later holes...but even then it wasn't an epic type of golfing experience where you had to think prior to hitting every shot.  It is a nice place to play and makes for an enjoyable day.  I think that lovers of strategic golf courses might not care for it.  But, if your love the relaxing round in a great setting...you'll love Sand Ridge.

You played it?  What do you think?
