1953 U.S. Publinks was at West Seattle Golf Course, one of three municipal courses in Seattle. Seattle Golf Club is private, so it appeared to be a misprint.Charles Lund
I should have done better research. I guess that there are two!The Country Club of Buffalo hosted the USGA Open in 1912. In 1923, the club moved out to its present location, and the course was turned over to the city of Buffalo. The Grover Cleveland golf course hosted the USGA Public Links in 1926.Thanks to Jeff for dispelling my homer notion of the city of Good Neighbors as being the one and only.Quote from: Jeff Evagues on May 13, 2022, 11:53:45 PMQuote from: Ronald Montesano on May 13, 2022, 10:19:33 PMTrivia QuestionOnly course to host the USGA Open and the USGA Public Links is ...?Torry Pines South
Steve, I've been intrigued by Pecan Valley for years. A gentleman I met years ago played there often in the 50s/60s and spoke lovingly about it. (He was kind enough to gift me a logo hat to complete my birth year collection of majors venues).It's been mentioned here in the past, but only from a handful of posters that highlighted conditions and PV's neighborhood. Very few hole/routing details were offered. I got the feeling its closing wasn't met with a great deal of sadness.Hominy is an absolutely bear when the rough is grown and a very underrated course. Blue Heron has always been overrated in my opinion.
Played Rackham yesterday. It could have been a poster child for golf's revitalization during Covid. The place was jammed and humming with all ages, genders, ethnicities, and abilities.I felt good for golf.
Chris, You need to get outside the city limits... don't have to cross into Ohio, but there's lot more Ross around Detroit..
Chris,Cool,... ever list your Mich-Ohio Ross Trail in a thread? ps I get amused that sometimes folks along the freeways from Toledo to Ann Arbor to Flint claim to be Detroiters...
