Mike,
Thanks for sharing the article! I can't wait to play it after these changes.

If Green's work at USNA is anywhere near as good as what he did at Manasquan River it will be a home run.

Cool thing about that, is Andy used to work on the maintenance staff at Congo. Was there for the 1997 Open.


And I believe is doing the Congo renovation, following the club's decision not to proceed with Keith Foster.

Congrats to Admiral Mauz, USNA Golf Course, USNA Golf Team(s), AD Chet Gladchuck, Architect Andrew Green, and our old friend Uncle Bob Huntley who introduced many of us to the generosity of golf. I hope to play the "new" course in Annapolis this fall. The United States Naval Academy GC is now re-opened:

Well that is good news. I'll have to play it when I get back to Annapolis. I always liked the course.

Admiral Henry Mauz is one of the great men in golf--and outside of golf!  Former Academy golfer and later Commander of the Atlantic Fleet.  Others were involved in this effort to resurrect the Academy course, but Hank has been the driving force from Day 1!  Congratulations to all!

I hope to get there and the newly renovated bunkerless Eisenhower GC in August. I had played the Academy course dozens of times and always knew it could be special. Can’t wait to get there.

I am guessing a second course is a long shot, but "Uncle Chet" may have one more trick up his sleeve:


https://www.capitalgazette.com/news/ac-cn-greenbury-point-0511-20220511-rdmc35w6ofaoxdrgucunvrz6ke-story.html


Chet Gladchuk, president of Naval Academy Golf Association, said a golf course is just one element of the proposal the Naval Academy Golf Association submitted. Gladchuk also leads the academy’s Athletic Association. He said they don’t have a plan, but reached out to the Navy to see what it would support at Greenbury Point.

The restoration is really good as is the NEW UBER reverse redan.

Twenty some years ago there was a proposal at the academy to add nine holes in the same location. It could have been special. We’ll see what happens now but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Looks like the second course idea is on hold...at best

Why is there a need for a second golf course? Who would benefit the most from a golf course?  Who would benefit the most from a public access park?


Which would be less expensive to build/maintain?  As a golf course would the funding include ongoing golf course expenses after construction if it does not pay for itself?


Which is environmentally more sustainable?

Any project that is perceived to affect the Chesapeake Bay negatively is doomed. The project, like its predecessor some twenty-five years ago, never really had a chance. That area was part of my run when I ran at the Academy. It is a beautiful natural area.
Of course, it is possible to maintain a course without affecting the Bay. Pine Ridge GC north of Baltimore borders a reservoir. Conditions suffer a bit but it even hosted numerous LPGA events in the 70s.
