Has Frost Creek in Eagle, CO ever been mentioned?


Outstanding Weiskopf design in one of the most beautiful settings in the Rocky Mountains.

Ross Golf Club, Killarney Co. Kerry plays within and across the Killarney Races track. The turf of the track is not only an extension of the fairway, but also the thickest, most gnarly lie I can recall. It's a flat and otherwise unremarkable, yet inoffensive, nine-hole course that bends into some awkward contortions after it leaves the confines of the track infield on #4 before returning on #9.

Frisch Auf Valley, La Grange, TX is another nine hole course in a town better known for a ZZ Top lyric and a whorehouse. Central Texas, outside of the metro areas, is home to a lot of nine hole courses both on the public and private side. Most are straight forward, very basic golf, but Frisch Auf is one of the exceptions. The course plays into a shallow valley from the first tee, which sits alongside a small, half-timbered, German-inspired, clubhouse. There is some nice roll to the land, mature trees in appropriate places, nicely contoured greens, a blind shot, a few testy approaches, and real Vienna Beef Chicago Dogs in the clubhouse.

Did this course used to be called Adams Rib?  If so, I saw it during construction, with part of it grown in.  It was a really fun looking layout in an amazing setting.  I remember one of the holes, a par 5, I think, had a bunker in the middle of a green.

Their website says used to be Adam's Rib. And, search only gives Rich Goodale mentioning Adam's rib, but he was quoting Genesis.

Yes, that's the same.  Yes, there is still a bunker in the middle of the 3rd hole.  The place has changed owners once or twice, but it's on a pretty good trajectory now.

Louisiana has a lot of course that are less then good. Even Peter Dye said there is only so much you can do with a flat piece of land below sea level.

Not sure about never, but I don't recall seeing discussion of Suneagles in Monmouth County, NJ. An AW Tillinghast course, it was for many years the Army's course at Fort Monmouth and not available for outside play. It has been public since the Army base closed a number of years ago. Anyone played it recently?

Search returns mentions on 34 threads. A brief scan would indicate there are 4 threads dedicated to Suneagles. You may be familiar with one of the posters from the past. Someone named David Tepper. ;D

I played it about 7 years ago.  Here is a pretty decent photo album:

Palatka GC (Palatka, FL)  This course is so much fun and great land movement especially in Florida.  This is the 3rd hole below, one of many great holes.




Palatka!

 I have tried to sprinkle in lesser known good courses over the years so I canít answer this question but I will say the breadth and depth of Philadelphia second tier courses is awesome.
