What?!?! No Dyker For You, Sweeney??You really need to get out more.
What's the nearest course to you which you haven't played?Two categories:Public - American Golf Club of Vero Beach - 2.6 miPrivate - Riomar Country Club - 2.7 miApproximately where do you live? Vero Beach, FLWhy? American GC - Because I'd always heard it's horrible and constantly on the edge of shutting down, so I mostly play at Sandridge, the county facility. That said, recent reviews of AGC that I've found online indicate that new ownership is turning things around, so I may check it out sometime soon.Riomar - Have not been invited to play it.Who designed it? American GC - Arthur Hills, evidentlyRiomar - First nine were Herbert Strong, not sure re: second nine; recent work initially proposed by Ron Forse but carried out by Tommy FazioWhat would the answer be if you played it your next round? If I played AGC, the closest public I hadn't seen would be Island Pines (7 mi), another lower-end public I just haven't gone to play, designed by Arthur Young (never heard of him).If I played Riomar, the closest private I hadn't seen would be Indian River Club (6 mi), a Ron Garl course. Will probably play here in 2017; I think my local FL Am qualifier is there.What's stopping you? Re: AGC and Island Pines, probably an inner golf-snobbishness that I need to continue to get rid of.Re: the privates, just opportunity/invites.
