Pacific Dunes #47 *Should have been higher?
I find it very hard to believe that Sand Hills would receive so low a score for Ambiance. Inverness, which jumped from #24 to #17 (Huge move up) received a 7.36. This doesn't seem to add up.Does anyone get this Tradition vs. Ambiance confussion?
John C:I am well aware of how "tradition" (the fudge factor) works. My point was a simple one -- on pure golf architecture ALONE Pac Dunes should easily be among the top 25 courses in the USA.
Let's be clear -- GD inserted the tradition and walking aspects (see Jerry Tarde's comments in the current issue) to introduce some aspect of "social engineering" into the process.I'm waiting for GD to start to include points for "best locker room, best practice area, best 19th hole -- yada, yada, yada." Isn't the focus suppose to be on the quality of the golf course architecture?
