The "grandaddy" may be getting a makeover. Big changes are in store for Pine Lakes Country Club, the oldest course on the Grand Strand. Burroughs and Chapin Co., owners of the course, are proposing to add about 400 housing units, as well as re-designing… more »

Get in and away from Orlando and Disney World at Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida

1 feedback »
I don't know about you, but whenever I'm in Orlando, I try to get out of Orlando. All those tourists whizzing down I-4 and International Drive make me nervous. A good place to stay, and still play the area's golf courses, with maybe a side trip to Disney… more »

PGA honors golf writers, but is it really journalism?

7 feedbacks »
I like awards, especially when I win one. Awards have their place, a way of honoring good work. But, some are more dubious than others. Ron Green, 76, just won one called the 2006 PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism. He will be presented with… more »

Dick Cheney needs to replace hunting with golf

39 feedbacks »
Vice-President Dick Cheney has always promised he'd shoot straight with the American people. He just didn't tell us it would be one at a time. Cheney needs to replace his hunting hobby with golf. Golf clubs aren't loaded, and it's more humane to bring… more »

Arron Oberholser at Pebble Beach: no sympathy for the underdog

4 feedbacks »
This is what happens when no-names win tournaments. A lopsided amount of media coverage of Sunday’s Pebble Beach Nationals Pro-Am centered on Mike Weir’s collapse rather than Arron Oberholser’s win. Oberholser knows how Weir feels. He had a chance… more »

Rose Hill Golf Club at Hilton Head closes

1 feedback »
I hope Hilton Head doesn't start suffering course losses like Myrtle Beach. Rose Hill Golf Club closed abruptly two weeks ago, and calls to its owners in Dallas were not returned. The future of the club, located in Bluffton, is still up in the air. It's… more »
