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

Here’s some semi-depressing news for all of us traveling golfers: we’re getting old. Or, maybe we’re just feeling guilty. In any event, “buddy trips” are down and family golf vacations are up. That’s the latest news from the 2006 PGA Merchand… more »

Slow play in golf: Should Tiger Woods speak out?

It normally irritates me when Europeans lecture us Americans about anything. But, a Scot named W. Eric Laing has some good things to say about the ridiculously slow pace of play in the U.S. "Slow play has become a universal curse in American golf and… more »
