Oh no! The greens at Carnoustie are hard and dry from drought. How long before the million dollar snowflakes demand someone change the weather and make the course perfectly the same throughout the day?

I doubt the R&A will be as dumb with their course setup as the USGA was.

Actually the the Americans, notably Tiger, are complaining that the greens at Carnoustie are too slow and the fairways are too hard; they are actually faster than the greens due to the dry weather. Some Par 4s that are well over 400 yards long are playing driver/wedge. Also the typical Open rough is not as full as usual and more "wispy" so players will not be penalized as much hitting errant shots off the fairway. The real defense at this time are the pot bunkers that dot the course. By the way so far this morning the course is playing easy with a lot of red on the leader board.

The big in-laws tourney is at Roses Run this year, probably the course I hate the most in NEO and for the 1st time in years dreading playing golf.

I have not played this course in a while but I hear the current conditions are only so/so for a resort course. If you have not played it before it is a "tricky" late out and make sure you know the lay of the land before striking a ball. Also it is a very tight tree lined course with a lot forced carries; sometimes it is best to leave the driver in the bag on certain holes.

It's like they built the houses then figured out how to run the holes through the back yards. Their course maintenance is awful too.

Speaking of course maintenance, I drove by Brandywine last week and there were weeds growing in the sand traps. Nice! On the up side, I drove by Mogadore which has been closed for three or four years and it doesn't look any different after having 3 or 4 years to grow over!

Myron and I ran into Mr. Angry at Life at the front desk a few years. It kind of soured us on the place.

As far as Brandywine, the front was decent, but the back makes Roses Run look like Augusta.

So while I played well and won the family event I still hate Roses Run. The only reason we ended up there is due to tee time availability; for a Saturday in July the parking lot was empty. Weird feel inside the clubhouse too as most of the lights were off in this huge building with only 1 lonely guy behind the bar working the turn. Really felt for the cart girl as it seemed she was only driving in circles with the few cheap golfers on the tract not buying anything. I could see them closing the course and turning it into a glorified walking path for the residents.

Did you get the ball into the clown's mouth and through the windmill on 12?

Actually parred that dopey hole, never took out a wood on a par 5.

Took a snowman though on 14. Hit a great drive that barely trickled into the left rough and it never stopped in the sloping browned out stuff until it ran down into the OB. For this tourney we play full on USGA rules so I had to go back to re-tee and start all over again. Got conservative and ended up in a green side bunker that was hard pan laying 5 and scalded it to the edge of the rough right up against the cattails that boarder the green, had no back swing so basically came right down on it and advanced it a few feet. Thankfully got up and down to notch that 8. Also those stupid short 90 degree dog legs are idiotic too, I get 1 a course but anything more than that is weak golf architecture.

Ahh, those dreaded snowmen. Thankfully, they don't come often.

One course in my area has one of these as the #1 hole. About two hundred and fifty yards along the roadway and then an abrupt left to an elevated green (the only saving grace for the hole). It's apparent the fairway ends at the property line (barbed wire fence). The rest of the course, owned and built by a local family-owned landscaping company, is okay. Hmmm...

A couple of years ago, the City of Stow, in analyzing what they could do with Fox Den, took offers. The owners of Roses Run proposed a straight up swap. As you might imagine, Stow was not interested. LOL.

Course was in great shape. The resort looked like a rundown motel 6, sad. But the course and the country club were very nice.

That was a great read about Roses Run, Auggie. Definitely a spot-on review of a place that had a lot of potential and has sure seen it’s better days. What kills me is all the parking available at that place. They ought to lease half of it to a Drivers Ed school, for maneuverability practice.

Ones, Omes Junior and I hit Little Mountain this morning. Third time for those guys, first time for me. A nice course, more reminiscent of Kensington than the Deer Ridge that I was expecting.

I was smoking through 15 holes, experienced regression to the mean on #16 & 17, due to my own incompetence, and then ran into one of the least par-able par 4s I’ve ever played (and I’ve played Whistling Straits, which has some brutal ones) in #18.

The drive from #14 to #15 was baffling (especially after a nice chat with a rather distracting cart girl), winding its way through a very affluent neighborhood before the golf course re-emerges.

Best part was that after four holes, the college sophomores who were playing in front of us let us play through. One had never played the game before, two others were “out for the first time this year,” and the one kid who actually had some game was probably Hamlin’s son. Kind of a tough course to a) break in to the sport with, and b) open one’s season with.

All three of us had real good stretches, with a couple bad holes thrown in, but a fun morning with 111111111114111111 and his youngster!

Another GREAT round with Myron and Male 11's. Thank God the young men let us through, or we might just be finishing up. Yes, we teed off at 8:40 and it is now 3:30.

Little Mountain is not a course for the weak of heart and there were plenty of traps and places to go OB. Our putting was a little questionable, as the greens were tough.

Yes, all three of us put together stretches of bad and good holes.

18 is probably the toughest public par 4 that you will see. I want to meet the long hitters that are putting for bird. I can't describe the hole, you will have to witness it for yourself.

Hopefully Myron and I, and 11's, can get out again before the leaves begin to fall.

Additionally, there was no sighting of Jimmy Hamlin, but the highlight of our day would've been a sighting of Elise Lobb, Holly Sonders, or Natalie Gulbis.

I have played LM a couple times and like it for the most part. The signature design element really is their very deep bunkers and how penal they are if you get in them. The houses are there but outside of the above mentioned borderline dangerous drive between holes 14 and 15 it's not Roses Run insane. My main complaint is lack of medium sized par 3s and 4s, they are either short or insanely long which means the mid irons stay in the bag for the most part. 18 has to be played like a par 4.5 as the carry for the second shot is usually well over 200 yards so most play it down the fairway as it really narrows from 100 yards in and hope for the best. The bunker complex is mostly for appearance as everyone is too chicken to try and hit a stiff wood over these daunting bunkers.

111411 gave his stiff wood a shot (That’s what she said...) over those bunkers...

(As I did with a short iron; neither, as you could guess, fared well)

18 is a big boy hole.

Tanglewood in Chagrin Falls tomorrow morning.

After tomorrow, until the season ends, I probably won't be playing outside of Sleepy Hollow much.

If you're in the Chagrin Falls area, try to play Tanglewood. If you like traps, some water, trees, and swamp areas, this course is for you. I really enjoyed playing, but keep your ball in the fairway and limit your mistakes, or you'll really pay. We got it for a senior rate of $29 online.

As we were at the lakehouse in Ashtabula County on Saturday, I decided to head to a place called Hemlock Springs. I was alone and went online for $14, including fees. I teed off at 2:30, following an outing and was joined by a young man that was walking. He only played 9 holes, then two twosomes let me play through. The course was pretty tight, but I played decently. They don't have the most friendly staff and you couldn't tell the fairway from the rough, but for $14 ......................

Back at Sleepy this morning and probably for the rest of the week, with a possible meeting with Myron sometime next week or the week after.

Tanglewood is an interesting course, not a bad track with some really cool holes that use the elevation change well but the current conditioning leaves a little to be desired. Location is a challenge too and many new to the course golfers find it hard to locate the clubhouse. Also the history is very colorful, it is no longer the "family" hang out that it once was and I am not talking the wife and kids type family either.

I think it was #17, the hole that has a busy road to the left and a creek running in front of the green.

One member of our group yanked his tee shot onto the road. There was a long line of cars coming up the road, and for the life of me, I don't know how he missed hitting one. Of course the other members of the group, myself included, thought it was hilarious.
