Feldberg said much the same thing after practicing for RFDO. I'm not surprised about the Rochester part, but I expected that others would take care of their parks equally well. Good for us.

Ditto Deer Lakes, Knob Hill, and Waterworks. It takes the combination of elevation changes, tall-old trees, and length. You can have a really good course with one or two, but you need all three to make a great course. The best land for this kind of top tier course is already in established parks and is owned by the towns/county/state. The better the land-the less likely it is to get the right DG course in though.
Just think of how awesome Mendon Ponds could be if the right people were on board.
I love the temp course that we use for doubles finals...that's the idea. Hopefully we will be able to turn our goodwill with the County Parks People into our best course yet.
And don't forget The Apple Farm will be a destination some day with two solid courses and awesome 'coutry club' extras. Spartan is already a good course and I'm definitely looking forward to what Empire is going to become.
