Chopz, it's a shame what happened to that course. And I know you and I have discussed it before. Right now we're just too busy to approach the City. But I will keep it on my list. Hang in there.

Mando,

That just depends on the job and what they want, and I'd treat it the same way whether it's wooded or open. Whenever cost of clearing is an issue, my decision-making has to take that...

Hi, Bob --

I'm going to give you another "it depends" answer. The important thing is to give the player the best information. If it's a one-shot hole, even if it requires a big sweeping curve, I...
