Pretty much the same thing with the Earlewood Classic. Good course, good time of year (early March in South Carolina), well-run event, and a long-running tradition.

But you miss out on the thrill of trying to get in the tournament, which is often more exciting than the tournament itself!

At any rate, at least around here these are isolated tournaments, and...

Now, she's given neighboring Riverview an 0.5 (its overall rating is 3.64). It's not clean. This isn't just homerism; it's rivalry!

If you have a full field of 90 playing 4 rounds, that's 6,480 drives. If, on the subject course, no...

Assuming by ADA-compliant we mean wheelchair-accessible, a sand trap seems like a bad joke.
