Mando, I'm afraid the news isn't good news. Frost Valley lost some staff and took on some major new projects, so they made very little progress on the course during the last year. They assure me...

I fully expect you guys to play the 4-5 hole several times next year and provide a detailed analysis. I think you'd need something to give players more incentive to be close to the water. A big...

Adam, it was great to meet you. Again, wish we'd had more time. That would be my one suggestion for next time -- set aside a few hours for more open discussions, so that we can all talk over ideas.
