They are really working hard on this course and it is turning into a real championship venue.  It played like it today and the decision to play off the white tees, which were well back, added to the difficulty.  Only Paul Smith handled it well with an excellent gross 75 (net 73) for 35 points, aided by birdies on the final three holes.  The next best score on the day was just 29 points.Gerry Cooney.last_img read more
