For those of you who have played Bryant Lake and Blue Ribbon Pines in Mpls., could you imagine that level of detail and attention applied to Water Works?
My brother in law and I had a chance to throw those courses and said the same thing. I know surrendering WW to become a pay to play would hurt a lot of feelings, but just imagine the possibilities. Walking up hole 6's fairway and there no erosion (grass!), or hole 5 where the run off creek is, that seems to breed Mosquitos, not being as grotesque after a good rain.
I love WW, and it being rated a top 20 course is super. So why change a good thing? Because, think of the possibilities.
Good luck to all throwing today on Independence Day. Be safe!
