    We're all getting older, my friend. Glad to hear they're doing well!

    Your brother got married, huh? Does that mean you're next? ;)

    Sorry about our miscommunication down in Tampa in April - hopefully we can do it again next year.

    I was member at Morningstar for 8 years. It's a fun course. You get used to playing away from the bunkers. I loved the place because of the roll you get in the fairways. Made me feel like a big hitter. I moved to a very different kind of course so my daughter could be a in junior program where her swing coach teaches. It's also way cheaper membership fees.

    How were the greens? Always the weakest part of the course. That's my daughter in my avatar hitting a shot on the 18th hole four years ago when she was 10.

    I thought the greens were in great condition, overall. Fast, but not slippery. Looked well-maintained. There were a few rough spots here and there, but nothing of any real concern.

    I kept sending marriage proposals to Mila Kunis, but she told me she'd send the Marines after me if I kept it up. Who to stalk next?

    Glad to hear it. They've had a lot of problems through the years. They can be really frustrating because they break about half as much as you think they will, and they never did hold well. The course was built in an old quarry, and there's a distinct lack of top soil under both the fairways and the greens. But with all the the elevation changes, its a fun place to play. Some really good holes there. #2 is nice dog leg par four. #5 is a great par 3, really tough from the back tees, I love the look of #13, the par four where you tee off way up on the hill.

    I miss it a lot. My new place is shorter, has more trees and water, and is harder hole for hole, (my 'cap went up 2 points), but it's often wet, and tee to green, the conditions are not as good.

    Glad you guys liked it.

    Kevin
