Just finished your (Nov-dec.)
issue of troon Golf and travel
and wanted to relate how much
I enjoyed it. having played many
troon Courses (I keep going back
to Kierland) I can always count on
a first-rate experience. Your production is in the same category.
after reading your article about
waterColor I am definitely going
to check it out. thanks for a good
read and I am looking forward to
the next issue.
(in response to our article, “Under
Par Cigar,” in the Nov.-Dec. 2010
I am very much in favor of letting
other people do what they want,

golfers should choose what tees
they hit from? This article from
