High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - June 27, 1976, High Point, North Carolina I Hick hotel intr sprur sunday 3mm 27. »7� Golf notebook in him of Nothe Irater Greensboro open Hen a new Home and he tournament now has Tome new questions at the top of the list is How Tough it Forest Oaks the answer to that is simple it can be As Tough As those in charge of course preparation want it to be. The length it can play to some 7.000 Yards for the go i and the numerous Sand traps wont be that much of a problem to the touring pros they see it every week snarling rough though could turn the tight driving holes into Stem tests Quot we re thinking about four Inch rough one member of the sponsoring Greensboro Jaycees noted Quot wed like to see the winning score eight or nine under instead of 15 or 16 Quot four inches is . Open stuff and the scores go higher in equal proportion to the grass another question about Forest Oaks is will it draw the same support As the tournament did when at Sedge Leldo a there s no real reason to assume the thundering herds won t flock to Ogo 77 As they have since Ogo no i after All. It s still the Only pro Golf show in town however the Access to Forest Oaks Hwy 421 raises another question How crowded will traffic conditions be Hwy 421 is the Only Way in to the course and when 50 too people decide to use the same Road at once Well traffic control will have its hands full parking Wise. Forest Oaks is much better suited for a tour event than Sedgefield. And from the news Media standpoint anything in the Way of a working facility would be better than in years past the Only other question of any consequence is How the players will react to the switch Quot i think they re making a mistake Quot one pro. Who asked to remain Anonymous noted when asked the question at the recent open Quot for one thing a change to a tougher Golf course in t going to attract any More pros than it does now unless there s also a change in dates even then i doubt if the Field would be that much different and it May cause some players who have been coming every year to change their mind of they trick up the course they la find some of the regulars skipping it ifs no fun to shoot 78 s and the galleries won t care too much about watching those kind of scores either of course Money was a major reason the Jaycees made the switch in the Best manner of the godfather. Forest Oaks made pm an offer the Jaycees could t refuse you can t blame them for making the switch and it s Only fair to give them a couple of years to sort out any problems that the move might create Quot i Don t think it la affect the tournament All that another pro offered Quot it s a Community so it Norod tournament and. As far As i m concerned one of the Best stops on the tour we always get outstanding treatment at Greensboro and i Don t see any reason that would change i Don t know anything about he new course i be never played it. But i m not real unhappy about the move at Sedgefield it usually came Down to a putting contest Quot Forest Oaks has no one Quot killer Quot Hole like the 16th at Sedgefield. The Par 3s Aren i spectacular As a whole but the Par 5s won t by Driver ii Iron either Overall Forest Oaks probably rates As a tougher test of Golf it remains to be seen if it will develop the magnetism that Sedgefield had Sedgefield was Good for the goo. It probably made the tournament when the event Lound a Home there in that respect it won t be the same nest year when the pros tee it up at Forest Oaks still along with the switch comes a certain freshness about the tournament that in itself can be an asset Kernersville r j Reynolds made quite a Day of it recently after the final round of the Enterprise classic Reynolds competed in the last round at Oak hollow then went to deep River for a few More holes an Ace on the loth Hole with a 6-Iron made it All Worth it. Reynolds who shot 40 on the Back nine after a 44 on the front was playing in a threesome with t m Shaw and Mcgee High Point s Dick Frith captured the Myrtle Beach chamber of Commerce a Hole in one award recently Frith nailed a 6 Iron into the cup on the seventh Hole of the Palmetto course at Myrtlewood Golf club the Hole measures 155 Yards also in the foursome were Vann Williford.
