Its a shame Thev had to dig up the course in the Middle of the it is a shame because Blair still has a lot to offer to golfers when it is not being dug up but sewers hold a certain amount of importance in life too. Anyway Poff says the Back nine is in pretty Good shape and although the greens could be better its All playable.
