I just pulled up the Golf Digest and Golf Magazine "Best in State" lists and Old Silo was still rated the #2 public in the state by both, trailing Dale Hollow in Golf Digest and Lassing Pointe in Golf. If the owners can't afford to maintain the golf course, I think it's a little harsh to throw around words like "despicable" and "cover-up" when they fail to update their website with the words "One of..."

Reading through Old Silo threads on this site reveals a course where ownership has probably tried harder to make things work than any other course in the state. They've reduced water and chemical inputs, and we've bitched about brown fairways. They've filled the bunkers with cheaper sand, and we've bitched that it isn't the pristine white stuff they had when they opened. They partnered with Greenbrier, and we shook our heads wondering what the hell Greenbrier was getting from the deal. They grassed bunkers over, and we bitched that they were getting rid of one of their defining features. Now they've abandoned the bunkers altogether as they slowly grass them over, and we're still bitching even though the green fees are $20 cheaper than they were ten years ago.

Personally, I doubt that ownership is deliberately trying to screw the public, nor do I believe that they're actively neglecting the course. They're just trying to run a business that was probably doomed from the beginning, and that is likely in its final throes.

It only took 17 years to get invited to play Idle Hour CC, so we're moving up in the world.

Until the lists catch up with their demise, I see no reason why they shouldn't tout any accolades they receive.

Courses (I can afford to play) always look better in pictures.

I can see you've been scared by The Falls.
