Tip Of The Cap To Lancaster CC For Hosting AJGA TOC…

After seeing what it meant to the kids to play LA Country Club earlier this year in the Pac-12's I've vowed to acknowledge the great old designs that open their doors to amatetournaments.

So this week a special tip of the cap to Lancaster Country Club for opening the doors to the AJGA Rolex Tournament of Champions, which has a long list of prestigious winners. And also a great chance for the kids to have their first Amish encounter.

Ran Morrissett posted a nice review of the course in 2009.

Horse n buggy parking is just weird looking.

Venture past the occasional L.A. Country Club and Lancaster, and the venues for the AJGA quickly go downhill. The schedule is littered with places like Innisbrook, Ohio State, Grayhawk, The Woodlands CC, Boyne Highlands, Horseshoe Bay, Huntingdon Valley, TPC Sawgrass. Sedgefield CC, Trump International/Puerto Rico, etc. If the youngsters are to have an experience they'll remember by the time to get to college and can tell their friends about without feeling shame, better venues need to start taking the padlocks off the gates.

Steven T. -- I was being sarcastic. The op seemed to be implying that Lancaster and LACC are gems amid a sea of dog tracks. All of the courses I named are excellent. Certainly outstanding for any field of junior golfers.
