Bummer about Mare. Strangely enough, a lot of the smaller, older courses around here still do well.

Lag,
You've written too much to respond to, especially since I'm on my phone right now. Might type some thoughts tomorrow.
Cheers all

My annual rant is usually around Masters time. Sometimes the US Open.
I rarely watch any golf these days. Just bores me to sleep. Long drives missing fairways, then wedges on every par 4 from light rough.
I'd rather watch paint dry.

Mare looks it might be kinda fun. Don't know a whole lot about it but this picture reminds me of some of the newer ballparks built with an old-school flair which shows some skyline in the background. Sad to hear about maybe closing it down. What's this picture showing, a downhill par 3 from an elevated tee, or just an elevated look at a different hole's green?

Pretty much what I always felt regarding the move from hickory to steel. As far as distance, not much.
These guys were hitting hickory about the same distance as steel.

The steel shafts enabled players to get into a set of clubs that were more consistent in shaft flex which aided accuracy.
it didn't change the game significantly or require that courses be completely revamped etc.
