Odbijanje zajedničke mudrosti da napravi 225 USD Teksaško vino

Odbijanje zajedničke mudrosti da napravi 225 USD Teksaško vino

On vjeruje da je tradicionalni pogled na „terroir“ - skup ekoloških faktora za koje se vjeruje da utječu na karakteristike grožđa, pa tako i na vino od njega - u popularnoj preši za vino „na posljednjim nogama“. Rekao je da njegova odbrana više počiva na privatnim interesima nego na zdravoj nauci. Ne očekuje da će umrijeti bez ogorčene borbe, ali očekuje da će istina na kraju prevladati.

Revizionist teroara je Dan Gatlin, vlasnik, vinogradar i vinar Inwood Estate Vineyards u Fredericksburgu u Teksasu. Ne očekujući da će ljudi vjerovati nekome ko samo govori, on je također prošetao - posljednji put u obliku dva primjera chardonnay od grožđa iz dva vinograda u okrugu Dallas. Njegovi chardonnayi iz okruga Dallas iz 2014. i grad Dallas iz 2014. elegantni su enološki gotovo doppelgängeri za premier cru Chablis - uprkos tome što se proizvodi od grožđa uzgojenog u klimi od 6000 stepeni dana (termalne jedinice mjere akumulaciju topline, koriste se za predviđanje stope razvoja biljaka) u odnosu na 2.200 u regiji Chablis.

Ovo nije izoliran primjer. U 2002. dva nova cabernet sauvignon klonovi iz Francuske, za koje se govorilo da su superiornog karaktera, došli su u SAD. Za to je trebalo oko 10 godina Kalifornijski univerzitet u Davisu'Foundation Foundation Services, američko središte za uvoz vinove loze, kako bi ih certificiralo kao bez bolesti. Nakon toga, izvorni materijal pušten je u rasadnike, a Inwood je imao sreće da dobije nešto vinove loze 2014. Posadili su ih u blizini Fredericksburga, Texas Hill Country AVA.

2015. dobili su samo mrvicu voća iz ovih blokova, ali on nije bio razočaran u to. On kaže: „S vremenom ću objaviti detaljnije informacije o ovom djelu, ali za sada mogu reći da je razlika u DNK različitih mutacija ili klonova toliko dramatična da je teško povjerovati da su iste sorte . To smo već primijetili s cabernetom Clone 4 u Vinograd u Firenci, i to je revolucioniralo način na koji smo razmišljali o gotovo svemu što smo ranije radili ”.

Ko je ovaj 35-godišnji veteran vinogradarstva i enologije i šta ga inspiriše da na svoju mailing listu pošalje književne traktate koji se bore protiv statusa quo, u tradiciji pamfleta devetnaestog veka? Nedavno sam sjeo s njim kako bih saznao više.

Ali prvo, malo pozadine. Slučajno sam otkrio Inwood Estates Vineyards. Dok sam pohađao a Bordeaux na degustaciji vina u vinoteci u Dallasu u kasnim večernjim satima, prijatelj me je praktično oteo, strpavši me u zadnji dio svog SUV -a, insistirajući da moram nešto probati. Nakon kratke vožnje od jedne milje, stali smo u neurednu poslovnu jedinicu na industrijskom imanju. Odveo me je do šaltera za degustaciju. Tamo sam dobio dvije čaše. Jedan je bio ispunjen 100-postotnim Corneliusom Inwood Estates Vineyards 2005 tempranillo napravljeno od grožđa uzgajanog u Newsom Vineyards u Texas High Plains, drugi 2003 Bodegas Muga Rezervacija od Legendarna španska regija Rioja.

Svako sam njušio, i kušao, i bio sam, kako kažu, oduševljen. Dok je pokazivao stilske razlike (više zrelosti za jednog), Inwood je stajao prst do pete sa Mugom u jasnoći izraza voća, strukturi, intenzitetu, pa čak i finoći. Ovo je bila uvjerljiva demonstracija proizvoda koju je trebalo dati degustatorima koji su priznali činjenice, a ne samo pili etikete.


Doyle se na seniorskoj turneji pretvorio u pravog svingera

Kada Allen Doyle stigne u seoski klub Newport Beach za Toshiba Senior Classic 2-4. Marta, garantuje da ima najmanje tri stavke u rukama: ljuljački zamah, odbranu šampionskog statusa i veliku zahvalnost za to koliko je daleko stigao.

Neortodoksni zamah nastaje učenjem golfa u podrumu s niskim stropom. Status branioca titule dolazi kao rezultat pet ptica na posljednjih osam rupa na prošlogodišnjem turniru. Cijenjenje je duga priča.

Doyle (52) je upravnik poligona koji živi u LaGrangeu u državi Ga. Iskusni amater, odlučio je ostaviti život profesionalnom turneji kako bi ostao sa svojom porodicom. Vođenje poligona ga nije obogatilo, ali je platilo račune i omogućilo mu da gleda kako njegove dvije kćeri odrastaju.

Postao je profesionalac kada su njegove kćeri ušle na fakultet, ali osam profesionalnih pobjeda i skoro 4 miliona dolara zarade u karijeri nisu promijenili njegov mentalitet u malom gradu. I dalje se čudi tretmanu koji ima kada svira na seniorskom PGA Tour događaju.

"Za momka poput mene, znate, to pogađa možda malo više nego sa momcima koji su ovo radili cijeli život", rekao je Doyle.

„Dođete na mjesto gdje vas pokupe na aerodromu i kad dođete ovdje dobijete ljubazni automobil i gotovo ne možete učiniti ništa za sebe, a to je, znate, zgodna stvar. Mislim da to još više cijenim zbog puta kojim sam došao da dođem. ”

Kada je Doyle prvi put pogodio profesionalni krug, većini posmatrača se nisu svidjele njegove šanse zbog skraćenog naginjanja unatrag i prodora. To je ista priča koju je čuo otkad je usavršio zamah nakon što je hokejaška sezona završena u Novoj Engleskoj, gdje je odrastao.

"Kad sam tek počeo igrati na državnom nivou, nekako su vam se nasmijali", rekao je Doyle. “Kad ste ih pobijedili, brzo su naučili da možete igrati. Kada ste prešli na nacionalni nivo, oni su učinili istu stvar. Uradili su to i na profesionalnom krugu. Siguran sam da su rekli. . . jedna je stvar raditi dobro kao amater, ali taj zamah ovdje neće izdržati. Pretpostavljam da jeste. ”

Godine 1994., prve godine kao profesionalac, Doyle je tri puta pobijedio na Buy.com Tour -u, ranije Nike Tour -u. Bio je najstariji novajlija u istoriji PGA turneje 1996. godine i igrao je naredne dvije sezone na toj turneji, zaradivši nešto više od 200.000 dolara. Godine 1998. bio je osvajač medalja u kvalifikacionoj školi Senior PGA Tour.

Završio je treći na novčanoj listi Senior Tour 1999. godine sa 1.911.640 dolara i četiri pobjede. Prošle godine bio je sedmi na novčanoj listi sa 1.505.471 dolara, iako je rekao da je igrao bolje nego prethodne godine.

Nije loše za tipa koji je imao ljude koji su pokušavali promijeniti zamah svuda gdje je išao. Doyleu nije bilo teško shvatiti čiji savjet poslušati. Sjećao se samo mudrosti koju je dao stručnjak na golf terenu gdje je Doyle radio kao tinejdžer.

"Rekao je:" Nikada ne slušajte savjete od nekoga ko vas ne može pobijediti ", rekao je Doyle. "To je po meni imalo smisla."

Ono što Doyle i dalje smatra malo zbunjujućim je to koliko je brzo uspjeh došao. Njegova profesionalna karijera započela je izuzećem sponzora za Nike Tour događaj. Tamo je završio dovoljno visoko da bi ušao u sljedeći događaj koji je osvojio.

Nakon toga, bio je izuzet na Nike Tour -u, završio je drugi na listi novca i sljedeće godine je stigao na PGA Tour.

"Da se osvrnem četiri godine kasnije i imam četiri miliona dolara zarade u karijeri, da, možda bih bio malo iznenađen", rekao je Doyle. "Ali uvijek sam bio dovoljno glup da mislim da bih se mogao takmičiti ako vježbam dovoljno i dobijem prave pauze."

I dovoljno je pametan da cijeni sve to sada kada je uspio. Doyle i dalje posjeduje i upravlja poligonom, još uvijek tamo vježba-i to nije sve.

"Ja sam jedini tamo ujutro, pa ako se javim na telefon, to ću biti ja", rekao je.

Doyle je rekao da snaga staze u Newport Beach Country Clubu ima mnogo veze sa konstantno jakim terenima na Senior Classic -u.

Ova godina neće biti izuzetak. Rane obaveze su već primljene od 54 igrača, uključujući Toma Watsona, Larryja Nelsona, Garyja McCorda, Toma Kitea, Brucea Fleishera, Davea Stocktona, Lannyja Wadkinsa i Chi Chi Rodrigueza.

Očekuje se da će se obvezati Lee Trevino, Gil Morgan i Doug Tewell. Organizatori kažu da očekuju Hale Irwin, ali njegov raspored nije siguran jer njegova kćerka očekuje dijete.

"Ne iznenađuje me jer su vjerovatno svi čuli da je to bio dobar kurs", rekao je Doyle. “Dobri igrači žele dobra golf igrališta. Frustrirajuće je otići negdje i pucati 14 ispod i završiti izjednačeno za sedmo. ”

Potraga se nastavlja za novim generalnim direktorom u Tijeras Creeku, ali je privremeni GM Doc Belitz smanjio naknade za vikend za vikend sa 125 USD na 115 USD.

Cijelodnevna stopa igranja od 125 USD radnim danom je prekinuta, a stope sumraka smanjene su na 60 USD svaki dan, sa 90 USD vikendom. Stope sumraka počinju pet sati prije zalaska sunca.

Mašina za gađanje loptica na poligonu je takođe ugašena. Igrači će sada dobiti profesionalne loptice iz profesionalne trgovine.

Kada je Doyle prvi put pogodio profesionalni krug, većini posmatrača se nisu svidjele njegove šanse zbog skraćenog naginjanja unatrag i prodora. To je ista priča koju je čuo otkad je usavršio zamah nakon što je hokejaška sezona završena u Novoj Engleskoj, gdje je odrastao.

"Kad sam tek počeo igrati na državnom nivou, nekako su vam se nasmijali", rekao je Doyle. “Kad ste ih pobijedili, brzo su naučili da možete igrati. Kada ste prešli na nacionalni nivo, oni su učinili istu stvar. Uradili su to i na profesionalnom krugu. Siguran sam da su rekli. . . jedna je stvar raditi dobro kao amater, ali taj zamah ovdje neće izdržati. Pretpostavljam da jeste. ”

Godine 1994., prve godine kao profesionalac, Doyle je tri puta pobijedio na Buy.com Tour -u, ranije Nike Tour -u. Bio je najstariji novajlija u istoriji PGA turneje 1996. godine i igrao je naredne dvije sezone na toj turneji, zaradivši nešto više od 200.000 dolara. Godine 1998. bio je osvajač medalja u kvalifikacionoj školi Senior PGA Tour.

Završio je treći na novčanoj listi Senior Tour 1999. godine sa 1.911.640 dolara i četiri pobjede. Prošle godine bio je sedmi na novčanoj listi sa 1.505.471 dolara, iako je rekao da je igrao bolje nego prethodne godine.

Nije loše za tipa koji je imao ljude koji su pokušavali promijeniti zamah svuda gdje je išao. Doyleu nije bilo teško shvatiti čiji savjet poslušati. Sjećao se samo mudrosti koju je dao stručnjak na golf terenu gdje je Doyle radio kao tinejdžer.

"Rekao je:" Nikada ne slušajte savjete od nekoga ko vas ne može pobijediti ", rekao je Doyle. "To je po meni imalo smisla."

Ono što Doyle i dalje smatra malo zbunjujućim je to koliko je brzo uspjeh došao. Njegova profesionalna karijera započela je izuzećem sponzora za Nike Tour događaj. Tamo je završio dovoljno visoko da bi ušao u sljedeći događaj koji je osvojio.

Nakon toga, bio je izuzet na Nike Tour -u, završio je drugi na listi novca i sljedeće godine je stigao na PGA Tour.

"Da se osvrnem četiri godine kasnije i imam četiri miliona dolara zarade u karijeri, da, možda bih bio malo iznenađen", rekao je Doyle. "Ali uvijek sam bio dovoljno glup da mislim da bih se mogao takmičiti ako vježbam dovoljno i dobijem prave pauze."

I dovoljno je pametan da cijeni sve to sada kada je uspio. Doyle i dalje posjeduje i upravlja poligonom, još uvijek tamo vježba-i to nije sve.

"Ja sam jedini tamo ujutro, pa ako se javim na telefon, to ću biti ja", rekao je.

Doyle je rekao da snaga staze u Newport Beach Country Clubu ima mnogo veze sa konstantno jakim terenima na Senior Classic -u.

Ova godina neće biti izuzetak. Rane obaveze su već primljene od 54 igrača, uključujući Toma Watsona, Larryja Nelsona, Garyja McCorda, Toma Kitea, Brucea Fleishera, Davea Stocktona, Lannyja Wadkinsa i Chi Chi Rodrigueza.

Očekuje se da će se obvezati Lee Trevino, Gil Morgan i Doug Tewell. Organizatori kažu da očekuju Hale Irwin, ali njegov raspored nije siguran jer njegova kćerka očekuje dijete.

"Ne iznenađuje me jer su vjerovatno svi čuli da je to bio dobar kurs", rekao je Doyle. “Dobri igrači žele dobra golf igrališta. Frustrirajuće je otići negdje i pucati 14 ispod i završiti izjednačeno za sedmo. ”

CityofGolf.com, sa sjedištem u Huntington Beachu, najavio je u srijedu službeno pokretanje svoje web stranice.

Stranica nudi vijesti o golfu, upute, kvizove o pravilima, vodič za golf i praćenje hendikepa u interaktivnom formatu. Tu su i sobe za razgovor i opsežan odjeljak o Tiger Woodsu, uključujući video zapise. Prijavite se za besplatno članstvo i račun e-pošte je uključen.

Potraga se nastavlja za novim generalnim direktorom u Tijeras Creeku, ali je privremeni GM Doc Belitz smanjio naknade za vikend za vikend sa 125 USD na 115 USD.

Cijelodnevna stopa igranja od 125 USD radnim danom je prekinuta, a stope sumraka smanjene su na 60 USD svaki dan, sa 90 USD vikendom. Stope sumraka počinju pet sati prije zalaska sunca.

Mašina za gađanje loptica na poligonu je takođe ugašena. Igrači će sada dobiti profesionalne loptice iz profesionalne trgovine.

Doyle se na seniorskoj turneji pretvorio u pravog svingera

Kada Allen Doyle stigne u seoski klub Newport Beach za Toshiba Senior Classic 2-4. Marta, garantuje da ima najmanje tri stavke u rukama: ljuljački zamah, odbranu šampionskog statusa i veliku zahvalnost za to koliko je daleko stigao.

Neortodoksni zamah nastaje učenjem golfa u podrumu s niskim stropom. Status branioca titule dolazi kao rezultat pet ptica na posljednjih osam rupa na prošlogodišnjem turniru. Cijenjenje je duga priča.

Doyle (52) je upravnik poligona koji živi u LaGrangeu u državi Ga. Iskusni amater, odlučio je ostaviti život profesionalnom turneji kako bi ostao sa svojom porodicom. Vođenje poligona ga nije obogatilo, ali je platilo račune i omogućilo mu da gleda kako njegove dvije kćeri odrastaju.

Postao je profesionalac kada su njegove kćeri ušle na fakultet, ali osam profesionalnih pobjeda i skoro 4 miliona dolara zarade u karijeri nisu promijenili njegov mentalitet u malom gradu. I dalje se čudi tretmanu koji ima kada svira na seniorskom PGA Tour događaju.

"Za momka poput mene, znate, to pogađa možda malo više nego sa momcima koji su ovo radili cijeli život", rekao je Doyle.

„Dođete na mjesto gdje vas pokupe na aerodromu i kad dođete ovdje dobijete ljubazni automobil i gotovo ne možete učiniti ništa za sebe, a to je, znate, zgodna stvar. Mislim da to još više cijenim zbog puta kojim sam došao da dođem. ”

Kada je Doyle prvi put pogodio profesionalni krug, većini posmatrača se nisu svidjele njegove šanse zbog skraćenog naginjanja unatrag i prodora. To je ista priča koju je čuo otkad je usavršio zamah nakon što je hokejaška sezona završena u Novoj Engleskoj, gdje je odrastao.

“When I first started to play on a state level, they kind of chuckled at you,” Doyle said. “Then when you beat them, they learned quickly that you could play. Then when you moved to the national level, they did the same thing. They did it [on the pro circuit], too. I’m sure they said . . . it’s one thing to do well as an amateur, but that swing won’t hold up here. I guess it has.”

In 1994, his first year as a pro, Doyle won three times on the Buy.com Tour, formerly the Nike Tour. He was the oldest rookie in PGA Tour history in 1996 and played the next two seasons on that tour, earning a little more than $200,000. In 1998, he was medalist at the Senior PGA Tour qualifying school.

He finished third on the 1999 Senior Tour money list with $1,911,640 and four victories. Last year, he was seventh on the money list with $1,505,471, though he said he played better than he did the year before.

Not bad for a guy who had people trying to change his swing everywhere he went. It wasn’t hard for Doyle to figure out whose advice to take. He just remembered the wisdom imparted by the head pro at a golf course where Doyle worked as a teenager.

“He said, ‘Don’t ever take advice from someone that can’t beat you,’ ” Doyle said. “That, to me, kind of made sense.”

What Doyle still finds a little confusing is how quickly the success came. His pro career began with a sponsor’s exemption into a Nike Tour event. He finished high enough there to get into the next event, which he won.

After that, he was exempt on the Nike Tour, finished second on the money list and made it to the PGA Tour the next year.

“To look back four years later and have four million dollars in career earnings, yeah, I might be a little surprised,” Doyle said. “But I was always dumb enough to think if I practiced enough and I got the right breaks, I could compete.”

And he’s smart enough to appreciate all of it now that he has made it. Doyle still owns and operates the driving range, still practices there--and that’s not all.

“I’m the only one there in the morning so if the phone is going to be answered, it’s going to be me,” he said.

Doyle said the strength of the course at Newport Beach Country Club has much to do with the consistently strong fields at the Senior Classic.

This year will be no exception. Early commitments already have been received from 54 players, including Tom Watson, Larry Nelson, Gary McCord, Tom Kite, Bruce Fleisher, Dave Stockton, Lanny Wadkins and Chi Chi Rodriguez.

Lee Trevino, Gil Morgan and Doug Tewell are expected to commit. Organizers say they expect Hale Irwin, but his schedule is uncertain because his daughter is expecting a child.

“It doesn’t surprise me because they probably all heard it was a good course,” Doyle said. “Good players want good golf courses. It’s frustrating to go someplace and shoot 14 under and finish tied for seventh.”

Huntington Beach-based CityofGolf.com announced the formal launch of its web site Wednesday.

The site provides golf news, instruction, rules quizzes, a golf course guide and handicap tracking in an interactive format. There are also chat rooms and an extensive section on Tiger Woods, including videos. Sign up for free membership and an e-mail account is included.

The search continues for a new general manager at Tijeras Creek, but interim GM Doc Belitz has reduced weekend green fees from $125 to $115.

The play-all-day rate of $125 on weekdays has been discontinued and the twilight rates have been reduced to $60 every day, down from $90 on weekends. Twilight rates begin five hours before sunset.

The range ball machine at the driving range has also been shut down. Players will now get range balls from the pro shop.

Doyle Has Turned Into a Real Swinger on the Senior Tour

When Allen Doyle arrives at Newport Beach Country Club for the Toshiba Senior Classic March 2-4, he’s guaranteed to have at least three items in tow: a cockeyed swing, defending champion status and a great appreciation for how far he has come.

The unorthodox swing comes from learning golf in a low-ceiling basement. The status as defending champion comes as the result of making five birdies on his final eight holes at last year’s tournament. The appreciation is a longer story.

Doyle, 52, is a driving range operator who lives in LaGrange, Ga. An accomplished amateur, he decided to forgo the life of a touring professional in order to remain with his family. Running a driving range didn’t make him rich, but it paid the bills and enabled him to watch his two daughters grow up.

He turned pro when his daughters entered college, but eight professional victories and nearly $4 million in career earnings haven’t changed his small-town mentality. He still marvels at the treatment he receives when he plays in a Senior PGA Tour event.

“For a guy like me, you know, it kind of hits home maybe a little more than with the guys who have done this for a lifetime,” Doyle said.

“You come to a place where you get picked up at the airport and you get a courtesy car when you get here and you almost can’t do anything for yourself, and it’s, you know, a neat thing. I think maybe I appreciate it just a little more because of the road I took to get here.”

When Doyle first hit the pro circuit, most observers didn’t like his chances because of his shortened backswing and corkscrew follow-through. It was the same story he’d heard since honing the swing after hockey season ended in New England, where he grew up.

“When I first started to play on a state level, they kind of chuckled at you,” Doyle said. “Then when you beat them, they learned quickly that you could play.

Doyle Has Turned Into a Real Swinger on the Senior Tour

When Allen Doyle arrives at Newport Beach Country Club for the Toshiba Senior Classic March 2-4, he’s guaranteed to have at least three items in tow: a cockeyed swing, defending champion status and a great appreciation for how far he has come.

The unorthodox swing comes from learning golf in a low-ceiling basement. The status as defending champion comes as the result of making five birdies on his final eight holes at last year’s tournament. The appreciation is a longer story.

Doyle, 52, is a driving range operator who lives in LaGrange, Ga. An accomplished amateur, he decided to forgo the life of a touring professional in order to remain with his family. Running a driving range didn’t make him rich, but it paid the bills and enabled him to watch his two daughters grow up.

He turned pro when his daughters entered college, but eight professional victories and nearly $4 million in career earnings haven’t changed his small-town mentality. He still marvels at the treatment he receives when he plays in a Senior PGA Tour event.

“For a guy like me, you know, it kind of hits home maybe a little more than with the guys who have done this for a lifetime,” Doyle said.

“You come to a place where you get picked up at the airport and you get a courtesy car when you get here and you almost can’t do anything for yourself, and it’s, you know, a neat thing. I think maybe I appreciate it just a little more because of the road I took to get here.”

When Doyle first hit the pro circuit, most observers didn’t like his chances because of his shortened backswing and corkscrew follow-through. It was the same story he’d heard since honing the swing after hockey season ended in New England, where he grew up.

“When I first started to play on a state level, they kind of chuckled at you,” Doyle said. “Then when you beat them, they learned quickly that you could play. Then when you moved to the national level, they did the same thing. They did it [on the pro circuit], too. I’m sure they said . . . it’s one thing to do well as an amateur, but that swing won’t hold up here. I guess it has.”

In 1994, his first year as a pro, Doyle won three times on the Buy.com Tour, formerly the Nike Tour. He was the oldest rookie in PGA Tour history in 1996 and played the next two seasons on that tour, earning a little more than $200,000. In 1998, he was medalist at the Senior PGA Tour qualifying school.

He finished third on the 1999 Senior Tour money list with $1,911,640 and four victories. Last year, he was seventh on the money list with $1,505,471, though he said he played better than he did the year before.

Not bad for a guy who had people trying to change his swing everywhere he went. It wasn’t hard for Doyle to figure out whose advice to take. He just remembered the wisdom imparted by the head pro at a golf course where Doyle worked as a teenager.

“He said, ‘Don’t ever take advice from someone that can’t beat you,’ ” Doyle said. “That, to me, kind of made sense.”

What Doyle still finds a little confusing is how quickly the success came. His pro career began with a sponsor’s exemption into a Nike Tour event. He finished high enough there to get into the next event, which he won.

After that, he was exempt on the Nike Tour, finished second on the money list and made it to the PGA Tour the next year.

“To look back four years later and have four million dollars in career earnings, yeah, I might be a little surprised,” Doyle said. “But I was always dumb enough to think if I practiced enough and I got the right breaks, I could compete.”

And he’s smart enough to appreciate all of it now that he has made it. Doyle still owns and operates the driving range, still practices there--and that’s not all.

“I’m the only one there in the morning so if the phone is going to be answered, it’s going to be me,” he said.

Doyle said the strength of the course at Newport Beach Country Club has much to do with the consistently strong fields at the Senior Classic.

This year will be no exception. Early commitments already have been received from 54 players, including Tom Watson, Larry Nelson, Gary McCord, Tom Kite, Bruce Fleisher, Dave Stockton, Lanny Wadkins and Chi Chi Rodriguez.

Lee Trevino, Gil Morgan and Doug Tewell are expected to commit. Organizers say they expect Hale Irwin, but his schedule is uncertain because his daughter is expecting a child.

“It doesn’t surprise me because they probably all heard it was a good course,” Doyle said. “Good players want good golf courses. It’s frustrating to go someplace and shoot 14 under and finish tied for seventh.”

Huntington Beach-based CityofGolf.com announced the formal launch of its web site Wednesday.

The site provides golf news, instruction, rules quizzes, a golf course guide and handicap tracking in an interactive format. There are also chat rooms and an extensive section on Tiger Woods, including videos. Sign up for free membership and an e-mail account is included.

The search continues for a new general manager at Tijeras Creek, but interim GM Doc Belitz has reduced weekend green fees from $125 to $115.

The play-all-day rate of $125 on weekdays has been discontinued and the twilight rates have been reduced to $60 every day, down from $90 on weekends. Twilight rates begin five hours before sunset.

The range ball machine at the driving range has also been shut down. Players will now get range balls from the pro shop.
