How could you leave out Karsten Creek in Stillwater, OK?

This would have been a better article if any effort whatsoever had been made to supply which college teams called these courses home (when it wasn't clear otherwise). If I didn't know Oregon State's home course was Trysting Tree, for example, or that Corvallis only has that university, it wouldn't have given me any additional information about that. Does Miami or FIU play at the Biltmore? Which school is in Verona, Wisconsin?

Commented on

Have played both UNC Finley and Lonnie Poole which is an Arnold Palmer design, I recommend both and reasonably priced.
