Wilmington (Del.) County Club (South Course)

The legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. died on June 14, 2000. This was a lucky break for your essayists.
After 18 holes on one of his typical heyday courses, I'm spared the time, trouble, and legal complications of hunting the SOB down and strangling him with my bare hands.
For the record, Wilmington South, which has held numerous USGA events including the 1971 US Amateur, is 7100 yards from the members' blue tees. That's longer than Winged Foot will be for the Open this week.
7000 plus plus humonguous double or triple-tiered greens. Fuck you RTJ, Sr!
In the interests of equal time, the pro told me he does give lots and lots of lessons.
