Tub Rock, Golf Course Connoisseur



I recently sent out an email to several Networked Golfer enthusiasts requesting material for future posts. So far, I've received one submission. The submissions are open to any topic on golf, and my brother Tom Gorman (aka Tub Rock, Tubby G or Tubby Shizzle Nizzle) has chosen to piggyback off recents posts and rank his Top 10 Favorite Courses.

Being that The Tubster is only 23, he's put together a very nice list. When he's not hitting 300+ yard drives into the trees, he's out hawking wine to unsuspecting retailers in Chicago. Now that he's been in Chi-town for nearly a year, I'm counting on him to use his connections to play Chicago Golf, Medinah, and Black Sheep. Time will tell.

Tub Rock's Favorite Layouts
1) Cabo del Sol (Ocean) – Los Cabos, Mexico
2) Huntington Valley Country Club – Abington, PA
3) Merion Country Club (East) –Ardmore, PA
4) Saucon Valley Country Club (Old) – Bethlehem, PA
5) Warren Course at the University of Notre Dame – Notre Dame, IN
6) Leynir Golf Club - Akranes, Iceland
7) Skokie Country Club –Skokie, IL
8) Firestone Country Club (South) – Akron, OH
9) Cabo del Sol (Desert) – Los Cabos, Mexico
10) Twisted Dune Golf Club - Egg Harbor Township, NJ

Based on his picture and his choice in golf courses, wouldn't it be nice to have his life?

I am starting to wonder if there is an integrity issue with the Gorman's list. I look at the "sponsors" and the sponsor is Cabo Golf Tours. Lo and behold, Gorman has 2 cabo golf courses in his top 25. Are these really that good (I have never been there) or is he just trying to drum up traffic for his sponsors? We have always known John as a straight-shooter, but now we need to wonder.

That's a valid question. I'll have to talk about it with the guys at Google who write the keyword algorithms. Thanks for your concern.

I am still trying to figure out why no Gormans, especially Tubby, have Whitemarsh Valley CC in Philadelphia as their favorite! It certainly makes Twisted Dunes look like a piece of cake.

Whitemarsh is a great track, especially as an everyday course. It's just not top 10 material!
