    Everyone knows golf is in decline in the U.S. It is in Utah as well. It takes far too long to play - I blame teachers, pro's and lack of enforcing the rules for this. The teachers teach to walk all around putts, do do all sorts of things prior to hitting a shot, and when people are out for a social occasion only, taking their sweet time, no one enforces time rules. Additonally, good courses are too expensive and cheap courses (most all of Utah's public access courses) are not well maintained, old, out-dated and badly in need of money which is nowhere to be found. I play Valley View, probably the best public access course north of Thanksgiving point and its now 37 years old without significant renovation. Many think it is better than soldier hollow. So while its great that we got a publinx amateur event, lets not make it sound like we're becoming a golf mecca. far from that.
