Amateurs seek national berths

By Jack Murray
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A total of 112 golfers are entered in the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship 36-hole sectional qualifier at Glenview Golf Course today and Friday. There will be two 18-hole rounds.

        Cincinnati will qualify the top four players to the National Publinx Tournament July 10-15 at Heron Lakes Golf Course in Portland, Ore.

Women-friendly courses
        Vineyard is the only area course ranked among Golf for Women's 2000 Top 100 Fairways survey of women-friendly golf courses in North America. Criteria included tee-time access, clubhouse policies and the availability of women's programs.

        Other factors in the judging included course playability, women's leagues, tee box options, pro-shop variety and locker room amenities.

        Each of the honored courses has at least one set of tees measuring 5,500 yards or fewer from the front.

Ye ol' golf at Fairfield
        Fairfield head pro Jim Slominski promises surprises, including bagpipes, for Saturday's noon outing celebrating 600 years of St.Andrews golf.

Hart 3rd among 240
        Harrison's Ronnie Hart, an Enquirer honorable mention All-Star, shot 72 to finish third in a field of 240 junior golfers throughout Ohio last week at Turnberry Golf Course in Pickerington.
