What's a Nice Texan Like Crenshaw Doing In a Place Like Long Island?

Designing, with his partner Bill Coore, outstanding golf courses. That's what. Here's Friars Head, on the East End of Long Island:

The Web site Hamptons Online has a good article about Crenshaw. How this Texan, this golfer who never even played a tournament on Long Island in his long golf career, has wound up having such a huge impact on the East End golf scene.

Now, if we could just get Crenshaw and Coore to start doing more courses in Texas .... On the other hand, really, what's the point? The people who can afford to pay Crenshaw and Coore to design courses such as Friars Head are people who want only the most exclusive and expensive club. It's not like any of us would ever get to play such courses.
