"The Last Good Summer in Port A"?

The article below explores the lure of Port Aransas, which many people adore for its "funky" small-beach-town spirit. Golfers will soon be taking note of Port A for another reason: a resort golf course, designed by Arnold Palmer's company, is currently under construction in the dunes.

This article represents an experiment for Texas Golf and I'd like to ask for your feedback. Using a new syndication system, I'm able to (legally) publish the full article right here on Texas Golf, without having to post just a brief synopsis and then link offsite. The trade-off, however, is that an advertisement appears with the article.

Yes, there are ads all over this page, but they are all outside the content. The ad below appears right there with the content. Which will be very annoying to some. Others won't have a problem with it since that arrangement is what allows us to offer this great article about the future of Port A and its Palmer golf course.

What do you think? Keep in mind these big ad-supported content pieces won't become the norm here; they'll just be something we have the option to offer when a good piece of content becomes available. Let me know what you think in comments.

Here's the article (click the arrows just above the text to turn to the next page of the article):

  1. I can take it or leave it as far as content goes. I think the blog looks better with a summary and link to the content (one that opens a new window is my personal preference).

    In local golf news, I have heard that the course lengthening at Glenbrook in Houston are complete. They are awaiting the results (new slope/rating) from the folks who do the course ratings. Their website has yet to be updated (and I have not come across any published information). I have not played there since it was a work in progress.



Please refrain from using profanity or insulting other commenters your comments. Use common sense; in other words: Play nice! Thanks.
