1. Pinehurst and Oakmont are not from the same era. Oakmont was finished in 1903, while Donald Ross tinkered with Pinehurst #2 (originally a sand greens course, which Oakmont never was) into the late 1940s.

2. Overabundance of trees makes growing grass very difficult. The tree thinning process was not for aesthetics, but for cost and ecological impact.

3. I like that you address average golfers...average golfers from slow-greens muni wouldn't know what to do with Oakmont's 14 stimped putting surfaces. It probably isn't the best place for the average Lebron to take his game.

Paula Creamer wins the U.S. Open. If her thumb holds up, there's your rising LPGA star. Her critics can no longer say she's the best to never win a major. Great going Paula, showing the right way to get to the elite of the golf world is through hard work, toughness, and making use of talent -- and not through hype.

I find your assessment of Oakmont a tad off. Its conditioning is one of the top in the country. It is not an easy course, and it was made this way because Fownes did not think there was a difficult course in Pittsburgh. I think this course is the ultimate golf test. You have to use all of your clubs, and most importantly your putter has to be on. If you are an amatuer and cannot handle it, stick to your little public courses.

As for timing to Tahoe, the snow should mostly be gone by June. Expect mosquitoes till early July at Tahoe. May will be cheaper, especially before Memorial Day; this is shoulder season at Tahoe.
