This is Thursday, Aug. 10, and the president of the United States, George W. Bush, was in the Green Bay area earlier today. Rumor has it his luncheon might have been held on campus, but negotiations reached an impasse when his advance team rejected today's Garden Café special - Sloppy Joe Plate, $3.29 - and Dining Services, holding its ground and hewing to tradition, vetoed a White House request for an extraordinary one-time shift of “Taco Tuesday” to Thursday. In real news today:

Tuesday marked 75 years, to the day, for Shorewood Golf Course
On Aug. 8, 1931, a new golf course officially opened for play on the shores of Green Bay. Known today as Shorewood Golf Course, managed and maintained by the University, the course has undergone many changes. While many are aware that today's nine-hole layout was once a full 18, it is likely that fewer know it began with just nine holes. Those details and more appear in a 1934 newspaper clipping recapping its then-brief history. Excerpts:

Late in 1930, a group of men, believing that facilities provided by the Oneida Golf and Riding Club and the Green Bay Fee course were not adequate to care for the demand of golfers, started a movement for a (new) golf course…”
“(A) club was organized to build and own a golf course on the shores of Green Bay about six miles north of the city. Plans were drawn by the U.S. Golf Architects, Chicago, and in the spring of 1931 work was begun on a nine-hole layout… The course was officially opened for play on Aug. 8, 1931, with Clayton Pichette as professional. It was operated as a semi-public course, with play being permitted by members of the club and golfers who paid greens fees.”

The article noted plans already in the works to expand to 18 holes. (That would occur by the late 1930s.)

A guide to early layout
From that same article in the Green Bay Press-Gazette of July 18, 1934, we find the following hole-by-hole description. Although hole order and characteristics have been changed over the years, at least some of the original design remains recognizable:

The first hole is 405 yards from the tee, with a gully approximately 100 yards off the tee. The second is a 527-yard hole, with the green set in the woods, closed in on three sides by trees. The third hole is a short 158-yard hole, with a deep cut to cross. No. 4 is 383 yards and par is 4. The fifth is only 343 yards, par 4, but has a small green that is hard to hit. The sixth hole is 137 yards, par 3 and the seventh 511 yards, with a par 5. The 8th hole is 460 yards, the hardest par 4 on the course, a slight “dog-leg” to the right making it difficult to reach the green in two shots. The 9th hole is 392 yards, par 4.

Columnist says lecturer flap is hurting UW on larger issues
Columnist Tom Still, in a piece printed in various state newspapers, says the furor over a UW-Madison lecturer wouldn't have had as much traction if state residents had not been predisposed to question UW on admission practices, rising tuition and more. See

Meanwhile, Ozaukee County's vote continues to draw criticism
People who are fans of UW-Extension must be heartened as they continue to see editorials that begin like this one: “The Ozaukee County Board last week one-upped Kevin Barrett in outlandishness, if that's possible.” The piece in the Monroe (Green County) newspaper is typical. See
