TODAY, out of what is known as Baltimore-Washington International Airport, there are planes taking off for 80 destinations across America and around the world. The "BWI" terminal occupies almost a million square feet on 3,200 acres; its parking lots accommodate 10,000 cars; it manages 600 arrivals and departures a day -- through 47 jet gates and 18 commuter gates.The whole complex of counters, ramps, runways, luggage terminals and restaurants (12 of them) is bewildering, massive, overwhelming.

The non-profit group that manages Baltimore's municipal golf courses is accusing the city of holding it "hostage" by refusing to approve construction projects at the courses.William L. Cook II, executive director of the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corp., said he thinks the city's refusal to act is prompted by his organization's refusal to share its profits with the city.Cook said the company is contacting golfers and posting a notice at city golf courses that says, "The City of Baltimore holds the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation hostage."

All the golfers who use pull-carts on Baltimore's municipal courses can utilize them during the week but not on Saturdays, )) Sundays or holidays. It's an ambiguous policy that shouldn't be taken too seriously. Unfortunately, it is. There's no reason to inflict such pain and duress on the patrons. In many instances, their golf is torture enough.To disallow hand-pulled carts only increases the burden fiscally and physically. It means the golfers either have to pay from $15 to $17 to rent a mechanical cart or else carry their own clubs.

If Henry H. Miller, chairman of the Baltimore Municipal Gol Corp., has his way (and he usually gets it) golfers would be banned from taking first tee practice swings.What upsets Miller, who repeatedly has been lauded for his success in upgrading golf conditions at the five Baltimore municipal courses, is the fact that golfers are abusive first tee users.It has been pointed out that golfers, full of zest to get their rounds started, use untold numbers of practice swings on the first tees while attempting to loosen their muscles and groove their swings.

Walking a golf course, about four miles, give or take a furlong or two, is one of the true pleasantries of life. The surrounding trees, heavy and light rough and green fairways underfoot offer a temporary escape, a respite, even a retreat, from a too-often hectic world located outside the perimeter of those tantalizing 18 holes. This is a brief preamble to the fact the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corp., which establishes policies for the city's public courses, has arbitrarily made it difficult to be a golfing walker.

Mayor O'Malley takes a divot in swinging at city golf board As a lifelong city resident and golfer, I was angered by Mayor Martin O'Malley's tirade against the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corp. board ("O'Malley takes swing at golf board over fees," Jan. 17). Since its inception, BMGC has benefited city residents by using profits to make significant improvements to its courses, while keeping fees lower than those in surrounding counties. BMGC already contributes a substantial amount to the Baltimore City Foundation.

There are other ways to enjoy the dawn. Sleeping in. Breakfast in bed. The morning news. Playing with the kids. But for two friends who regularly play nine holes at Clifton Park against the pastel backdrop of sunrise, only golf will do. "I like being the first one out here," says Dennis Koulatsos, 37. "Golf without a lot of interruptions, that's what I'm here for," says Norman Dowdy, 53. Koulatsos and Dowdy, colleagues at a Belair Road car dealership, are...

It may seem a job more for a gadfly than a governor.But the man charged with creating Anne Arundel's new private recreation authority is none other than William Donald Schaefer, who as Baltimore's mayor in the mid-1980s salvaged the city's five scruffy golf courses by turning them over to a private company.In Anne Arundel, he faces a different but no less challenging task. Schaefer, who will head a committee drafting legislation for the authority, is not being asked to save the county' one financially healthy golf course.

City golf courses are undervalued assetsAs president of the Belair-Edison Community Association, I am concerned about Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke's intention to cancel the city's contract with the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corp., the non-profit organization that oversees our golf courses. One might wonder why a community president cares about the city golf courses.The golf courses are assets to the community. The community of Belair-Edison has long promoted homeownership and actively markets the community to homebuyers.

Creation of a second golf course at the Loch Raven Reservoir has been shot down. Presumably, the effort is history unless the idea is revived by an independent committee. Politics played a role and so did the personalities involved. That's unfortunate.A side issue in the scenario is whether the leaders of Baltimore County made a "neighborly" request to their counterparts in Baltimore City to refrain from issuing the approval that was needed before work could proceed.The Baltimore Municipal Golf Corp.
