Bulle Rock Golf Course in Havre de Grace has been ranked the 10th-best course in the nation, according to the Zagat Survey guide released yesterday. Bulle Rock also was named the top course in the Mid-Atlantic region. Zagat Survey is the world's leading provider of consumer survey-based leisure content. The guide, which contains ratings and reviews for 1,095 of the nation's best golf courses, is based on the experiences of 6,000 avid golfers who played more than a half million rounds of golf in the past 12 months.

The scoreboards and scaffolding have come down at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, and the venue has returned to its members and corporate clientele. Yet with the success of the LPGA's inaugural International Crown won by Spain last Sunday, it doesn't seem to be a question of whether the LPGA will return to a club that prides itself on periodically hosting major championships, but when and with what event. "I would like to see us play whatever we and they want to play here," LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said on the final day. I think this course can hold anything on the LPGA schedule.

The last time a women's professional golf tournament was held in the Baltimore area, the results mirrored the world rankings. At the 2009 LPGA Championship at Bulle Rock in Havre de Grace, won easily by a 22-year-old Swede named Anna Nordqvist, the Americans were barely an afterthought in a sport dominated for nearly a decade by international players. When the LPGA tour returns next month, with its inaugural International Crown team event at Caves Valley in Owings Mills, it will be with a power balance that has tilted noticeably back to the United States.

Developers of the Residences at Bulle Rock said they always knew they had a view. Now they have the rooms -- and they showed those off last week during a hard-hat tour of Bulle Rock's 37,000-square foot community center. "This is show and tell. And the show part is looking over our shoulders," said developer Clark Turner, motioning to a red sunset framed by clouds above the Chesapeake Bay. "Nowhere in this region will you find a spectacular view like we have behind us." Expected to be finished by May, the $12 million center is a focal point of the Havre de Grace development spearheaded by Manekin LLC, Turner and H&S Properties, which together hosted the tour for politicians, business leaders and other Harford County and regional notables.

Here's what you have to love about the LPGA: a player who stands 5 feet 2 and weighs as much as a Keebler elf is the talk of the tour this morning. This would be South Korean In-Kyung Kim, who is all of 20 and who won the State Farm Classic by a stroke over Se Ri Pak on Sunday, creating all sorts of buzz for this week's McDonald's LPGA Championship at Bulle Rock in Harford County. Did you see Kim's spunky performance? In only her second tour victory, she managed four birdies on the front nine and then birdied 11, 13, 17 and 18 to shoot a 7-under-par 65, no small feat given the gusty conditions and tricky greens at Panther Creek Country Club in Springfield, Ill. And wonder of wonders, she actually seemed to be having a good time closing out the win, something we haven't seen since Rocco Mediate smiled and yukked it up at last year's men's U.S. Open, when he went head-to-head - and lost - against Tiger Woods.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. And five years later, those who brought the McDonald's LPGA Championship to Harford County's Bulle Rock Golf Club say they got what they expected: high-quality competition on a world-class course with millions raised for charity. But after this week's competition, the pro tour and the sponsor will part ways in a decision reached a year ago. The LPGA leaves with complete control of one of its signature events. McDonald's, the sponsor for 28 years, will put on a golfing fundraiser with lower overhead to ensure more money is funneled to Ronald McDonald House Charities.

This is not just another golf course sprouting out of the ground. It's an ambitious mission to provide the public with the kind of amenities previously offered by only the elite of country clubs. Enticing, elegant, expensive, the kind of place that qualifies for national attention. Welcome to Bulle Rock, named for a famed thoroughbred of the past.Eighteen extraordinary holes are in place, created by designer Pete Dye, and another similar course also will be routed on the 564-acre tract that owner Ed Abel bought and is developing into a golfing mecca at what is estimated to be an $18 million price tag.He may never get his investment back.

For Jane and Mike Fischbeck, building a spacious new villa in the Bulle Rock development of Harford County was like a day at the beach. The couple, coming from a Ryland-built house in a waterfront community in Joppa, chose the same builder the second time around. Working with Ryland, they knew pretty much what to expect, including a focus on the details. "The builder gave us evergreen, holly and perennials for the front walk," said 59-year old Jane Fischbeck, an employee in the central office of Harford County Public Schools, who praised the accommodating sales staff.

The freshman broke a 20-year-old scoring record by two shots to win the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association individual golf championship May 1 at Bulle Rock in Havre de Grace. His 71-73-70-214 won by five strokes. The 5-foot-9, 130-pound 15-year-old is believed to be only the second freshman to ever win the title. Navarro's coach, Pete VanZandt, said the teen has the perfect disposition for golf success, never letting his emotions get the best of him. "He never seems to feel the pressure," VanZandt said.

Editor: I support and endorse, without qualification, Joseph Smith, candidate for the Havre de Grace City Council. I like what he wrote in the following statement: One primary theme that I am stressing during this campaign is that people in Bulle Rock moved here because we feel a strong connection to the community and want to be here. We want to be considered a part of the community, regardless of where we are from or how long we've lived here. We offer much in terms of diversity, experiences, skills and interests.

Three years ago, the timing seemed perfect for the LPGA Championship and Bulle Rock Golf Course. At the time, Annika Sorenstam was considered by many to be the most dominant female player in modern history and amateur phenom Michelle Wie was thought to be the game's next megastar. The upscale public course in Havre de Grace was on everybody's to-play list, a five-star gem hidden away in Harford County. When the LPGA Championship returns there for a fourth year this week, the tour and the tournament venue appear to be approaching a crossroads.

Bulle Rock, an upscale public golf course that sits alongside Route 40 in Havre de Grace, was opened in 1998 with little fanfare, but very big dreams. "We did very little advertising. We basically just opened the gates and said, `We're open,' " said Rick Rounsaville, the general manager and director of golf at Bulle Rock. "It was a vision of our former owner, Ed Abel, and from Day One, it was his plan to build a world-class golf course that anyone could play and, of course, that would someday host a major championship."

Christmas has blossomed in Harford County, seemingly overnight, like a lawn overtaken by dandelions. It's not even December and, without rhyme or reason, picture windows aplenty are filled with decorated trees, houses are aglow with exterior lights and lawns are adorned with all sorts of ornamentation. With retailers pushing the Christmas season ever earlier, it's no wonder their customers are following their lead and bringing Christmas into their homes ever earlier. But this year seems to have topped all others.
