He was just trying to get his 30-foot uphill putt close, when it fell in for a birdie.The 7-under-par round wrapped up a 54-hole total of 72-68-67--207 and a check for $8,400 from the record $56,000 purse.

Amid growing demand for public golf courses, Baltimore County officials are considering whether to purchase the financially ailing Country Club of Maryland in Towson, an 18-hole private facility that includes a pro shop, restaurant and clubhouse.The county Revenue Authority's chairman and executive director said yesterday that they have begun "exploratory talks" with the country club management to buy the course, which was built in the 1920s. If acquired, the club would become the sixth public course operated by the authority.

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.

Back in the late 1950s, developers Albert and Rogers Merritt had an idea. They would build upscale executive houses in Anne Arundel County, making them bigger and more expensive than anything else in the area.There was just one problem.With no similar housing in the immediate area, why would professionals and executives, who could live almost anywhere in the region, travel to Severna Park, drive up a dirt road and pay more than $30,000 for a house, when others in the area cost less than $20,000?
