    Jack Nicklaus, Buffalo, a hole in one ?

    His Nicklaus Design, based in North Palm Beach, Fla., has offered to build two destination-caliber golf courses, one a smaller footprint in Delaware Park and the other a nine-hole course on a privately owned parcel near South Park.


    The plan addresses two goals Olmsted fans embrace: returning more of the Delaware Park meadow to its natural state and restoring Olmsted’s neglected vision for a South Park Arboretum by removing the golf course. Kevin Gaughan, a community activist, is behind the plan.
    and :

    The project will cost an estimated $40 million, which Gaughan said would be raised through private foundations and individuals.

    Could be a fascinating next step for the city and I'm not even that fired up about golf.
    I lost a bet with Pink and all I got was this dumb avatar that I've had awhile anyway.

    Would be pretty cool to have a Nicklaus-designed course in Buffalo.

    Even better to have 2, and conserve an Olmsted park design in the process, all with private funding.
