Sherrill Park Golf Courses Earn Honors

"A Jewish Grandmother loses her grandson at the beach when a tidal wave sweeps him away. The grandmother kneels in the sand and prays for the return of her grandson. Just as she finishes her prayer, a huge wave crashes back on the beach, returning the young boy to his grandmother's side. The grandmother is overcome with joy and gratitude. She begins to cry and hug her grandson, then looks up to the sky and yells, 'He had a hat!' "

What does this have to do with Sherrill Park, you ask? Bear with me. I'll get us back on the fairway and down to the green. After the jump.

A few weeks ago, Richardson announced that "Richardson’s Sherrill Park Golf Courses both earned prestigious honors in the newly published '2011 Texas Golf' report from The Dallas Morning News, ranking first (Sherrill Park Course No. 1) and eighth (Sherrill Park Course No. 2) in the newspaper’s ratings of economy, public-access courses statewide."

Good news for our little town, right? I thought so, too, until I read this from a local blogger: "You would think after the millions of dollars in bail-outs the golf course has gotten over the past several years, we would have something more to brag about than being #1 in the 'economy class' of golf courses."

Do you think if maybe we gave him a Sherrill Park hat, he'd be happy?!?
