Walnut Lane is a sanctuary for a diverse cast of characters. Michael Bamberger of Golf.com dropped by Walnut Lane, near his home in Philadelphia, to file this report on the city-owned muni in Roxborogh:

The place is not genteel. Walnut Lane requires shirts but not collars. The veterans group that plays on Wednesday afternoons is not a collar crowd, though the Tuesday-night ladies league is more decorous. There are college kids who play bumper cars with the saggy electric carts.

Archives: Dirty little secrets of a sandbagger. He is discreet. He doesn’t hit rainbow slices into the woods or start three-putting from 10 feet. He’s much more subtle.

On a par 3 over water, he’ll hit a beautiful 6-iron when a 5-iron was required to reach dry land. Then he’ll stand there with his hands on his hips like he can’t believe what he’s seeing. On the putting green, he’s especially clever. He’ll lag a 40-footer to within three feet, take his time and miss the short putt—ALWAYS pulling it, because a pull is easier to fake than a push.

Look at the suspected sandbagger’s scoring history. Is there a preponderance of “away” scores? I never played a strange course without grabbing a handful of cards on my way out, and I wasn’t shy about forging them.
