Pine Valley: It’s not just a club and a course, it’s a town. In a surprising moment of candor, Pine Valley, the most exclusvie golf club this side of Augusta National cooperated with the Inquirer in doing a story about the club as an incorporated community.

Pine Valley has a mayor and police department with six cops, whose main duty is to protect the club and the course. Here’s a brief snippet of the story:

Rauer acknowledges he and his officers encounter little crime. The department averages one or two arrests a year, "maybe less," he said. That’s if trespassers or thieves get past the guarded entrance and the 8-foot-high chain-link fences that echain-link fences that epitomize the deep desire for privacy everyone here appears to share.

It’s time for the 91st Crump Cup . Once a year, Pine Valley opens it doors to non-members for a look at the very special golf course. The time is this Sunday.

Here’s a snippet of a story I once wrote about Pine Valley:

Although it sits right in our own backyard, nestled in the sand hills and Pine Barrens on the edge of Clementon, few people outside serious golf circles have ever heard of, let alone played, Pine Valley.

Pine Valley prefers it that way. It hosts no major championships with their attendant publicity. In fact, in the 78 years since the full 18 holes opened at Pine Valley, the ultra-exclusive club has hosted only two national or international competitions - the 1936 and 1985 Walker Cup matches.

Why David Feherty left CBS; will he land at NBC or FOX?. To stay at CBS, Feherty wanted more money and a spot in a booth; he’s tired of roaming the fairways. CBS said no.

Still, as Ron Sirak writes, Feherty is a hot commodity and will no doubt land safely at FOX, which now airs USGA events, or NBC mothership to Feherty’s other TV home, Golf Channel.

One complication: Sources say NBC sees Feherty as a walking man, too.

The dark side of David Feherty. Now that it’s official that David Feherty has parted ways with CBS after 19 years, perhaps it is time to revisit a 2013 profile that John Garrity did of the funnyman for Golf magazine.

Feherty is a far more complicated man than the one he plays on TV. Many viewers probably have no idea of the demons Feherty battles on a daily basis -- bipolar depression, demons in his mind, demons at the bottom of a bottle, even if he did quite alcohol a few years ago.

Writes Garrity: Feherty’s a mess, and yet somehow he keeps succeeding. Count his ribbons: Golfer, novelist, television star, standup comic, motivational speaker, foundation head, gunsmith..."
