I was reading the April issue of Golf Magazine on an airplane from Minneapolis to San Francisco when I came across another nice mention of Metropolitan Golf Links.
The issue includes a page on the best courses near major airports. The magazine gets the name our our course wrong, calling it "Oakland Metroplitan," but the glowing description of the course makes up for it:
"Once a forlorn muni, Oakland Metropolitan was redesigned by Johnny Miller, who defended the layout with fun-house greens. The feel is casual but the conditions say country club. Under five minutes from baggage claim to bag drop."
Just a few months ago, Golf Digest gave Metro a top rating. The word is out.
