Townhomes on The Fairways Warrington Township, Bucks County 343-3355 or 885-2600. As the name suggests, the Townhomes on the Fairways are adjacent to a golf course, The Fairways. And some of the homes overlook the public course, providing an ever-green view. Two models of condominium townhouses are available at the Townhomes on the Fairways, each with 1,400 square feet of living space and costing $93,900 to $95,900. A condominium fee of $65 per month includes insurance coverage, exterior maintenance, lawn care, and snow and trash removal.

Of the changes to the course for this week's Masters, the one that is getting the most talk among the players is the rough. Last year, for the first time in the tournament's 64-year history, the lords of the Masters framed the generous fairways at Augusta National with short but troublesome rough, or "second cut," as they call it. This year, to give the players even more worries off the tee, they added a fraction of an inch to the rough, to...

Where have you gone, Laurel Oak, Hidden Springs and Hi-Point? Where will you be going, Valley Forge, Westover and Avalon? To area golfers, the names are as familiar as Titleist and Arnold Palmer, but in the near future, the courses could be just a memory. The layouts with which we have had a love-hate relationship, depending on our scores, are slowly being squeezed for the sake of progress. Laurel Oak Golf Club, in Gibbsboro, N.J., is expected to take on the look of an industrial park.

Thick snow. Freezing cold. Golf? How do you walk windswept fairways when your face is freezing, your eyes are watering and your fingers will never, ever again be warm? How do you precisely putt on greens that are still heavy with Tuesday's snowfall? My, oh my, oh my. What is a golfer to do? Go where there's less snow. Go to South Jersey. Go to Delaware. Go to Bensalem. "This is mild compared to what we play in" when the weather is at its worst, said Bill Bojanowski, who played nine holes at the Bensalem Country Club in Bucks County yesterday.

From Tokyo to Cape May, golf is a hot investment. Japanese buyers have acquired dozens of golf courses around the United States in the last year. In the best-known case, General Coast Enterprises, controlled by investor Minoru Isutani, this fall reportedly paid oilman Marvin Davis $800 million for Pebble Beach Golf Links - one of the world's best-known and most beautiful courses - three other golf courses and two hotels on 5,300 acres of land along California's coast. But an intense interest in golf courses and in developing homes and other real estate along fairways and overlooking greens is hardly restricted to the Japanese.

Barbara Piasecka Johnson poured her heart and about $20 million of her husband's fortune into designing their beloved country estate, Jasna Polana, which now stands as the symbol of the former chambermaid's marriage to one of America's richest men. With the mansion's neoclassical architecture, marble staircase, and exquisite art collection, the extravagant home was Johnson's artistic creation, a tribute to the couple's happy years together in...

Burning up the fairways has taken on a new meaning in this summer's scorching drought. Golf courses are limited to watering tees and greens. At Kimberton Golf Club, a golfer tries to reach the 14th hole.

In the tony pro shop, where golf shirts start at $120 and the monogrammed sweaters and jackets are cashmere and leather, a popular hat is embroidered with the words Golfing Heaven. "I haven't been here that long," said Jerry Donnelly, the course's operator, "but when you're out there, surrounded by all that natural beauty and all those challenging golf holes, that's what it feels like. Heaven. " Due Process Golf Course, a secluded preserve built by financier Robert Brennan six years ago, is as spectacular as it is little-known.

The Fairways, Thorndale, Chester County When Richard Berry went looking for an apartment, flexibility was high on his wish list. He had sold his West Chester home quickly, a bit of luck that left him with little time to look for an apartment. He wanted to find a place that offered a short-term lease. And he found that flexibility at the Fairways, a rental community of townhouses and garden flats set amid Ron Jaworski's Ingleside Country Club in Thorndale. "The Fairways was, by far, the best that we found . . . heads and shoulders above anything else," said Berry, a geologist for an environmental company who moved to the complex six months ago with his wife, Mary.

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. - "Awful. " "Crazy. " "Ridiculous. " At the 115th U.S. Open, the course was always going to be the story. This is Chambers Bay's coming-out party. The young lady looked fabulous. For the most part, she played fair; even Bubba Watson didn't whine. Most of the people who watched him did. It wasn't the mounded fairways or fine-sand bunkers, splotchy greens or excruciatingly slow play that drove the conversation. It was the spectators' poor experience.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - If you'd told CBS before the first ball was struck this week that Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods would be going out in the second-to-last group on Masters Sunday, they probably would've signed up. Especially the Tiger part. But who would ever figure that two of the five guys tied for fifth place after the first 54 holes of the season's first major would also be 10 strokes behind the record-setting pace being set by last April's runner-up, who appears to be about as precocious as they were at 21?

Like the homes that border their fairways, the seventh and eighth holes at Merion Golf Club have a middle-class feel about them. OK, maybe more like upper middle class. But there's something about the short par 4s, which have remained virtually untouched since Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan played them, that make them feel slightly apart from the rest of the famed course. There are shorter and easier par 4s at Merion, but Nos. 7 and 8 have held up well this week at the U.S. Open, a testament to their subtleties and the shot-making required from professionals who have become used to gripping it and ripping it. Except for how plush they are and how difficult they're set up, Nos. 7 and 8 are like holes you might see at a municipal like Cobb's Creek - another Hugh Wilson design - or even Walnut Lane.

It's like something Carl the greenkeeper from Caddyshack might have concocted. But Merion Golf Club's rough is no joke. Just ask the golfers who whacked their way around the Admore track and were penalized for nearly every wayward shot through the first two rounds of the U.S. Open. "It's very difficult," Ernie Els said Friday morning after he completed his 1-over par first round. "I was actually fortunate a couple of times. I didn't hit too many fairways, but I did get reasonable lies.

THE TREE ate my ball. I swear it. The 3-wood went a little left, sure; and yes, we heard it hit wood. Hard. But the ball had to come down; that, or be eaten by one of the carnivorous conifers that decorate and complicate Merion's East Course. This particular stand of trees sits in a nest of the course's nastier gorse, but, like every delusional golfer to walk this track over its 101 years, I believed my ball could not be amid that evil stuff. There was no trace; so, clearly, devoured.

'NOBODY wins the Open. It wins you. " So noted Cary Middlecoff after winning his second U.S. Open in 1956 at Oak Hill, even though he bogeyed two of the last three holes. He then watched Ben Hogan miss a 30-inch par putt to remain tied on the 71st hole and Julius Boros lip out a 15-foot birdie try to force a playoff on the 72nd. "It stayed out," Middlecoff said. "I appreciated that. " Those sentiments pretty much still sum up the second major on the golfing calendar. But if you want more . . . "Everybody else just loses it. " That, from Bobby Jones, who captured a record-tying four trophies.

SAN FRANCISCO - It was difficult to tell Saturday what was more help in bringing the best out of Jim Furyk in the third round of the U.S. Open at the diabolical Lake Course of the Olympic Club. It could have been the presence of Tiger Woods, who was considered to have the best chance to win of the three men tied for the lead at the start of the round. Or maybe it was the significance of the national championship, and the chance to win his second, nine years after capturing his first.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Shanshan Feng closed with a 5-under 67 Sunday to win the LPGA Championship by 2 strokes, becoming the first Chinese player to win an LPGA Tour title and a major. The 22-year-old Feng, the only player from China on the tour, had the lowest round of the tournament at the right time and finished at 6-under 282. "I am so excited right now," Feng said. "I did it!" Stacy Lewis, bidding to win her third straight stroke-play event on the LPGA Tour, shot a 70 to tie for second with Mika Miyazato, Suzann Pettersen, and third-round leader Eun-Hee Ji. Miyazato shot 69, Pettersen 70, and Ji 72. Karrie Webb, who started the day 1 shot behind Ji, had a 72 to finish at 3 under.

HUMBLE, Texas - Brian Davis and Louis Oosthuizen shared the lead at 11 under after two days of play in the rain-delayed Houston Open. The second round was suspended because of darkness at 7:36 p.m. Friday with about 70 players still on the course. Jeff Maggert, a Houston resident, was at 10 under, but he had eight holes left to play in his second round. The defending champion Phil Mickelson (70), J.B. Holmes (67), Tommy Gainey (67), and Greg Owen (69) finished their second rounds and were 2 shots behind the leaders at 9 under.

TIGER WOODS talked all week about his improved ball control - then it let him down when he needed it most. Woods resembled the Tiger of old over the first three rounds at the Abu Dhabi Championship in the United Arab Emirates, stringing together a trio of rounds below par before shooting an even 72 in yesterday's finale to finish in a tie for third place behind winner Robert Rock and U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy. The 117th-ranked Rock shot 70 for an overall 275 to beat McIlroy (69)
