It is hardly a wild analogy to compare the Camden County borough of Pine Valley to an old Communist-bloc stronghold. Located less than 20 miles southeast of the city where this nation's freedom was born and only three miles from a town named Berlin, this foreboding fiefdom is enclosed by barbed- wire-topped fencing and guarded checkpoints. That level of protection seems incongruous for an 84-year-old borough that occupies barely a square mile just down from Clementon Park & Splash World and which, as of the 2010 U.S. Census, had just 12 residents and 21 structures.

The police department of Pine Valley operates from a small white house with lime-green office walls, where Richard Rauer, the 5-foot-11 police captain with a handlebar mustache, answers the phone. He and his five officers share one squad car. Each wears a light-blue uniform and pants with a gold stripe, and carries a radio and a 9mm Glock pistol. But Rauer's department is unlike any other in the state. Even some law enforcement officials outside New Jersey say they've never heard of one like it: Its job is to protect a golf course - albeit the world's best, according to Golf Magazine - which occupies most of Pine Valley's one square mile and is the reason for the Camden County borough's existence.

A famous customer has ordered two dozen custom-made centerpieces, and the deadline is two days away. "This is how we start: step by step," Kristine Henle-Blank says, a block of mossy green floral foam in one hand, a rectangular design bowl in the other. "We'll use holly from the big holly tree," she tells her five designers-in-training, all of them students at Archway Programs in Atco, Camden County. "Could someone please go outside and bring in the fresh greens?" Henle-Blank stands at a work table inside From the Ground Up, a retail flower shop on the campus of Archway, a private school for special-needs students.

Pine Valley is no longer No. 1. For the first time since Golf Digest magazine began its influential bi-annual rankings of the nation's best golf courses in 1985, the ultra-private club in Clementon, N.J., has been dethroned as the top course in America by Pebble Beach Golf Links, the site of last year's U.S. Open. Pine Valley drops to No. 2. In certain golf circles, where such rankings are awaited with anticipation and debated with gusto, the change at the top will surely send shock waves.

Two of the area's most influential figures in golf for the past quarter century, O. Gordon Brewer Jr. and Jim Sykes, last week were named corecipients of the prestigious Arnold Palmer Lifetime Service Award. The Palmer Award, presented by the Golf Association of Philadelphia, was established by GAP in 1997, during the organization's centennial celebration, to recognize significant and lasting contributions to the game. Both men certainly meet that criteria. "We picked Gordon and Jim because we wanted to sustain a certain standard for the award," said GAP president Craig Ammerman.
