Cable Magnate, Great Lawyer...

... and Golf Architect. Who knew?

From today's Telegram feature, the Weekly Golf Report (which, despite the name, has not in fact been appearing weekly), comes the following bit of purple prose, which seems to have been written a couple of seasons ago:
When spring is in the air and you are getting a fever for the fairways, one course that always comes to mind is The Willows at Holyrood.


Opening its doors in the spring of 1997 to the public, the Danny Williams and Robert Walsh designed course has been noted as being one of the province's most scenic nine holes, as well as the province's toughest nine holes.
The last time Himself was mentioned in a daily newspaper in connection with golf, it was in a special by Ian Cruickshank in the Toronto Star. The travel writer had the good fortune to just happen to run into the Duffer in Chief Himself, while the Toronto Star had the good sense to disclose that "[Mr. Cruickshank's] trip was subsidized by Golf Newfoundland & Labrador."

Golf Newfoundland & Labrador, in turn, is subsidized by, well...

It is deeply discourteous and offensive to call Premier Danny Williams a magnate. Stating that is to cast him in with all the previous fraudsters, hucksters, gangsters and impostors that have plagued, pillaged and plundered our beloved Newfoundland and Newfoundlanders.

On the contrary, Mr. Williams is an entrepreneur.
