Most of the drinking goes on in an indoor/outdoor temporary structure called "The Pavilion". Hundreds to a couple of thousand people will show up just to hang out at the Pavilion with no regard whatsoever to the golf that...
Interesting. I've never noticed any difference in taste.
I think you may be right.
On the topic of affordable dessert wines, here are a couple that I love that aren't always on people's radar. I was introduced to the Yalumba by someone on here several years ago. The Rotti is an American sherry-style dessert wine. The sommelier at Fearings in Dallas recommended it to me. He serves this as their house dessert wine.
