To many residents and local environmentalists, Quail Hill is something of a field of dreams, a bucolic sliver they have twice voted to preserve. To the owners of neighboring Strawberry Farms Golf Club, including former Angels star Doug DeCinces, a slice of the hill parcel is key to expansion plans. The dispute is growing as the City Council considers putting the fate of the hill on a citywide ballot--for the third time since 1988.

Long before grass was planted at Strawberry Farms Golf Club, Doug DeCinces was on the course with a driver in his hands. DeCinces, a former Angel infielder and the leader of the partnership that owns the course that will open to the public Friday, went from hole to hole as each one was being shaped, hitting hundreds of shots off bare dirt to determine the playability of the course. He was pleased until he reached the finishing hole, a par-four that sits above the basin behind Sand Canyon Dam.

Is there any suspense that can be wrung out of the PGA Tour the rest of the way? Will John Daly swear off chocolate? Will Tim Finchem admit that the Tour Players Assn. has a lot of good points after all? Will the USGA say it was just kidding about that club-testing thing? Will Davis Love III, P.H. Horgan III and Tommy Armour III find out they're related? Supposedly, there is one suspenseful thing--the PGA Tour player of the year.

Strawberry Farms Golf Club joins the fight for the Orange County golfer's dollar when the course, located in the hills of Irvine west of Interstate 405, opens Friday.

In this case, it will cost $85 Monday through Thursday and $125 Friday to Sunday.
