"Few would dispute that Arizona, with golf-rich cities such as Scottsdale and Phoenix is one of the world's premier golf destinations. Arizona's golf courses are as diverse and spectacular as its landscape. Across the state there are more than 300 courses, From traditional links-style layouts to target courses, Arizona possesses an obscene number of courses to challenge your skills and provide you with some unbeatable vacation leisure."

It looked like a classic phishing scam but was apparently a legitimate survey request.
Go to agree with you about the American driving licenses. Took my original test in the UK in a manual shift car (do it in an automatic and that's all you're licensed for). Hill starts, emergency stops, 3 point turns, reversing around corners, reversing into small spaces, instructors trying to catch you out by telling you to take the next available right just as you come to a one-way street that you can't take, tests done during rush hour through winding streets, and more.
Some years later, took a test in Arizona. A few simple questions I crammed the night before, an eye test (Can you read the letters, sir? Yes, I can. OK, you pass), once round the block in my automatic (taking all right turns) and then reversing into a space I could quite easily have driven in head first and still had enough room for second car. And that was it!
