Played craps with Arnold Palmer

I was punching in course info into the Eat Golf Course Directory when this thought came to my mind.

Years ago I was in Mesquite Nevada with a buddy golfing and gambling in the desert. We went into the then Peppermill to gamble one night. The craps table was packed so we figured it was a hot game. When we squeezed in and started playing, the man throwing the dice was non other than Arnie himself!

As it turned out, he was in town designing the Oasis Golf Club and hung out in the casino at night. I wonder if the casino got back all the dough they paid him to design the course at the craps table?
