Thatís some hole position way, way right in the first photo of the par-3 4th!Par 68 with 8 par-4ís over 400 yds. An interesting combination.Looking forward to seeing more.Atb
BenThat's interesting. Sean mentioned in his report that it was a challenging par 68 with a proliferation of strong par 4's and no par 5's and perhaps because of that it lacked variety (Tony refers to it as a slog).Do you think the changes will address those issues ?Niall
SeanIf the club asked the GCA to give an overview and that overview included a safety audit then the result is almost inevitable given the club had already identified the safety issue themselves. There won't be too many professionals who would be cavalier or "self-confident" enough to ignore safety issues and not many green committees either who would think better of a recommendation to make changes to avoid an unsafe situation.Niall
Ben the plan is to include a new Par 5.Rest of post deleted....
SeanYou talk of an auditor but really the gca is a professional, an acknowledged expert in his field. I'd have thought that puts the onus on him/her to flag up a safety issue if they are aware of it or should be aware of it. In other words if they have inspected the whole course and there is something obviously unsafe then saying they weren't asked to highlight safety issues wouldn't absolve them from flagging it up to the club IMO but then I'm not a solicitor and could be wrong.Niall
