Neil and RichThe archetype in my mind are his bunkers on Pebble 8, but even after truing up that old photo it seems clear to me:a) originally this effect existed on the hole;b) today the effect has been eradicated.Doesn't today's green look flatter and "benched" into the hillside, plus the bunkers more "fighting" the slope rather than lying on it:Maybe it's down to the angle of the current photo, or the effect of the trees. But I don't think so!Mark
Thanks for the reply David.Mackenzie certainly had that ability to select and then communicate with his partners, the end results are testimony to that.
I just wanted to confirm with those who know the club, is the area I have within the red line below an accurate capture of The Valley Club?It has always confused me trying to work out what was The Valley Club and what was the adjoining club seeing as what seems to be the western parcel of The Valley Club is marked as Birnham Wood. But going by the map David posted, I'm thinking it definitely isn't.
