Thanks for the updated tour Sean.
I think you''ve got it pretty much spot on. The flow and balance of the course is vastly improved, we have removed the three 'weakest' shots on the course in the tee shots on 10, 14 & 15 and the crossing, the main driver for the whole project is much safer, even without the proposed tunnel....I'm not sure it will ever get built. So overall a big success.
I've got a few minor gripes as you know, with the main one being two of the three news greens might be considered abit plain by Liphook's standards, but I know that is a fine line to walk when working on a course like this.
Yes you could have recreated the old 14th green on the 15th and it would have made for a good hole but the 15th green is sneaky good and an original so it's seems abit unnecessary to replace it. I am little disappointed they didn't try to use the 14th or some of the more original features from elsewhere on the course as inspiration for the new green designs though. I think the valley cut into the front left of 14 could have been used in some form on one of the new greens.
