Now how does the architect sell this to the client? The Club wants "Tilly" brought back yet the "Tilly" they've always known wasn't what he designed. Do you say "This restores the intent" which may be true but is renovative in nature or do you say "This renovation makes it play like Tilly wanted it to..." yet the work being done isn't anything more than a bit of tweaking to the original hole design? I know what is being said and I agree with it... My question, based on the comments above is how would you approach the club with this idea knowing both what they want to hear and what the reality of what is being proposed MAY be considered as two very different things?
Tom,I understand that and may be guilty of asking the question the wrong way. What I'm looking for is which word someone would use to best describe the proposal cited. Is it, in their view, a "restoration" or a renovation or an amalgam of the two?For me, what a Club decides to do and say is simply that. It wouldn't change my description of what is done. If that would cost me a job so be it. I proposed this real world example that is currently happening because most comments have declared that "restoration" or "renovation" are very specific... and so I was wondering which specific individuals would apply to it or if they'd use a variation, e.g. - sympathetic restoration (phrase I've heard used before).
