You can't blame the developers for putting a positive spin on things (or can you?).
Quote from: David_Tepper on October 25, 2017, 01:42:59 PMYou can't blame the developers for putting a positive spin on things (or can you?). Now there's a challenge !!! DTWhen you're issuing a press release about creating local jobs it might be an idea to use a local PR company or at least one that doesn't use American spellings and phrases That aside, very pleased to see that they have majored on the argument about the environmental benefits of golf courses in terms of more varied habitats although I note the comment in the papers suggests that the developers expert got a hard time. Incidentally, I note Todd Warnock suggesting that 33 courses have been built on SSSI land in this country (presumably he means Scotland ?). I'm very surprised at that number and can think of maybe a handful. Perhaps what he means is that there are 33 courses situated on SSSI land which is an altogether different matter. It is one thing having a course on land that subsequently becomes designated as a SSSI and quite another to get permission and build a course on land that is already designated. Perhaps it's another claim to go along side the one about there being nowhere else in the country having 2 such quality links courses so close together Niall
Were the new holes at Renaissance SSSI ?
BenInteresting. Which part of Scotland is Rutland Water in ? Off-hand I can think of the following;BalmedieSt Andrews BayMach Dunesand then possibyAskernish ?Durness ?Where then new holes at Renaissance SSSI ?Quite a short list. I suppose you could add in courses on SSSI that had alterations perhaps ? I'm struggling to see how you'd get up to 30 plus but you never know. I'd be interested to see a list if anyone has one.Niall
A tiny aside re removal of Sea Buckthorn.Playing North Berwick a few weeks ago, I/we was/we’re amazed/delighted/surprised to see the massive amounts removed along the dune ridge at the tenth and eleventh holes. It’s really going to look phenomenal when it’s covered with only marram grass.Well done, NB!F.
