Kris,Who woulda thunk it?? Building a handful of golf courses is the cause of all the worlds major ills.

Building a handful of golf courses is the cause of all the worlds major ills.Kalen,He brings up some very interesting and perhaps valid points-he's certainly respectful of the proposed developer.There are a LOT of underutilized links courses in the UK, and courses in the world in general-not sure every remote piece of land should be a candidate for a new remote course.And golf is DEFINITELY not on the fastest path to sustainability, unless you consider ever longer courses, ever faster greens, ever increasing maintenance, ever rising equipment costs, the massive SCALE of nearly all high end modern projects, all steps in the right direction.I'm not on anyone's side here, just think considering contrary points of view(however seemingly extreme) is important.Then I can at least feel better about being a hypocrite
Ian,Sorry you don't like or agree with what you are reading. I gave AMPLE ideas on how to BETTER approach both this project, and the marketing of what ALREADY exists up there. What are you adding to the discussion other than some bleating for me to shut up and go away?Variety is the spice of life. That includes thougjtful opinion. Sorry to disappoint you.Cheers,Kris

Jon,That's ONE species my friend! I said " less capable," with regard to that environment's carrying capacity of numerous, different big game animals.If you'd bother to absorb what I wrote above that line, that remark was tied to the MULTIPLE varieties of higher order mammals of a Yellowstone, or more DIVERSE species environment. Tell me four more high order game mammals that have lived up there NATURALLY in the last 200 years? Sorry champ, ya can't. They have been EXTERMiNATED, or that environment ceased to have the required means to sustain that diversity within that ecosystem.Try to assimilate the context of my overall thoughts, instead of select cherry picking to criticize, for what aims ...I don't know?This topic has lost the plot.Cheers,Kris
Wild boar....careful. WB are big and angry, don't take prisoners and like rooting around including trashing golf courses......and there may well be more of them about than you reckon - http://www.britishwildboar.org.uk/index.htm?map2.html - the meat makes tasty sausages however. 😊Atb
