Many courses in England feature ridge and furrow fairways, a relic of the agricultural practices of up to a thousand years ago.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ridge_and_furrowWhether you get a flat, an uphill, or a downhill lie is a complete lottery. +1and they discourage cart useI guess they could be bulldozed flat. But why would you do that?
He has a slightly downhill lie. I'm three yards short of him with a flat lie. Getting a shot, I hit the green and he comes up short. He thinks that is poor course set up and should be altered.
Ask him to show you where it says that in the Rules.He may be flummoxed to find that there is nothing in there about "the fairway" at all.
