It looks like one tee on 18 could see the green and the further one right couldn't. Regardless, do you think the hole would be better if the sightline was opened up?
DuncanThanks for the reply. There is certainly a precedent for making areas around public paths OOB, especially if guys are whacking over trees blindly....which really is an argument for removing the trees if safety is truly an issue. Its almost always best to offer two-way sight lines for the sake of safety. A sign at the start of the path on golf property wouldn't go amiss either. I am somewhat surprised this hasn't already been a strong consideration by the club. Once a safety issue is flagged, the club has a duty to mitigate the situation or face dire consequences should something awful happen.If the trees cannot be cut because of preservation orders etc, then if safety is a real concern, maybe the tees should be moved further right so people on the path can be seen?Ciao
Thank you Duncan and ATB for a fantastic and educational tour! My wife and I played a round here several years ago and I still vividly remember each and every hole; surely a sign of great design when the memory remains intact over time. We also found Buxton to be quite a charming spa town. I am quite curious as to why the Club’s crest has a snake in it though?
