I believe Iím talking about hole 14. Removing the trees on the hill left of the fairway would allow that area to be playable. It would be visually pleasing as well. The shot from there to the green would be a challenge. Itís a classic angled Flynn green with fronting bunkers. Free the design that is covered up.
Since Ian has chimed in...Sorry, not architecture related but fond memories....Ian and I used to wager a large scotch whiskey on the rocks to whomever could drive the current 14th green. Hello Mike Malone/Mayday as that is the hole you want the tree removal off the left side hill which would make the hole much more reachable with a driver.Dean Chase, a former President of the club, threw his bag into the pond between the current 16th and 17th holes in a rage after a foozled shot. I think he waded in after hours to retrieve it.James Varney was famous for his "whirlybird" thown clubs after a foozle.I think that one was lodged among tree limbs for years.
