The infamous blind tee shot on hole nine requires a periscope to see if the fairway ahead is clear. The large gap in the forest lures people to aim right down the middle. Unfortunately any shots right of centre will find the hidden pond. I have nothing against blind tee shots (that's just good fun) but hiding penal water on the other side of the hill is just cruel.

We might have to relocate the stop/go sign but that won't happen for a few years. If in the end we don't like the tree I will do what I do best and turn it into chips.
