Tree Removal Key To Restoring Classic Courses Designs

Playing with the Florida Hickory Golfers means appreciating older course designs, particularly those of Donald Ross. But do those courses ever feel a bit tight to you?  Like maybe the trees are invading the fairway a bit too much?  You are not imagining things.  The website of the Donald Ross Society has republished an interesting article on how tree removal is a key aspect of restoring classic old courses.  They even provide some examples from courses like Mimosa Hills and the Roaring Gap Club to illustrate the changes.  It’s an eye opening piece and reassuring – you’re not the only one who thinks there are too many trees between you and the hole!
