REVOLTING DEVELOPMENT

John Strege, GOLF WORLD, September 2, 2005

 

Cardross GC, in the Scottish town of Cardross, 19 miles from Glasgow, is a parkland golf course that opened in 1895 and once hosted the Scottish Professional Golf Championship. But the historic golf course could be in jeopardy of losing its 474-yard 18th hole as a result of irate homeowners threatening to sue because of golf balls invading their property. The rub? The homes are relatively new, part of a development called "The Fairways," described on its website as "a dream for golfers, with the picturesque Cardross Golf Club right on your doorstep." 

Apparently, the doorstep is too close for comfort. The Cardross club already has relocated the 18th tee to help alleviate the problem, but some residents are threatening legal action that could lead to the 18th hole being changed completely.
