As beautiful as trees are, and as fond as you and I are of them, we still must not lose sight of the fact there is a limited place for them in golf. We must not allow our sentiments to crowd out the real intent of a golf course, that of providing fair playing conditions. If it in any way interferes with a properly played stroke, I think the tree is an unfair hazard and should not be allowed to stand. - Donald Ross, from "Golf Has Never Failed Me"
Every hole should be a demanding par and a comfortable bogey. - Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
