The next time you golf at Pawleys Plantation you will notice something missing, a beautiful very large old oak tree that was part of the original design. This tree was destroyed because it was in your way. At the famous Augusta National golf course the Eisenhower tree still stands. You are obviously more important than the president of the United States because when President Eisenhower requested this tree be removed because his golf shot hit it Augusta said “NO” so I hope you feel important.
If you hit the perfect shot this tree died for you and if your aim is a little off this tree died for nothing. It is a loss that can never be recovered. The next time you are in the fairway keep moving because anything that gets in the way of “the perfect shot” is at risk.
Let Pawleys Plantation know how much you appreciate what they did for you and while you are at it why not request that they grass in all the sand traps, fill in all the ponds, level all the hills, and fill in the marsh because nothing is too extreme for “a good golf score.”
