  1. There are WAY too many golf courses around here. Most dont have enough members and are supported by the councils. They take much much more than their ‘share’ of groundwater. More than their ‘share’ of public space/countryside. They are ruining the look of the south.

    At least the most boring people on the planet are rounded up in one place.
