The thing is the area(maybe 4 acres) that has that plant ONLY has that plant so if we get rid of it there is just an open field. Im interested in the ideas using htis area

These have grown to the size of small trees at the base so doing that would be very tough

Invite the local Fire Dept out for a controlled burn. Those guys like to practice.

Sometimes the bigger they are, the easier they come out. If you have to cut them, do it a few inches above the ground (if you cut at ground level they will pop up and inch or so--from rebound--and will be the proverbial hidden trippers). In 6-12 months the stumps/roots should feel loose with a good kick--they are now ready for a good pick ax swing (or 3) to pop them out. Few better course work feelings than have these guys disappear!

If you are not a pyro at heart, then you are not really a man.

Walked the property with Max Crotts today and I have to say wow there are some cool holes here. Nice Par 5 that is a monster and several par fours with some teeth as well. Still have a few more wooded holes to design but overall I am looking forward to this one. Par from the longs will likely be somewhere around a 60.

May have permission to use 20 more acres of completly wooded property! We will see how things progress could make for a VERY well mixed course. Water, Woods, and Bombs
