I agree. When the course was first being laid out, I tried to argue for a more sensible tee location, but they were all, "There's a route! Right there!" Well, yeah, I'm sure the 1000-rated pros might be able to hit that route occasionally... but for 99% of us, a good drive will be far more about luck than skill on that one.
