From hole 16 30-40% of golfers can get to the tee. Most of those players know to yell Fore and you can see them throwing from the Old pad of 11. Those are facts, not exaggerations. Negligence was what was gonna cause an injury by course designers who do not carefully analyze what the most common mistakes a newbie golfer makes.
P.S. Heads up walking up hole 16's fairway.. Newbie RBH's will be bombing about 1/3 up the fairway
Those may or may not be exaggerations, but calling them facts is an... exaggeration. Everyone is playing this by ear and feel, and no one is doing studies to determine that "30-40%" of golfers can do any one thing.
Saying that anyone that can toss a disc 100 feet and hit someone on 1 is ridiculous, unless that person on 1 also threw their disc 100 feet to the left.
Even if that were the case, then moving the tee to the road would mean that anyone that can throw 120 feet could hit people on 1, and the fairway is angled more toward 1. How is that safer?
