真/CURIOSO : GARY PLAYER ON GOLF COURSES

“We have to stop making golf courses of 7,600 yards because, first of all, we are running out of water in the world, and secondly, machinery and golf carts cost a living fortune, ” Gary Player says. “Fertilizer poisons golf courses. Members hate long courses. All you do when you make a golf course long is to make it hated from every possible angle. There are so many magnificent courses in the world today, but they’re changing them and spending hundreds of millions of dollars to make unnecessary changes because of modern technology. Let the amateur have all the technology in the world, but the professional golfers…stop. Cut the ball back 50 yards tomorrow. Stop the long putter and the belly putter tomorrow. Stop building golf courses over 7,000 yards.”

– Gary Player as told to South China Morning Post
