Abstract:Discusses new equipment's effect on the game of golf. Explains how courses have to be designed with up to six sets of tees to accommodate all golfers. Describes how longer holes result in the need for more irrigation and the possibility for more wayward tee shots. Expresses concern for course liability if a golfer is injured by a crossover shot. Describes how bunker placement is used to combat increased distances and suggests that the golf industry "either roll back distances and slow down the ball or see the game as we know it be ruined."
