I gotta chime in here.....This is a NEW course, and these things will take time to eradicate. Also with all the moisture that we have gotten this year, plantlife is reproducing at alarming rates. I have been pulling them off me at Cliff over the last few weeks with the work that I have been doing, and it is simply a matter of time before these areas don't have as many attempts to reproduce as you would like.
This is a NEW course, it will take time to beat down to the likes of a Rosedale where over 1000 people play a week. Once that happens, then you can complain that all the cool places that we have to play are over populated!
I wasn't complaining, I was just offering a suggestion for other players and describing my sheer amazement at the number of burrs I collected. In the future, instead of trying to hit the gap and risk a turnover into the brush, I will be throwing the big hyzer.
