Changes to the 7th hole include:
- Bunker alterations.
- Rebuilt tees.
- Altered fairway perimeter.
- Expanded green pad.
- Tree removal.
- Cart path updates.
One of the qualities of a good Architect is seeing the details that we sometimes don't see. In this 'existing' picture we can see that the cart path comes well into view as we look down the fairway, taking away from the beauty of the landscape. In the plan, they call for the path to be moved to the right, allowing space for a new tee while also shifting the path away from the sight line of the hole.
I find it interesting looking at these before and after pictures, flipping back and forth to see the changes. You may notice as I did that with our current view, our eyes are either drawn to the path on the right or the large expanse of sand on the left, but not down the fairway. With the proposed view, my eyes are drawn closer to the center to of the hole.
