All golfers can hit the ball... the difference is how far, how high, how straight, and at what trajectory. Although it takes more time and forethought, architects can and should incorporate surmountable hazards, fun strategic options, pleasing visual aesthetics, and a ground game that gives shorter hitters with a lower shot trajectory pathways for play.
Strategy is the essence of the game. It is what makes the game exciting and engages golfers to think...to make decisions, attempts, and to feel the emotions associated with the elation of victory or the agony of defeat. All golfers, whether male or female, junior or senior, or high or low handicap enjoy the emotions of winning once in a while. Indeed, it is the occasional win what keeps us coming back for more. If the elements that provide the challenge are dumbed down, the fun is unsurprisingly diminished.
