Activity Idea: Golf

Many golf courses have historically been established in wooded settings, the trees offering both ambience and hazards to the course.
 

A full 18-hole course will entail a considerable land-take.

Planning permission will be required for a change of land-use and it will now invariably be difficult to obtain such permission for the large-scale felling of trees, particularly if this involves ancient or native woodland,
