The one place Mackenzie and Jones felt it was ok to deviate from giving the novice a safe route was on shorter Par-3’s.  Even the high handicap player has the stuff to hit a quality iron shot on occasion.  There is perhaps no place in golf more capable of inspiring the heroic in any player than an elevated teeing ground overlooking an artful green on a finger of land, jutting out into water.
