Ground Under Repair
Many golf clubs in Ireland are in financial trouble, some are in the hands of receivers, and at least eight have let their golf courses return to nature. These disused golf courses are a symptom of the current economic recession which followed a ten year orgy of borrowing and spending which inflated wages and property prices. Unlike the harsh results of over-enthusiastic property speculations manifest in unfinished buildings, abandoned building sites and scarred landscape the former golf courses allow the landscape to heal itself.
