American Society of Golf Course Architects notes that longer also means wider

 

The American Society of Golf Course Architects, in its ongoing analysis of the impact of technology on the game of golf, is equally concerned about the increasing width of golf courses, as well as the length needed to handle the “long ball.”

 

ASGCA architects project that at least 20 percent more space is now required to design golf courses that will accommodate today’s high-tech equipment and balls. The additional land acquisition, construction and maintenance costs must then be passed along to the course owner and player, and the ASGCA points out that the public already is objecting to the higher costs associated with golf.
