The Farce of the Golf Clubs continues

Whilst the Reporter for St Andrews wind farm considers that golfers would be concentrating on their golf and not overly concerned at the views of a wind farm towering over them, another Reporter commenting on an application close to Gleneagles and the venue for next years Ryder Cup suggests “that while the turbines would not be visible from the PGA Centenary Course on which the tournament will be played, they would have a negative impact on the area”. In both these cases one sees the dead hand of the SNP leadership casting it’s influence. At St. Andrew’s, as previously mentioned, the University has friends in high places and at Gleneagles the aspiration of the First Minister that this vanity project will support his aims for a positive independence vote. Article here. In both cases the application had been refused by local councils.

    St Andrews is Bad enough but have a look at what is proposed for Forfar Golf club currently under consideration by Angus Council application No 13/00825/FULL A 77m to tip Turbine approximately 50m from the 10th Tee. The Golf club advertises itself as “The Best Heathland Course in Angus” !! Not if this application goes through it wont. Mark Twain said that.. “golf was a good walk spoiled”. If this application succeeds it will be a good walk RUINED PERMANENTLY.

    The sooner SNP and its heid honcho are run out of town then the sooner this madness of erecting useless follies aka windmills all over Scotland can be ended. Government has told us the follies will not be erected in inappropriate locations. If St Andrews is considered an appropriate location then no where is sacred. God help us all. Not only will we have follies covering the whole of Scotland we will all be living on the bread line because of the costs imposed on us all to pay for this madness.
