Your front page story [see reference above] was very important to the thousands of people who, over the past 40 years or more have enjoyed their golf at Ruislip.
Now we have an idiotic and totally useless proposal to build a range for families to mess around with a few golf balls at great expense, at the ruination of one of the most used public golf courses in England.
I don't understand Andrew Malin's comments, 'service provided is of the highest quality'.
Top Golf would not need to spend £5million on the range - it's almost a white elephant, it just picks out a figure. 'Widen the appeal of golf to families and non golfers as well as experienced golfers'; has he been reading Alice In Wonderland, and become as confused as those attending the tea party in that book or worse?
No golfers would ever be interested in this type of range, and this ever used word, 'families', would not spend their money on this 'game'.
Finally, the area proposed to be built is on the Green Belt, and contains many rare birds and mammals.
Add also the fact that the entrance and exit road to the golf course is called Hill Lane! It is about four and a half to five metres wide, and getting into and out of Hill Lane is already a major problem for us golfers.
So let us have this £5m new building and treble the traffic. Yes, Mr Malin, it's a really 'wonderful' proposal, isn't it?
Trescoe Gardens, Rayners Lane.
