For years, the design of the golf course from the women's tees has suffered from an "afterthought" attitude that lacks the creativity, aesthetics, and same compelling strategy and elements of play that makes golf engaging and fun from the men's tees. In an effort to keep play moving along for the shorter hitter, architects have often removed hazards, or put them out of reach, leaving behind a dull, watered down game. Another even more thoughtless action is to design blind hazards, lengthy forced carries, or insurmountable hazards such that the game is so difficult and frustrating that the shorter hitter gives up, goes home, and never comes back.
