Golf Course Fence In Dublin To Be Made Safer
Dublin officials say they are making changes to an iron fence surrounding the Muirfield Village golf course because of injuries caused to deer attempting to jump the six-foot structure.
The fence was erected around the Jack Nicklaus-designed course ahead of the President's Cup tournament this fall. Nearby residents opposed the idea of a barrier and complained after two deer became impaledand had to be euthanized. The club says it will add bars atop the fence to cover the sharp finials. There's still debate about whether the fence is temporary. The club says the six-miles of fence will be taken down and stored after the October tournament, and brought out again next spring in time for the Memorial Tournament. Neighbors say they're worried it will become permanent.
