Weasel Tracks,
Got to love the bit about the "public service" removing those
confounded multiple golfballs! Something you learned in a Zen
monestery no doubt?
Your point about the pesticide use is well taken though. However, the
particular site was in an area where there was no grass. It was the
repository for the sand they use in the hazards which goes to further
illustrate my observation of disturbed ground (not in the sand but on
the ground where it had been leveled with a cat).
