    It has the potential Lefty, but if they keep getting Clayton in for course improvement, they have zero chance of getting to where they aspire to be

    Odd comment considering that Mike Clayton has never had any architectural involvement with Yarra Yarra.

    You did.

    It is. Doak's work at YY over the past 18 months is generally excellent (I'm not convinced he has the 3rd hole or the 10th green right, but certainly both are better than they previously were).

    For a club like Yarra Yarra that has languished in the dark since the mid 1980's, lurching from one incompetent architect to the next (Hartley/Cashmore/Hawtree), perhaps if they had given Mike an opportunity in the mid 90's to address their self inflcted wounds, they would not have wallowed in the abyss for more than 20 years. The extensive tree clearing and restoration of playing widths that Doak has accomplished is a massive improvement to the course and how it looks and plays.
