I believe it is true that if you learn on a tight course keeping the line is much easier.
I have talked to Larry Leonard and most of the courses in the SouthEast are wooded.
And many top players come out of areas of the country that are more wooded.
I believe KMac will also attest to this.
So on that note most OK players are at a disadvantage
Most of our courses are more open.
The exception is if you are playing in the wind
and the other person just can't handle the wind.
The other thing is most casuals usually stay far away from the wooded courses.
So here lies the problem.
Do you want more players overall or do you want your core players to be better?
Been discussed many times over just thought I would bring it up again.
