Travesty of the Land

Kevin Allen / H-P staff

A worker uses a bulldozer to clear land Monday at Jean Klock Park in Benton Harbor for three holes of a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. A federal judge is considering whether to stop the work.

"Perhaps some of you do not own a foot of ground. Remember then, that this is your park, it belongs to you," said John Klock, a local newspaper publisher, when he gave the land to the city of Benton Harbor in 1917 in honor of his daughter.

Look, they have ready made sand traps! Talk about cost cutting.

That tree was in a bad spot for my wedge approach shot.

I see they removed "Scotty" the beached whale.

Hopefully they'll have some trails that people that use the park can get exercise they sorely need.
