Workers Removing Controversial Muirfield Village Fence
DUBLIN (Maria Durant/Ken Hines) -- Workers are removing a controversial fence from the perimeter of Muirfield Village Golf Club, after months of complaints from neighbors due to the the structure's appearance, as well as its impact on local wildlife.
Removal of the fence began Wednesday, just days after the conclusion of the Presidents Cup Tournament on October 6.
Area residents began complaining about the fence as soon as it was constructed following the annual Memorial Tournament, which was held at Muirfield Village late May and early June.
Course officials decided to install the fence to separate back yards from the course during the Presidents Cup.
Much of the controversy surrounding the fence involved deer who died from injuries suffered while attempting to jump over the structure.
Neighbors also complained about the fence's appearance, which contrasted with the area' s established look, according to critics.
Crews are expected to complete the removal process within the week.
