Rather than doing a whole course redesign, it seems that my local country club here in Sandy is doing a wee bit at a time.  Today I saw some work in progress of the Valley Nine’s par-5 5th hole.  Recently they took out the two trademark pines at the corner of the fairway and put in a short right fairway bunker (photo below, right side of fairway) and long left bunkers.
