Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Muirfield Avoids Controversy; Will Install Temporary Fence
Listen to the Story
Muirfield Village Golf Club has decided to install a temporary fence for the President’s cup this fall instead of a permanent fence it was considering.
Muirfield homeowners got what many would say is good news from the homeowners association and the golf club.
As described in an email, the fence will be the “black, metal and five feet tall…and see-through.” Muirfield residents can pay for a so-called “gate cut” that will give them access to the golf course from their yards.
Homeowners association general manager Walter Zeier said a temporary fence is a better fit for the neighborhood.
“A lot of people were very upset and there was a lot of misinformation out there, and I just want to thank the tournament, the golf club and the residents for being able to work together and come out with a solution I think is in everybody’s best interest. And at the end of the day I think it’s a win-win for everybody.”
Zeier expects the temporary fence to go up sometime in mid- to late-summer. The fence will be used for future Memorial Tournaments.
The possibility of a permanent fence sparked outrage from residents. Many residents signed an on-line petition and a Facebook page railing against the proposal.
