Golf [Course] Nation

I have in my hands an anti-golf courses postcard addressed to the Minister for National Development. It’s part of a campaign organised by Grant Pereira and lists its website as http://www.thegreening.org, but that domain seems to be defunct now. Some interesting statistics stated on the postcard:

Today we have 23 golf courses and 3 driving ranges here. They take up about 1400 hectares (the size of 3 Yishun New Towns) or about 1750 football fields. Golf Courses here represent about 88% of land presently set aside for sports and recreation.

Although I am sympathetic to this cause, it’s not clear to me that constructing golf courses on land that was bought for private consumption constitutes a public wrong.
