Jets may make golf course unplayable -- Celeste Robins

Referring to front-page article "Renovations underway for TPC Wisconsin" in Tuesday's Wisconsin State Journal, I wonder what the PGA Tour players will think about having to play with the F-35 fighter jets taking off and landing in close proximity?

These jets may be significantly louder than the F-16s that are at Truax Field in Madison now. This is a toxic level of sound, even according to the military's own environmental impact statement. The worst levels are at takeoff and landing.

I imagine this would throw off anyone's level of playing, let alone for a championship match. Then of course, children are in schools and playing outside in the affected area.

This noise toxicity will affect learning, playing and development for everyone in the area.
