After that it becomes silly and un enjoyable.
I totally agree with you.
I got a great lesson from Alan Chambers at my first world in Poland in 2006, when a shot very tilted upward simply he said: "This is not fun"; this sentence contained everything reasons for to be there or not .
Today this trend at exasperation is unfortunately very widespread and in my opinion it has two reasons.
The first is why some people are naively convinced that more the course is unpleasant and more they become talented; this belief is contradicted by the facts looking at the English reality.
The second reason is a competition between clubs who show to be more "macho" to his course, gaining the reputation of "most difficult course in the world"; "We are tougher than you."
I think this is just ridiculous.
For curiosity I go any where, for the field target I go in England.
See you soon in Weston Park,
