The Giant's Causeway, a stretch of bizarre volcanic rock formations, is one of Ireland's top tourist attractions. Situated at the very top of Northern Ireland, thousands of tourists a year visit the Giant's Causeway for the wild scenery.

Oh Gawd! Just what the world needs, another flippin' golf course. No, keep it accessible to all, not the elite few. What a waste...turning something natural and beautiful into something grotesque.

Just what the world needs....something as ecologically unsound as a golf course, not to mention where they want to put the horrid thing. Definetely signed.

Send this golfcourse plan to the sand trap and build a nature retreat there that won't harm the natural features and allows nature hikers and tourists to enjoy Giants Causeway while the darn golfers go elsewhere.

The Saudis built a huge indoor ski slope, if you get my meaning.

Golf courses are a waste of land and water. Imagine how much food could be grown on the land that they take up, all for the sake of knocking a ball into a hole.

Really, does anyone really need another golf course? This is an all around selfish and bad idea. I'm guessing there is wildlife there and I am constantly appalled at how people see no problem with invading the homes of other beings although heaven forbid a wild animal should be spotted near people.

It took me several tries but finally was able to sign. It never updated so that my signature showed on the list, however. Hartson's signature was at the top. This particular petition gets to me because I visited this part of Northern Ireland many years ago and it was (and presumably still is) an amazing piece of nature. It looks like the moon's surface right here on earth... a most unique bit of scenery. This is the comment I added:

Don't follow in the footsteps of the USA and allow your country to be decimated for profits. It is not worth destroying your God-given resources for the likes of the wealthy who only want more wealth. Save your lands now, while you still have the chance! I have visited The Giant's Causeway and it was a most spectacular surprise and cause for awe. Don't give it away to commercial interests, please!
