This is half of the problem with the garbage at Southwoods(the other half being the people that throw it there). This alone will not look well to the neighbors that are walking through the park and they see garbage laying all over. Plus it would be nice to have a neighbor hood 18. whats the problem with supporting 18 anyhow? If your going to do it you might as well do it right.

"18" is what is putting us at odds with the neighbors and an adversarial position with them is the last thing we want. Having an 18 hole course thrust down their throats is going to make them look for problems, blaming the course for every negative event that happens in the park and no amount of good will we promote will change their minds.
How about going ahead with the 9-hole plan, concentrate on ecologically sensitive design and construction practices, let people get used to the course and realize it's a good thing. At that point, if it seems like the right thing to do, an expansion can be proposed.
