An investigation has been launched into allegations an exclusive golf club felled 36 protected trees to improve the views of a lake from the club house.<br />
<br />
Residents living in £1m homes that back onto Parkstone Golf Course in Dorset were horrified to find the clump of mature pine trees had been axed without warning.<br />
<br />
The 70ft tall trees provided privacy from golfers playing the first hole of the prestigious club and shelter from the wind.<br />
<br />
Now players can look straight into the large detached homes close to Poole Harbour.<br />
<br />
Furious homeowners claim members at the £1,725 a year club had been unhappy the trees obscured the view of the course's large lake from the veranda of the club house.
