Players just remember that it's an uphill hole whether short or long so might as well pack a lot of the uphill fairways into fewer holes. Holes 10 & 18 on Granite and 14 at HSSA are examples packing a lot of upward elevation in one hole.
Very interesting. Never really thought about Par 5's in that light, but now that you mention it,#17 at Iron Hill is an awesome par 5 and all uphill. Not to hijack the thread,but I'd love to get some more discussion about designing quality par 5's.

When they arrive for the first time at the course they will learn it is on the flatest piece of land in the area. At least there are mountain views in every direction.
Kind of like Bijou in Tahoe.

Back the late 80's We'd be playing with Royce Racinowski and he'd park a shot right under the only tree in the fairway, turn around and say, "Played it like a Master."
