I have a feeling at these length, we're hitting quite a few "signature holes..." we've certain;y been seeing some noce ones:
West Lake Park: Davenport, IA
Hole 5: This looks like a fun hole!
White (long):


Can a local please update Hole Info as far as water in play? Obviously water's in play here, but a look at the course map seems like it could be a factor on as many as eight different holes... and none of the holes indicate water. Just seems someone familiar with the course should take that on, (rather than a DG nerd who's never played the course and is just looking at the course map. )

I updated it... I did not include hole 1 because even though there is risk of rolling into the water, you really need a terrible break or a terrible shot to get there. I guess I'm not sure what all defines "in play".

That picture above is of the short tee. The long tee is a totally different beast. Unfortunately the long tee is aimed in the wrong direction which leaves you virtually no run-up if you want to play the aggressive (and very demanding) shot on your first drive.

Wow, that was fast! I just clicked the link and saw all the water, and thought, "I swear there was nothing there before... I must be losing my mind."

If a terrible break or terrible shot will put you in the water, the water is in play.

Backfilling: a 721' was added.

#17 New Hogan Dam West in Valley Springs, CA


I think that leaves 736, 754, 758, 766, 769, 781, 791, 806, 809 unfound.

Now, where were we?

^ Excellent work Mr. West! Here's to the virtures of diligence and persistence!

Still no hits at 828 or 830 ft (or 252 and 253 meters for that matter), and that's even with checking "Pin Position: B and C)...
That brings the missing length list to eleven: 736, 754, 758, 766, 769, 781, 791, 806, 809, 828, 829.

830'

Sandy Creek Park: Athens, GA
Hole 1:




FWIW - of the next several distances 833, 838, and 841 don't look promising, but I there's stuff out there for the other distances. Maybe someone can scrounge something up for one of them?
