i'm pretty sure that's exactly what he's saying. what do you think about the idea?



as for course par, i have two questions.

do you think a par 6 hole is reasonable, presuming it was a good, well-designed hole?

what would you think about this possible course:
(7) par 3
(5) par 4
(5) par 5
(1) par 6
total: 72

is that a decent distribution or is it too long?

My question is, what is best practice for measuring distance from the tee to the basket?

Thanks

Hey John... same course (Jacobson Park Blue course).... new problem. I am trying to eliminate the tweener holes on this course. This is one of them. This is a par 4 hole (I believe mostly because of the extreme angle in the middle of the fairway. The hole does not reward the better player and better shot. The teesign is a little off. I would say that the tee to the mando is probably about 125 feet.... the hole then plays downhill to the basket maybe 275. A 1000 rated player normally throw over the trees on a spike.... then has a 120+ foot putt.... putts out. A 900 rated player normally throws through the gap, throws a 200 foot upshot and putts out. What would you do with this hole? My first thought was to move the pad back another 40-50 feet to make it more of a par 4 (the club doesn't want to do this). Second thought was to place the pad closer to the gap and right to make a really tough par 3. Looking for better scoring spread. Thanks!

Third thought would be to shift the pad just right maybe 20 feet to eliminate some of the angle.

John
What do you typically do when hired to re-design an existing course that is heavily wooded ? Are you inclined to use what is already been cleared, or block it out and start from scratch.

This is my solution.... for the above problem:

On the pic above, the green areas are where we made a mistake on hole distance. Yellow circles are current baskets, orange lines are fairway. Blue line is where I made a change in line to new basket, which is blue circle. On hole 8, the new pad is the blue box.

Hi John. Tweener holes came up in a different thread. I know it's been discussed in many articles and in many threads, so I don't know that you really need to respond anything. But I just didn't have a better place to put this graphical analysis of your hole designs.



Selah holes in the 376-525 range:
Lake 9 - Tight tee shot, narrow fairway, anhyzer hook approach.
Lake 14 - Lots of trees.
Creek 12 - Uphill.
