World's Shortest par 4............

Has anyone ever heard of a legitimate par 4 hole that is less than 171ft that has never been eagled? We have one at a local private course (Sticky Pines) that I believe is the world's shortest par 4.

How many mandos are we talking here? Two? Three? Only way I can conceive of a hole of that length never being "eagled".

This is ultimately going to end in the classic DGCR "what is par" debate.

Definately needs pics.

I'm curious - if it's never been 2'd....what does the scoring separation look like?

Does it have anything to do with "...smaller than usual baskets"?

I like how the OP designed the course, and listed it on here, but gives contradicting info on the hole distance.

Either way, sounds like a gimmicky hole that belongs at Springwood Players' Course.

I'm thinking if I had a hole on a ledge that was 170 ft vertically almost directly above the tee where the fairway is a trail that spirals around a hill, it likely would not get deuced.
