Appropriately Named

My local course has a few holes that have been "named" so to speak for unique features and/or qualities that they possess. Hole14 at Freeman Lake Park is referred to by many of the locals as the silo hole because of the unique concrete structure that must be avoided off the box. There actually used to be 2 of these structures, but one is no longer standing.



Do any of you have any "named" holes at your local courses? What are the unique qualities and features of the hole?

here is a blurb from my review of Brandywine Creek Park in Deleware.

Shots range from a shot in between two trees and along a stone wall (hole 1) to down a hill over a creek and around a wooded area (hole 4 nicknamed the Beauty) to a 666 ft. shot straight uphill (hole 5 nicknamed the Beast).

basket is dead middle of the trees on the other side.

basket is further up, the hill contiues up about twice as high as the pic, and then is haidden behind a large oak.

This is my home course at hole #5. We call this hole "Hurricane Damage" because Hurricane Ike completely changed this hole with the number of trees it took out. Also when they cleaned up the course, it left these huge piles of trees and debris that you have to avoid, or you will spend 10-20 minutes trying to find your disc. I can usually clear it, but if you catch a tree on the way to the basket (and it does happen) your in trouble. Off the tee, you have to go to the right to avoid the stand of tress, and then back left to hit the basket. Its only 277 feet, but you have to really make your shot count because of all the trees.

No worries, I had the same issue!
Go to the UserCP to edit your signature. Type in the text that you want to be your link, highlight the text, and click the little "earth" icon with the link on it. It will pop up a box where you can enter the URL. Just copy and paste the web address into this field, and there's your text link.

I had to ask timg this same question about a week ago...

Where is the basket on this hole, is it behind that large pile of trees that are kinda straight off of the box? I can definitely see that stuff causing some issues. I played a course that had some similar issues due to the ice storm we had earlier this year. There was a little par3 hole, I had a great drive but landed behind a pile of trees like that. What should have been a routine birdie putt ended up a trickly little toss over a brush pile!
