not quite 721? maybe?... help....

Can anyone find a verifiable 721' hole?

There's this beautiful hole (pictued here cause it's just so damn nice to look at) on RIP'd Big Hogan Dam: Valley Springs, CA. Hole info says 720, but this review mentions#17 being 721ft, as does this March 10, 2011 post from a different website.

Existing New Hogan Dam - West still contains the "Big Dam Hole" hole - but no hole info, pix or nuthin'.

Anyone know the scoop on this hole or have a legit 721 footer?


Tell me you could resist emptying your bag out on this one...


regardess of whether it's 720 or 721, I'm glad this hole's still in existence.

721 or 722

Well, it's a stretch, but the holes in Europe are measured in meters, 721 feet converts to 220 meters, and hole 9 at
Sloterpark in Amsterdam, Netherlands

is 220 meters.

The trouble is, 220 meters converts back to 722 feet, which is what shows on DGCR.

Besides, just look at all the cute bunnies!



Anyway, let's face it. When measuring holes of this length, no one can be accurate to within a foot. So, what we're really looking for is whether there is a hole (somewhat arbitrarily) listed as 721 on DGCR. Our only hope is the alternative pins, and I don't know how to search for those.

^^^You went the same route I was looking into (metric). Nice job. Because the pictures are great for both of the above holes, I vote they count. What do y'all think: very close with an inspiring picture? Mark one YES.

^ nice find, and that's our 7th country outside Canada and the U.S. Yes, the bunnies add a nice touch, probably help to entice kids into the game. I think that'll suffice for 721' Any protests??

I was kind of thinking that myself. I mean, how accurately have these things been measured?


Anyway, I think most of the low hanging fruit's been picked off this tree, and we're gonna have to dig around for some of these long ones.


722' anyone?

The reviews for the Sloterpark course talk about homemade and custom-built.
