Lets not assume open holes. Also, lets not assume the area doesnt presents itself that way naturally where these type of distinct areas are present.

The first couple responses have made some assumptions that weren't part of the question.

If there were small ponds that dotted a fairway instead of calling them island OB holes would that change your thought process?

What if the question was, are you ok with a fairway having small ponds the player has to avoid?

Do you dislike these type of areas on ball golf courses?

I do understand the "gimmicky" feel. Do you think that starts to feel gimmicky on ball golf courses? Should I design holes on a ball golf course in a way that holes only use these type of ob islands sparingly if possible?
