Default Split Personality Courses

Name some courses that have tremendous disparity in hole types. I am thinking of those that are completely like 2 courses......9 tightly impossible wooded holes and then 9 wide open big arm holes. I want to hear about the extremes not the mild cases. I like when a course throws you a totally different look. I will name a few I have played.

Roland Park in PA- Has tight woods and then wide open fields

Paw Paw in WV- Intense frustrating wooded holes that are countere
d by huge wide open treeless holes. I believe both courses are 9 woods:9 open

Tinicum in PA- despite its rep there are actually only 9 wide open holes here but there are also some real tight lanes on the other 9...not as extreme as the prior 2 choices..but extremely open for 9 holes.

Joralemon Park in NY-Basically its 2 courses over 28 holes....the holes acrsoss starr road transform the course from a pleasant park course to a wooded wonderland

Field Of Dreams in NJ-wildly short and technical and then very wide open and long

A few others deserving mention...Buzzys Creek in NJ, Scarboro in Md, Anson B. Nixon in PA, and Hickory Run in PA...all of these perform like different courses with half more open and then half being very tight and technical.

I like these courses as they off an interesting round between the big arm player and the technical maestro. The Big Arm will be sailing along and then hit the woods and the technician makes a comeback. Vice versa would be the technician trying to establish a big enough lead to ward off the big arm in the latter wider open holes. I just think it's an interesting round and tests your entire game.

My home course is definitely like this. The front nine is more open and flat, and the back wooded and a little elevation.

Miramar Park in Sea Brook, TX is like that. The first 4 holes are tight, and the next 2 are open, then you have two holes that are tight along water,and the last hole is wide open. You have a lot packed into a small 9-hole course.

Another Charlotte area course that's a little like that is Hornet's Nest. It's not completely Jekyll/Hyde, but the front nine is definitely more open than the back.

Heritage Trails County Park in Slinger, WI is a lot like that. The first 8 are flat long & boring, but the rest are still long, semi wooded & some are actually pretty interesting.

Sugaw in Charlotte.
The first 8 holes are mostly in the woods with semi-tight fairways and OB.
The last 10 holes (except 12) are relatively open.
I like it because it is a test of all your skills.
The open holes could be a bit longer, though.
