Postby WAS » Sun Mar 28, 2010 6:21 pm

i would say hole 15 at the crucible would be a nice one to think about as well. with that creek snaking through the whole fairway, it can't get any better!

I hate to disagree, but 15 is one of the worst holes at The Crucible and no where close to the signature hole. I would say 2, 3, 6, and 14 are the signature holes at The Crucible. Personally 3 and 14 are my favorites out there.

I just think that this course requires so much skill to shoot well. Throwing in a hole that requires a high level of luck doesn't seem to fit. I guess it's not a terrible hole, just not good for this course.

I think Toccoa's hole 1 is more a signature hole. A 20' putt with that drop-off looming behind is a daunting putt. I also think that Hole 1 at Central for the AO is a great hole - a lot of risk reward, but our signature hole is 6, 12A to B is good too. Interesting list - there are a lot of courses that I need to play...

I would say Sequoyah Park hole number 11 is the signature hole for this course....that is why it stays in the long position for the most part.

Very fun. I'd say it's the signature "short" course, and I like all the uphill shots in the woods.

Yes ERP's signature hole is #4, whether anybody likes it or not. 16 is long, brutal, and unforgiving, but that doesn't mean "signature" to me.

If you think 4 at ERP is the signature of that course you are a little crazy. It's a hole with some odd things in the middle of it but that does not reperesent or show what that course is like. There aren't even that many trees around 4 other than that first gap.

My vote would be 6. It has elevation, nice lines to look at to the basket and is a hole that can make or break a good score on the front 9.

obviously you haven't played the new position. Easy two now. How does that make it signature?

Just in case anyone is confused, the discussion here about "signature hole" does not mean that you should sign the basket on that hole.

I think hole 18 was supposed to be the signature hole. But the really nice thing about ERP, is that every hole is so distinct and introduces it's own challenges.
damn..., that is one fine piece of plastic.

It all just depends on ones definition of "signature" won't it?

Same reason they make different flavors of ice cream, so everyone can enjoy their own opinion.

And who says it's always an easy 2? It might be for you because you play out there all the time. For someone who has never played the hole it is far from an "easy" 2. What if it's a little windy that day? Have you made a 2 every time since they moved the basket a whole 10 feet back?

I think there's probably more than one definition of "signature hole", and that different holes might qualify based on those different definitions. In one sense, a "signature hole" would be the hole that's most unique, distinctive, readily identifiable, etc., on the course -- the hole that makes you instantly say "I know where that is" when you see a picture, or the hole that people use as a quick way of identifying the course: "Oh, right, ERP is the one with that hole with the old trailers on it". Any hole that has a universally recognized nickname has to be a candidate for "signature hole" status. By that standard, hole 4 at ERP certainly qualifies. That might actually be the older, and more common, meaning of the phrase -- a "signature", after all being a unique identifier.

But in marketing and media, "signature hole" on golf courses has come to mean the most aesthetically appealing or interesting hole on a course, regardless of its qualities as a golf hole or how much it's representative of the rest of the course. In that sense, I'm not sure what would be considered the "signature hole" for ERP. I suppose a case could be made for hole 3; when the trees and kudzu are in full foliage, it's more open and visually interesting than most of the other holes, there's an unquestionably valid fairway, albeit with trouble waiting in every direction (including up and down) for bad shots, and it's long enough and requires enough control through the middle of the fairway that almost no one can park it from the tee.

ERP may have too many options to agree on which one is the signature hole. Of the permanent courses in Georgia, however, there is an argument for calling it Georgia's signature course.

Hole 18 would be such a super sweet signature hole if about 10 trees were taken down. Then again that could be said for hole 9.

If you were to define GA signature hole as a reflection of the state and its golfers I would have to say that wills park # 1 is the signature hole because: its been changed more times than I can remember, it conflicts with other activities in the park and the course itself, it is poorly marked and need a local to tell you exactly where to begin, and everyone has ideas to make it better but nobody does anything about it!. If that isn't indicative of GA's signature hole then I don't know what is?

A lefty might think ERP #6 is an easy two. A strong right hand flick might do it. If all you have is a backhand, it could be an adventure. Doable, but not a gimme.

Georgia's signature hole is the Flyboy hole that shoots over the lake on the 2nd (hopefully) shot to the basket out on the peninsula. It used to be #2. If played well or played poorly, you will never forget that shot.

hole 3 at erp isn't pleasing personally it doesn't damage my game but its definately imo not anywhere near the signature hole of erp.

Might want to change what you have as Wills #12 to Wills #18, or do you mean to say that the "signature" hole at Wills is new #14, the 350-something par 4 with almost no fairway? I've got nothing at all against that hole, but I would say good old 12, now 18, is still the "signature" hole at Wills.

I'm also not sure which hole at NOP would be "signature." The Par 5 would be a candidate, but there may be a few others that would give it a run, especially once the layout is finished.

I belive that 9 should be the signature hole. Once the leaves start coming in the hole will be very pleasing to look at and i still have seen the b placement but im lookin foward to it.

There are so many horrible courses in Georgia I think it would be better just look for a good hole in Georgia. It has to be just one of the holes at Flyboy I suppose. Only a couple more courses could even be in the running.

With the tight fairway over the creek and the creek being in play for almost the whole way, #18 (old #12) has got to be Wills signature whole. #9 will be quite attractive in summer and fall but Wills has always been about hitting your lines and staying out of the creek. #18 has more opportunities to punish the errant throw than #9 and that should be the criteria for a "signature hole" in my opinion. I mean Lake Russell's most scenic hole is #10, on top of the hill looking at virtually whole course, but its just a big downhill hyzer and hardly a signature hole. I would disagree with Lake Russell's signature hole being #13 as it has no dramatic elevation change. #15 would be more indicative of the rest of the course as well as being an attractive hole.

I have to say, I think the only truly horrible course is one I can't play. I've played bad courses, and in Georgia, but not plenty of them...
