Course Reviews

Shot Maker's Hall of Fame

Every course has a few holes that stand out from rest. What makes a great hole? Perhaps one that require a little more thought by giving you more shot options from tee to green or it could be the routing over a spectatular piece of land with outstanding vistas offering thought provoking risk/reward opportunities. Is it a grip-it-and-rip bombers design or one where you need to plot your way to the goal of par. What ever the case may be below you will find a collection of holes from the courses reviewed that we feel are worthy of selection to the On The Tee Shot Maker's Hall of Fame.
