Please list the hole and include 2 screenshots.

Mine would be #7 at Soggy Bottom.  I love the blind tee shot and the approach and view of the lake behind the green.





List yours!

Oooooh, I like this thread.

This is incredibly tough for me. I have a "favorite" hole or two with all my courses, but I think my favorite of favorites is.....#9 at The Timberwolf - Olympia, Washington. A 583 yard uphill par 5. A chance to go for it in two with the right wind. The lighting, the sculpting, all the little things came together nicely on this hole.





Can I also do honorable mentions? Well, I'm going to anyway!

#4 at Lunenberg National...a long par 4 that required a fade off the tee. If that wasn't hard enough...the green is one of the trickiest I have produced. I think it's a hole that you love when you play well, and loathe when you miss that sharp breaking 6 footer for par  :)



#14 at The Canuck Club at Angels Plateau- I love great views off the tee. This one I think is my favorite out of all my holes.



#6 at The Grizzly Course at Panorama Ridge (Work in Progress) is becoming one of my favorites.




I could have easily picked 5 or 6 more, but I'll stop  :)

I was just playing Timberwolf last night after I realized I've never gone low there.

After 2 rounds I realize why - greens are tough and not due to firmness.

In all serious, I think one of my newest holes on Roundabout (6 holes)  [not published yet] is my new favorite. 

But for now, my favorite is 18 on Bailiwick Grand.  When JwFickett approached me to do a course together, I asked to build this hole first.  He then built a beautiful clubhouse for the perfect backdrop for the hole.

Out of the courses, Bushtail Valley Resort, Shivering Pines, Whispering River, Red Diamond, Pawnee Reserve, Halton Beach.... Bailiwick Grand is probably my favorite.

Pfft, Fickett made that one, could use some work.... Just kidding.  9 and 5 are my favorites of his on Bailiwick.

What this thread is going to do is remind us how short of shelf life great courses have.

Bailiwick was/is an amazing course - I don't know if it's just me but it's like once new courses come out I feel like I can't go backwards.

BUT I CAN... AND SHOULD... AND WILL FROM NOW ON

Hole 5, Hoodoo Hills Remastered

Par 4 with a tricky elevated tee shot. Player can hit anything from a 5I to Driver (3W or 5W suggested) depending on winds and which part of the fairway they go for.  Small inlets of water/OB split the fairway into 3 pieces, making club selection key.  The approach shot takes a dogleg to the right for an elevated green.
The backdrop for the approach shot is one of my favorite "eye candy" features I've added to a course.





Hole 14, Happy Yeti Golf Resort

A par 5 that is reachable in 2, if you place your drive as far and right up the fairway as possible, but can be tricky to cut the corner properly.  From here the approach is a real beauty. An uphill shot to a pin that is fun to go at.  Play the slope on the front right of the green to roll your ball towards the left/center pin. Definite eagle opportunity if played right, but a tough up and down or 3 putt if you leave it in a poor position.
