I was surprised at the inclusion of the 17th at Architect's Club. It's a hike from Philly to get there as is Iron Valley. My suggestion to Joe about the 13th at Jeffersonville panned out. I suggested the 17th at Lederach but Joe chose the 9th. Steve,Agree with you on Jeffersonville, #13 is the best hole on the course. As far as Lederach is concerned, IMO, there are 5 better holes on the front nine than #9.Nice picture, I assume that was your drive.
In the end, I think Joe selected 9 of the holes of the 77 I nominated, and about 13 of the 46 courses I selected were represented.Anyone want to guess which 9 holes?
Steve:I quickly reviewed the list -- the 17th at The Architect's Club ?How come they forgot the better 9th hole there ?Also, the listing spreads way south to the greater Baltimore area with Bulle Rock ?Also, no hole from Morgan Hill ? Also, the par-4 9th at Lederach? There are better holes to choose from there in my mind.Joe L needs to get in the field a bit more.
Joe,You got one of two selections correct.I should mention that in a number of cases, I nominated up to three holes on a single course, and in some cases, the hole that was picked would have been my third best. That was the case with both 17 at Cobbs (Geoff and I are in concurrence there) and 16 at Scotland Run.
