Top 18 holes in Kansas City, "KCFDC Gold"
« on: October 16, 2012, 01:11:01 PM »
Alright, here's my idea. We list the top 18 holes from courses/setups that are apart of the KCFDC in the year 2012. For example; Hole 1 at Water Works is going to be Hole 1 for "KCFDC Gold" This is because I cant think of a better Hole 1 in the city, let alone on many courses that matches our WW's #1. The hole on the course much match the hole for KCFDC Gold. It aint gunna be easy.. Lets all work together and hash out the next 17. Only KCFDC courses, and only from set-ups of 2012. I'm sure a Swope Gold hole will surface.. anywho, be creative, lets hear it for our courses!

KCFDC Gold

1. Water Works Park, Long
Every putt, every time.
PDGA #50650
KCFDC #831

Although I love #1 at WW, I am also partial to #1 @ Cliff, but since I want to re-number it, I am going to give you #1.....

That being said, I really think about #2 at WyCo as probably one of the more picturesque holes for aesthetics of the game, and in contradiction, looking at all other courses, I am uncertain that a #2 is better, though Down Under #2, and Cliff Drive do come to mind....

#2 Island hole at PC. Nothing else like it. and possibly #3 Cliff I would have to think about all the #3 holes though but that is a front runner.

WyCo #14 LONG across the pond is my fave in town (eagle/birdie-able with 2 GREAT throws)...though betting WW #14 would get more votes due to its inherent panoramic view - especially once the leaves fall.

#2 at young is tough but I wouldn't want that to by my Hole #2 on a "gold" course. #14 at Wyco is awesome. I'm with Doc on this.

#3 at Blue Valley (BIG) is better than #3 at Cliff....though #3 at Rosedale always seems to have my number, and I used to love it more when it was freshly chipped with pine needles in the past (many moons ago), I also love the risk/reward on PC and SMP for #3...long at Swope on #3 is very good as well....Down Under #3 in the long placement is TOUGH, and when people get 2's there, it screams excellence.

SO #3 is a toss up in my mind.

Are we talking gold as in fun to play, as in the marquee hole you look forward to throwing, or gold as in challenging and provides scoring separation? #3 at BV would be the most challenging, but far from the most fun. That hole sucks to play.

I'm with Tracy, its a difficulty level thing, with aesthetics being one of the final deciders. If a touring pro, or anyone else comes in from out of town and they want to know our top 18 holes; This would be the list for them!
Every putt, every time.

I really like 4 long at Cliff. So much work went into that hole and it's one of the coolest from any teepad in the city. I think I like it better than 6, but a close runner up.
