Quiz: Name that Hole

Post by migolfer »

Who can tell me on what golf course this hole might be found? And who was the architect?
(hint: it no longer looks like this today, you'd have to go back in time to experience it)

Got the course right! :cheers1:

It is the "Clashing Rocks" hole (#7) at Stone Harbor Golf Club in New Jersey (Desmond Muirhead, architect)
This page shows a view of that hole as it looks now, #7 is on the left: https://www.stoneharborgolf.com/course/hole-by-hole


He was a very eccentric designer, there are probably some other "interesting" designs he has done too.
I first heard about him when I played The Grizzly in Ohio (a collaboration with Jack Nicklaus). That was
an eternity ago! (1980's, roughly)
