Over the years golf has grown, the players have changed, and so did the golf courses. There are no two courses built the same. Every golf course has its own signature hole; for example, Mahogany Run Golf Course in St. Thomas U.S.V.I. has their three holes call the Devil’s Triangle with the last hole, a par three, with its backdrop being the Atlantic Ocean. Hit long and your ball is in the ocean, hit short it is in the ocean; you just have to hit it perfect. This intimidating hole is what makes Mahogany Run one course you have to visit.
There is also another great course with its very own intimidating hole; home of the “PLAYERS” ,the TPC golf course located in Ponte Vedra, Florida. This hole is located at the famous par three 17 hole. This hole is surrounded by water with a couple of slopes on the green making this hole very difficult to make par. The pros who compete at the Players understands this hole is what it’s all about; hit it right the first time. With these hole designs, it makes you wonder what goes on in the architect’s mind. These courses would not be as beautiful and challenging if it were not for the innovative thinking of these architects. They create such plush platforms for us to play golf on. Some architects who have designed the best courses today and in the past are: Tom Fazio, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, and now added to the list with his day view designer course in Dubai is golf’s number one, Tiger Woods. This course is sure to be on PBGT’s list of great courses to play.
