Open holes with some type of OB. Open ripper holes.6Tight tunnels, open to wooded gap holes, open surrounding by trees, and wide open holes with OB663545655664424466664
Shot Length Variety (6 = Holes over 450’ and down to around 200’. Elevation adding more or less distance for more finesse than power. Uphill holes adding more power than perceived distance. Relatively tight fairway width to length ratio (i.e. 5-10%). Plus a few true par 4 and 5 holes with defined 350’ landing zones or mega distance, NOT just long open fields)6715' downhill to 200' thru a 10' wide tree lined tunnel.

Multi-Shot Holes (6 = Not a pitch and putt. Good drives needed due to rough or landing area. Multiple drives or carefully executed upshots (due to risky greens) are required. Few true par 4/5 holes from Blue and higher tees. Risky greens may turn one missed putt into 3. OB or obstacles forcing risk management for lower scores.)6Require carefully placed drives, or multiple drives, and precise upshots due to risky greens. Gold tees require drive placement.553446544554425566654
Risk VS Reward / Punishment (6 = Risky greens, drastic terrain/elevation changes increasing risk of rollaways, thick rough, mandatory flight paths, defined OB, obstacles near pins)6Thick rough, many elevation changes, risky greens with slopes and obstacles, OB roads and water, harsh wooded rough5534No elevation near greens, only occasionally in set of trees, mostly wide open35656444534564665
