GUT CHECK

Will you take on the wa­ter?

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

ome peo­ple might call this a Cape hole be­cause, like a ge­o­graph­i­cal cape, part of the land juts into the wa­ter. But I sim­ply call it the sev­enth hole at Ferry Point, a design of mine re­cently com­pleted at the base of the White­stone Bridge in the Bronx, with views of the New York City sky­line. There are many fa­mous holes that re­quire com­pa­ra­ble strat­egy, and I’d bet you’ve played a design like this some­where. No 7 at Ferry Point is a rel­a­tively short hole, only 308 me­tres from the back tees, so a long drive can get you pretty close to the green. But it’s a great risk-re­ward par 4.
