Will you take on the water?
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.
