Reader “Barry” has some fine suggestions as part of my rebuttal to Ian Cruickshank’s piece in Score Golf. Ian’s suggestions include: 16th at Cataraqui, 15th at St. George’s, 9th at Toronto, all of which are great golf holes at private clubs. Stanley Thompson aficionado has a fine suggestion and says Cruickshank should have included the 8th at Uplands, a 232-yard par three monster that has long been regarded as among the best holes in Canada.[photopress:uplands1.jpg,full,alignright]
As for my thoughts, how about the 18th at Thomas McBroom’s Firerock in London, Ont., a majestic downhill par four made tough by the uphill approach shot to a steeply canted green. Great stuff.
Any other thoughts? Bring’em on and I’ll post them as they come to me.
