Is the 11th green at Kittansett unique

With the right side of the green wrapping back around the left?  I can't recall seeing that elsewhere.

STEVERINO CURRY!!

AS I LIVE AND BREATH!

How've you been pal?


I guarantee you the first time I saw it I said to myself: "WHOA, where did this come from??" Amazing green alright. I think we've talked about it on this site but not in a long time and not enough.

We (me and Wayne) haven't really seen anything else like it although I should probably not speak for Wayne.

On second thought, why not? I should speak for Wayne, particularly since I just spoke to him and he told me that for his next act he may begin to wear towels on his head, grow a beard and immitate Arabs for some odd reason! ;) I told him I'd buy him a bunch of golf hats to prevent that but he says he really wants to wear towels on his head for a while.

Steve - It has to be. Never seen anything like it.

How do you play this hole from the tips (241 yards!!) to a back right pin??

Now thats what I call a shelf!!

I love that hole, tried to get Von Hagge to copy that green, no luck
Live Jupiter, Fl, was  4 handicap, played top 100 US, top 75 World. Great memories, no longer play, 4 back surgeries. I don't miss a lot of things about golf, life is simpler with out it. I miss my 60 degree wedge shots, don't miss nasty weather, icing, back spasms. Last course I played was Augusta

Steverino:

I wish you would've thrown a few coins down in the various pinnable sections and putted and chipped to them from all over the place for a while!

Let's see if I can get the code right...



I am kicking myself for not taking better pictures of it but the way its cut now it wraps right back around the left side and one of the group made an aggressive putt and ran around the back.  I hit my tee ball to the approach and made a great bump shot that came off the ridge and stopped 8' below the hole.   Tom, that would have been a great thing if we had time.  We did do that on a number of greens at Sankaty yesterday as we had the place to ourselves.

Seems others don't want to play in 40 mph winds.
Cheers,
Steve

Steve, I really like this green.  It is made all the more interesting given that you're hitting into it with such a long club.  If it's windy you'll probably be hitting an interesting pitch for your second.  I would certainly think that it is unique, but I'll leave it to the more experienced to confirm this.

I was out there last year and it immediately reminded me of a Macdonald-Raynor-Banks Maiden green. Once you see the sharp fall-offs on both sides, it looks even more like the work of one of those guys. A very cool design.

Hey Tony,

Does the maiden spiral back in like that?  The right side comes back and in to the left.
