Please vote for your favorite. You have till EOD Sunday. Anyone can vote, not just people who have played the holes. What I do ask of people who have played either of the holes is to advocate strongly (or speak against it) why you believe this hole deserves some love.

Happy voting!

As seen at many of his best designs, Flynn was a true admirer of the playing characteristics of the Redan hole and here is The Country Club's version. A draw at the tree that has shed most its leaves is the perfect play as the tee ball will hit and trickle down the right to left slope toward the day's hole location. Note the grassing schemes by Mabie that are starting to lend The Country Club great texture.

Huntley Division, #7 Seed, CC of Fairfield, Hole #9, 200 yards

At least six of Seth Raynorís designs routinely vie for inclusion among the world top one hundred golf courses, making some modern architects sniff that his work garners too much attention/praise. After all, they argue, the man repeated numerous design themes throughout his designs. To them, this is a sign of weakness as perhaps Raynor was running low on original ideas and concepts of his own. Such comments probably are born out of jealousy, primarily at the fact this engineer was afforded the opportunity to work on so many excellent sites. Fairfield is, of course, one such site and indeed, the author looks at Raynorís appreciation of the Redan as a blessing. Take here at the ninth for instance. Without a preconceived desire for such a right to left falling hole, what architect would have seen that this abrupt hillside presented the perfect opportunity into which to bench a Redan green? Probably not many and one of the worldís three or four great Redans would never have been built. Hepner pronounces the ninth to be Ďas strong a Redan as you will ever find as it features a great angle and no background, plus the most uniquely contoured approach area that Iíve seen.í

Fairfield here as well.

Perhaps its just the camera angle, but the hole at TCCPP isn't looking very redan'ish with such a teeny sliver of fairway for the run-up shot.
