18 architects chosen. Far more interesting than the choice of holes. Who is the most surprising omission?
I havenít played BlueJack National but how would you fit a hole the Tiger designed on this list. Of course this in no way requires that you kick off the architect of the corresponding hole. But you will have to reshuffle and kick someone off. Lester George also sends me a Christmas card every year. So I wouldnít mind seeing him get some love.

No, not my choice, but Ran's:https://golf.com/travel/dream-18-best-holes-last-44-years/Of course, he kept it to 18 different architects to be politically correct, and by keeping the numbers the same for a true eclectic 18, it was inevitable he would have to make some unconventional choices to fill in the gaps. And because it hasn't been done before, there was no peer pressure to select a few of the same holes everyone else does.But I did not think he would come up with a list where I wouldn't have picked ANY of the same 18 holes myself. I'm not certain if that's a good thing, or not.
Ran's list is a disaster on several fronts. Nonetheless, speaking only to the omission of Lester George and a hole from Ballyhack (which Ran said was the best course in the Commonwealth of Virginia), I would contend the 2nd hole and the 12th hole should be in consideration for a list such as this.
