Most uphill and downhill holes
« on: July 29, 2022, 08:21:53 PM »
If thereís already a thread on this, feel free to link Ė I couldnít find it myself. Here in the Bay Area, number 6 at Round Hill is about 135 feet uphill, and number 18 at Chabot is about 220 feet downhill. These are both according to Google Earth elevations at the tee and green.


I know there are some crazy downhill ones out there, but it seems like there has to be limit to how much uphill a hole can really be. What are some other standout ones, either uphill or downhill?

Matt -

Have you ever measured some of the holes at the Presidio? The elevation change from the 16th tee to the 17th green has got to be substantial.

I remember a couple of VERY downhill holes at Telluride GC.

No. 1 at Tilden Park in Berkeley is extreme uphill and the only hole I have ever hit a 3 wood off the tee to GAIN yardage.
Also at Chabot no. 9 the par 3 is one of the biggest drop shots I have ever played.
Stonetree in Novato has a long very uphill par 5 and some pretty good changes in elevation.

Mt. Shasta Resort has a lot of elevation change, mostly on 1,9,10,18 if I remember.
Silvies Valley Ranch Haskins 18 "guarantees" a long drive (unlike me and you hit the mogul jump and the ball rolls back).

Shoutout to The Ranch Golf Club in Southwick, MA. Two par 5s - 9 and 16 - play down former ski hills.


I think I hit driver-pitching wedge into 16 once. It's a 618-yard hole.

How could I forget a few holes at Galen Hall?!


The 17th/18th are especially uphill. Most of that is made up by the downhill 2nd.

I have never seen anything more uphill than Craigie Hills 3rd.

The third hole at Northland is a 380yd par 4 that plays 100' uphill. Even after good drive it is hard to believe how much you have left.

#1 at Southerndown is pretty steep,.....especially when you send your son/caddie down from the green to the tee and back when you think you've misplaced your pin sheet...later found in back pocket.

#1 at Painswick.  It walks a lot longer than the yardage because you have to tack back and forth.

I would note that itís easy to get numbers for these. Just go on Google Earth, click on a point, and it shows the coordinates and also the elevation.  :)

And the fifteenth goes down the same hill at 380 yards.  A friend of mine missed an ace by an inch within the last week.

I don't know the numbers but 18 at Reddish Vale is significantly uphill.

Not really what the thread is about but Legend Golf and Safari Resort has a par 3 that drops approximately 400 meters.  You take a helicopter to get to the tee.  It's a gimmick and not part of the regulation 18 but I would assume it's the largest change in elevation from tee to green.

The 1st at Sanctuary in Colorado is 245 feet.


The 10th at Augusta is 110 feet meaning your second shot is really awkward.


The question is do most of the holes have landing areas that are flat or are you playing extreme uphill or downhill shots?

Good call on the Sanctuary. The tee ball just stays in the air forever.
Red Sky Ranch Normanís 16th 284 yard par three is similar. Iím not sure what the vertical drop is but it is significant. The downside of the hole is that the tee gets backed up because everyone plays the hole from 284 yards.

The 10th at Alpine has to be the steepest uphill hole from the Golden Age.  Myopia Hunt Club has several extreme up and downhill holes that are both fun and extremely exacting in their shot making demands.

Kelly Blake Moran's par 3 12th at Morgan Hill in Easton,PA drops 150'. The hole commands a great view of the city of Easton and the Delaware River valley.
