You know, North Fulton Golf Course is one of my all-time favorites. When I lived in Atlanta (from 1991-1996), I played there all the time and it actually influenced much of my design philosophy about how fairway contours are the most "equalizing" of all hazards. For instance, if I recall the fourth hole (or maybe it is 13 now?), it was a short par four with an elevated tee playing down into a valley and then back up to an even more elevated green with a road down the right side.
Standing on the tee, the fairway was wide and open and had no bunkers. But what it had was a small plateau along the straight line from tee to green that was position A for anyone who wanted to make birdie. So it took a very accurate tee shot to hit this target but you were rewarded with a fifty to eighty yard pitch with an almost eye-level view of the putting surface. But if you missed the target, then you rolled all the way down to the bottom of the valley and had a longer, uphill approach to a blind green from that angle.
For the better golfers, it was a great challenge with great reward. But if you were less-skilled, it was wide-open and didn't present too many problems. Most likely, the lesser-skilled didn't even notice the existence of that small plateau.
So, to me, that is what I would call an excellent golf hole that challenges all skill levels, certainly those looking for a challenge, without doling out undue penalty.
