    I think it's a cop out.

    Maybe try a forum SEARCH for phrases like:

    'made an eagle on'

     and you may discover several holes that correlate to being possible 'easy' holes, then even more so are probable birdie holes. You get the idea.

    Have fun...I'd like to know how it turns out.

    Well, at least he's honest about what his club stands for. From the message on his club page:

    "I designed my country club to have fun. I also design a lot of intra-club tournaments in order for members to keep their averages down and move up in levels".

    This just might be a great marketing ploy for his club, designed to entice those looking to spoon feed their averages.

    In that spirit, may I suggest Merion #5.

    Possibly. But custom courses don't affect averages, so I don't see what the big deal is.

    Use the forum search feature, and you'll get threads with a lot of suggestions. Just search "easiest holes" or "easy holes."

    Absolutely correct, but it still could be a marketing ploy aimed at those looking for an "easy" club. And if so, quite a clever one.

    Sandbagging taken to a new level. His players can go up in levels and get  the  best clubs and stay well below the tier they should be in..
