Design Innovation: The Legends Nine at Bacon Park - Hole #9
Hole #9: Par 4 (351-328-290-275)
I wanted to pay homage to Donald Ross with the final green of the Legends nine by creating four quadrants as he was apt to do many places, including at Bacon Park (exemplified by the tenth green). All four quadrants run parallel and perpendicular to the line of play, sitting at different elevations. The back right quadrant is the highest and the front left is the next highest. The two remaining opposing quadrants are the lowest of the group. A swale to the left of the green is the inverse of the mounded ridge that protects the back right corner of the putting surface.
