THERE'S ONLY ONE GOLF COURSE IN THE WORLD that has each hole conceived by a different designer. It's Crosswinds Golf Club in Greenville, South Carolina and the reason you've never heard of it is because it's an 18-hole par-3 course.
Yes, it's a gimmick, but it's a gimmick that works. What otherwise might have been just another fun-to-play but quickly forgettable par-3 layout is instead both fun-to-play and rather memorable. The holes stick in your brain long after you leave. You can instantly remember the Dye hole, or the Jones one or the Cupp one, and while you might have to think a minute about who designed some of the other holes (using the scorecard as a cheat sheet), you certainly can recall the salient features of each hole, because each is distinctive and different.
A Really fun par-3 course with enough variety to hold everyone's interest.
