Who says golf courses must have 10 par 4s and 4 each of par 3s and par 5s? certainly not Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. Though Sand Valley does not have the 6-6-6 configuration of their work at Cabot Cliffs, Sand valley has only 8 par 4s, a feature that adds to the course’s variety. Variety is also found in hole distances: from the 6500 yard tees the 3s range from 115 to 215 yard and the 4s from 290 to 429. Coore and Crenshaw’s nicely contoured greens are also present with most offering options on the approach.
