I am currently constructing a 12 hole golf course on a mates bush property and need to work out the distances from tee to green (pin).
How are these distances measured on, say dog leg holes where you cannot see the pin? Is the hole measured to a point on the fairway then to the center of the green or are they surveyed to calculate a direct line "as the crow fly's"?
What about short downhill/uphill holes? I figure they are a direct line of sight to the pin (green). A downhill hole could be worked out by a horizontal line from tee to above center of green but I'd imagine that would end up giving a shorter reading than what it actually is.
Now this is no Augusta but there is a par 5 and 2 par 4's, the tees just flat spots I could find and the greens...well there is no putting at this stage, you only have to finish the ball within 1m of the pin to be "in". We had our first HIO on the weekend on a 150m par 3...well I'm guessing it's 150m.
I intend to take a range finder next time to work out the distances then I'm going to make up some markers for each hole.
Any info would be appreciated...and if anyone has any old flag sticks that they have stolen from anywhere I'd happily hide them on this course for you.
