Blacksburg Country Club Superintendent Bill Keene sat down with me to discuss working with an architect to redesign the course, adjusting holes to stand up to modern technology and what makes a great golf hole.
Hole 12 at BCC made our “Dream 18” list of best golf holes back in 2008, but since then two courses on our list have closed and we need your help to fill out the 2013 edition.
The current front runners are:
1. Hole # 16 at Ole Monterey Golf Club, Roanoke, Va.
2. Hole # 5 at Olde Mill Golf Course, Laurel Fork, Va.
T3.Hole # 10 at Hunting Hills Country Club, Roanoke, VA.
T3.Hole # 9 at Hanging Rock Golf Club, Salem, VA.
Don’t see your favorite in the top three? Don’t worry. Voting will remain open until June 21, so be sure to nominate your favorites. The results will be published in the June 30 edition of The Roanoke Times.
