Have You A Suggested Name for a Golf Hole
.... at North Ridge Country Club, Raleigh NC ....?

Naming of Golf Holes

Do you have any comment about naming of golf holes? Some courses have done so - and when playing such a course I sometimes wonder "What criteria was used in coming up with a golf hole name - and, who decides what the name should be"?

Is another part of this matter: Does a golf course "deserve" to have a "right" to name its holes? Is the course worthy of doing that? Or, for that matter: Is there any purpose of having names for a golf hole?

Well, to me, it is purely a matter of "fun".

So, now that North Ridge Country Club is more than 40-years old... perhaps, if age is deemed part of any golf-hole-naming criteria, what are some names of golf holes at North Ridge you might recommend?

In 1997 I came up with some names; many of which are shown below - just to get things started. Votes are starting to come in, now, - and, names shown are "current leading in votes" as of June 12, 2011. For ties: I (the site Webmaster) make the final decision of names! The individual golf hole Web page linked-to below shows the names/votes that have come in.

Note: Clicking on "Current Hole Name" will present you with a Web page for voting for that particular golf hole.
