T he one that stands out for me at Mammoth Dunes is the sixth hole, a short par 4 with a boomerang green. For a guy like Andy it is a drivable par four, while for a guy like me, I'm hitting a driver down there and a flip wedge. But the green i s monstrous, with a lot of movement in it, and they can put the flagstick in any one of a number of places. Sometimes you might hit the green with your drive and have 120 feet for a putt with 20 feet of break. That's the fun factor. Anyone who plays Mammoth Dunes is going to remem- ber that hole. —Gary d'amato DUNES DEBATE 16 | 17 sand valley T he closing hole at Sand Valley has one of my favorite design concepts in golf—when the pin is in the back you have to shoot away from the flag to get close to the flag. One of the first times I played it I had a caddie and the caddie said, "You've got to aim 20 yards left of this flag." I had an iron in my hand and said, "No way." I went right at it and ended up in the bunker. —andy Johnson sand valley #18 mammoth dunes #11 mammoth dunes #6
