Cape Hole, Golf Term

    A hole with a severe dogleg (up to 90° from tee to green) around a large water hazard or similar obstacle; the golfer must decide how much of the hazard to carry with his tee shot – more carry means more risk, but results in a shorter approach to the green if executed properly. The 14th hole at National Golf Links on Long Island is considered the original Cape Hole and has been widely copied.
