I'm nowhere close to being a pro, so I might not qualify to vote in the poll, but I do have an opinion.
Hole 7 looked very intimidating the first couple times I played it. The third time, I realized that all you have to do is get the teeshot up and over the hill to be looking at a straightforward downhill approach to the pin. Once the underbrush is trampled down more I think we are looking at a hole that will generate an average score of below 3.5 in a tournament of open players. So... it's a 3, as PDGA guidelines suggest.
Talking to Bob yesterday, he suggested calling it a gold 3 and blue 4. This actually makes the most sense.
Anyway it's a fantastic hole either way.
