I would like to see concrete pads on every hole. Yeah, they're not needed on most holes. But having them on every hole gives the course a consistent and completed feel. Also, they will require less maintenence over time. For that matter, I'd like to see them on the Highlands course, too.
While I agree that the look is unique and I agree with you there, I disagree that concrete pads make more sense long term on the holes that I mentioned. For 1, once concrete is poured it makes redesign in the future more difficult. Secondly, the wooden structures with gravel, are much more aesthetically pleasing and will be less slippery when playing in the winter.
