This hole featured in this lithograph is titled: "MT. RUSHMORE NATIONAL PUBLIC LINKS 365 YARDS PAR 4". The litho features "The Big 4" in Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead and Ben Hogan. A demanding straight forward hole, yet one of the easiest in the beautiful Black Hills area of South Dakota. However, after Congress decided to redo the mountain with more deserving heroes, the scores went up dramatically. Obviously, it was due to the intimidation of the great ones watching your every move. Handicap change is being considered. Number 15 handicap.
