What is a Biarritz green?

A Biarritz green gets its name from the 3rd hole at Biarritz Golf Club which was designed by Willie Park Junior in 1888. This dramatic hole no longer exists, lost to the ravages of World War II.

This par 3 was known as The Chasm and was played from a tee perched on a cliff 80 feet above the sea across a chasm to another, lower, cliff 50ft above the water. The carry was said to be about 160 yards, with the distance to the flag 210 to 240 yards. The green on this hole mimicked the approach in that it had a huge drop in the middle or swale, as part of the putting surface.
