What we want to have is variety, gained by utilizing all the best natural features of the land, and alternating the holes of various lengths. The shape and nature of bunkers can be varied with immense advantage. How often do we see a delightful landscape spoilt by the creation of a number of symmetrical pots, or banks, or humps, made apparently at so much a dozen!
