Mines 11

Par 3, 97 yards

The dual tee setup is confusing, and the white tees are too short. Otherwise, this is an impressive par three squeezed in but successfully secluded from neighboring holes. The ridge in the green is brutal, and the front bunker is intimidating. With the pin cut in the front today, there is no good place to put the ball.

I launch a 9-iron and am glad to clear the front bunker, but my heart sinks as I watch a ridge in the green kick the ball straight left, away from the cup. I'm left with a 40-footer over a ridge with over 5 feet of break to the right. I three-putt for a 4.
