Mines 12

Par 4, 289 yards

The 12th tee is up a steep hill; this course will really work your calves. This hole also interrupts the feeling of seclusion; it's next to the highway, although the trees are thick enough that cars can only be heard, not seen. Houses lie beyond the green and their backyards butt up against the rough. The rolling terrain leaves the green only partially visible on the approach.

I whack a worm-burner that rolls a decent distance, leaving me only a soft 6-iron. I catch it left and slightly long, leaving me a chip from just off the green. I think my sand wedge is short, but it releases and rolls 7 feet past. I lip the putt. 5.
