Mines 5

Par 5, 477 yards

The granddaddy of the front nine, this straight-but-forever par 5 has a road to the right but a driving-range-width fairway, sharing it with the 9th. I wonder about placing tees facing each other on 5 and 9, since a player on an adjacent fairway seems to be at risk, but on this quiet day it's not an issue.

I pull out a driver and send it straight but high (better than left and longer), and have 300-plus yards left. I slam my 3-wood straight but then lose my 6-iron approach short and right. My sand wedge only gets me within 14 feet, and I two-putt for a bogey 6.
