Mines 7

Par 3, 131 yards (blue)

A sensuously shaped par 3 with no distance but much intrigue, with a sloping green, a long lateral bunker, and a massive dropoff from the elevated tees.

The blue and black tees are elevated a few stories above the green, so I launch from there, rather than the lame white and red teeboxes level with the green and shallow. But my 8-iron goes left into thick woods (must be moving my head again). I play a Phil Mickelson flop shot from 30 yards off some soft pine needles, and land it within 15 feet. From there I two-putt for a bogey 4.
