Oh definitely.... number 6 at Towne Lake Hills outside of Atlanta, Ga.  I play a draw and the hole requires a fade.  The trees creep in on the right and I can’t seem to hit the right shot there.   Then the second shot is uphill over a ditch.  Again, making me want to draw the ball more, which normally puts me in more danger.  Just a tough hole for me!

Lets take a closer look at the 15th at the Tapiola Golf Club in Espoo Finland. A par 4 of 455 yards from the back tees, or 425 for members. The hole plays into the wind and ever so slightly downhill,

So that's what the 18th at Augusta would look like after financial struggles coupled with 1970s Los Angeles smog.   I've often wondered..

190 yards always into the wind and the greens about 15 yards deep and 70 wide.  Eats me up more often than not

Let's see, the 2 most difficult holes for me at my course, holes 1 and 4. Hole 1 because I don't do a proper warm up usually. Hole 4 is tough because it's a downhill par 4 dogleg right, forest and swamp to the right. There are a couple of ways to play it. Conservative play is to hit down to the 150 marker where there's a bailout area before the "creek" that feeds the swamp. If you're playing from the blues you basically need to take this route, unless you can banana slice on cue. I play from the whites which allows you to take the aggressive approach, that and when I have tried the conservative approach I push it right into the swamp.

There is a bit of an "alleyway" between 2 tall trees that gives you the target for your driver, however push it right and if you're lucky you're dealing with a clear out in between the tree lined fairway and the forest on the right, often requiring a punch out. If you hit it long/left you are okay, just may have to deal with the trees on the left side or come up the 5th fairway. The green is protected by a large bunker on the left and thick rough and little hills right and long. The green for the hole is the most difficult, very sloped and hard to hit a long putt on, best to try to lag it up close and 2 putt. Oddly enough it can be a good birdie chance because the green is driveable, but it can become a blow up hole really quickly.

Having been a member there for two years, multiple holes at The International Pines from the Tiger Tees (8300+, 81.7 course rating). Number 5 is a 715 yard par 5. From those back tees, the tee shot requires a 275 carry, ravine below, woods on both sides of the hole. Then until you get to about 220 left, you're still blocked out from the green. Then the green is 100 yards long with literally mounds. It's something.
