    #15 at my home course. Short par-4 with a ton of water on the left and a creek about 220 yards out that stretches around to the right side of the green. Should be an easy 4i to the fairway followed by an 9i or less to an elevated green (bunkers protecting the front). For some reason I can't seem to get all of my clubs working on this hole. I'll either pull one into the drink or hit a great shot followed by a push into the water protecting the green.

    #9 at Waverly Oaks in Plymouth,Ma. Only plays 300-350 depending on tee but it's just an awful hole. I've hit everything from 7i to 3w trying to figure out hole. 2nd shot is to an uphill green 30' above the fairway. 2nd shot is almost always a downhill/sidehill lie to a green you can only see top of flagstick. In reality water cuts into fairway a lot more. Further you hit up fairway the narrower it gets.

    I do but I only play that course about once a year. It’s a 560 yard double dog leg par 5 that doesn’t allow me to hit anything longer than my 3 iron off the tee because it runs out of fairway at about 220 yards. The second shot is very tight as well and it’s a mountain course where the fairways and green are heavily sloped. I never seem to be on the correct tier of the green. Par is rarely the result.

    Par 4, 400 yard 9th hole at my home course (Country Oaks - Thomasville, GA). The fairway is uphill from the end of the lake to the green. The carry over the lake is of no concern. Fairway is always a little soggy so no rollout can be counted on. My average 2nd shot is from about 175. The green is quite narrow from front ot back and there is a large bunker guarding the entire front of the green. It is probably more of a mental blaock than anything, but I very rarely hit the green in 2. Average score is probably around 4.8.

    easiest hole on the course I play the most. 252 yard par 4. Straight. Houses left and right of a fairly wide fairway. sand behind. In other words...zero trouble. For reasons that elude me, no matter what club I grab I yank it left over the houses. 8 iron just to lay up to the 100? over the houses. Driver? over the houses (and once over the green, over the sand, over the shrubs, over the road, over the next tee box and a bit more). I once teed off with my sand wedge just to get into the fairway. And yep, bladed it right over the houses to the right. smurf that hole.

    Hidden Creek GC in Burleson, TX. Par 4 7th. It's the #1 Handicap. Long par 4 that turns to the left thick trees left and right. Green isn't bad, just a green side bunker on the right. If you hit a draw with your driver this is an easy hole. I have trouble turning it over, but it doesn't matter because no matter what club I swing I hit a shank on the tee box. It's all psychological because honestly it's not a crazy hard hole, def not easy but no reason to shank it every single time I play it.

    We have a par 3 that is a peninsula, no bunkers or anything, but it ALWAYS plays into the wind, and from the back tees is plays 210, without the wind, so there are days I have to hit 3w or 5w.

    #4 at the home course.

    Drivable par 4, but it kind of bends to the right but slopes hard to the left and its surrounded by trees and OB. The superintendent hasn't yet confessed on record, but theres something he's put in the fairway chemical program that actually repels golf balls. Its remarkable. I've made anything from a 2 to a 12 on this hole in the past 2 seasons.

    When I was living in DFW the 10th hole at my home course gave me fits. A water carry off the tee onto a peninsula. Second shot was also a water carry unless your drives were 260 ish, mine aren't. You know one of those two was going in the water.

    #3 at my home course. Par 5 465 yards with very narrow fairway with OB on left and right. Houses on the left and road then houses on the right. My drive has to make the top of the hill or I have a blind shot. 2nd shot also has OB on both sides. 3rd shot is open to the green with sand trap in front and big oak tree on right. This maybe a pretty straight hole, but it takes me down most of the time.

    It's usually playing 215-220 from the blues, but that is deceptive as it is slightly up hill. Marshland/no-mow short right leading all the way up to the green, OB woodland area a few yards off of the green, and long grass if you tug it to the left. There is also a well placed bunker guarding the back right of the green... and they almost always have the pin back there making it nearly impossible to get close. The rest of the course is very 'gettable' from the blues, but this hole alone makes me want to 'tee it forward'
    That's definitely a true #1 handicap hole. My problem with holes like this is my expectation to par them. There is a par 3 at a course in Gatlinburg, TN that I play every year that is 210 or so with a 20-30 feet uphill elevation change. The pin is nearly always on the back of a very large sloped green as well so even if you get up there it's a long uphill putt. My miss is a hard draw and there is trouble left on this hole. For some reason though I can't make myself hit a 4-iron 185-195 and leave myself an uphill 40 yard pitch shot for a try at up and down for par and at worse a bogey. I always want to pull my 3 wood out and go for the hero shot. Since it plays about 225 uphill I still have to rip my 3 wood which usually leads to a hook and OB.
