Best Hole at a Golf Course

No. 10, Normandie Golf Course

Having just turned the corner from the front nine, you might expect the links to take it easy on you. Not at Normandie Golf Course, where No. 10 presents one of the most difficult challenges of the entire par-71 layout. You can't see the pin from the tee box, so you might as well pull out Big Bertha. But if your drive isn't long and straight, you're already looking at bogey. Even if you find the fairway, as you crest the hill you see that going for the pin entails a long iron shot over the creek that rings the green. A layup will necessitate chipping close enough to one-putt for par. And guess what? No. 11, another par-four, is even more of a challenge! Ah, the beauty of golf's risk-reward equation. Ah, the beauty of No. 10. Ah, the beauty of Normandie, the oldest public course west of the Mississippi. (And it's affordable too! Book a tee time after 1 p.m. and pay only $26.)
