What defines a “Scary Hole”?  One that gets your heart rate up and intimidates you! 

The players on the PGA Tour say this is what the 17th at TPC does to them.  That walk from the 16th green to the 17th tee elevates their heart rate and makes their knees weak.  They sure are glad when they walk to the 18th tee with a 3 on the card.  Personally, the 13th at Pawleys Plantation off the back tees has a similar effect on me.  What is your scariest hole? brings us their version of the scariest 18 holes in golf. (in the USA)

In pictures, they look beautiful. But in person, the 18 “scariest golf holes” in America project fear and intimidation.

We’ve created golf’s version of Frankenstein’s monster, borrowing holes from some of the most famous courses across the country to create a 7,346-yard, par-69 torture chamber where no bad shot goes unpunished. Many of these holes regularly torment tour pros:

No. 17 on the PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass;

No. 8 at Pebble Beach Golf Links;

No. 6 at Bay Hill Club & Lodge;

No. 15, the start of the “Bear Trap”, on the Champion Course at PGA National;

and the finishing holes at Harbour Town Golf Links,

the Blue Monster at Trump National Doral Miami

and the Tournament Course at the Golf Club of Houston.

Others lurk in the shadows —

No. 15 on Bethpage Black,

No. 17 on the Ocean Course at Kiawah

and No. 18 on the Straits Course at Whistling Straits — 

The rest pick on the amateurs in Myrtle Beach

(No. 13 at the Dunes Golf & Beach Club);

in Mesquite, Nev. (No. 8 at Wolf Creek Golf Club);

in northern California (No. 16 at Pasatiempo Golf Club);

in Wisconsin (No. 16 on the River Course at Blackwolf Run);

in Indiana (No. 16 on the Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort)

and in Hawaii (No. 3 at Mauna Kea Golf Course, no. 18 on the Kiele Course at Kauai Lagoons Golf Club and no. 18 at Ko’olau Golf Club).
