It's certainly not a good hole by any stretch of the matter. Very flukely and a weird angle.

It's about a 4 of 10 when it's in the shorts, but about 2 of 10 when in the longs.

At least in the shorts if you pure the line and get it around the corner, you deuce the hole. I even hit the basket on this hole in the air at Tar Heel Tournament.

But in the long, it's about as impossible as it gets to get there and a great drive leaves you about a 75 foot approach. The same person who just threw an average drive has 150 feet in. Both players get 3's and there is no skill rewarded. At least in the short pin that drive that is 75 feet short of the long pin is a tap in 2 and the guy who is 150 feet short gets a 3.

This is a classic example of a hole being shorter but being harder, because it's way harder to get a 2 on the short pin than it is a 3 on the long pin.

But all that said, by far the worst hole on the course.
