I'm a fan of tough-par holes. Where the distribution might be 10% birdie, 50% par, 30% bogey, 10% worse. I wouldn't build a whole course of these, but put enough on a course and it'll make a difference.
I like some holes like that, they separate out a different part of the field than the holes that play say 30% birdie, 50% par, 20% bogey and above. I like a mix of the tough and easier holes at any given par level throughout a course for that reason.
