Default Most difficult type of hole for YOU

So while playing today, I got to thinking about what kind of hole is the most difficult for me to execute, and I started wondering, what's the hardest for others?

Mine is definitely like this - 300 feet, first 100 is open, then the last 250 is wooded, all while gradually bending left to right, so an anhyzer for a RHBH shot. Btw my flicks suck For some reason psychologically, I can play the same hole waaaayyyy better if the whole thing is wooded.

So what are your guys toughest kind of hole?

Similar holes for me, wide open at first going into a tunnel that turns. I've learned to play these for par and simply try to throw a putter up to the mouth of the tunnel and then approach to the basket. For sure don't want to throw deep in the trees for a 4 or 5.

Super long wooded holes with no clear line.

They make me want to die.

I'd probably say tight tunnel holes. I throw a little bit of everything, bh, fh, overhand, rollers and try to play the hyzer whenever possible but tight and straight gives me problems.

Same for me. Especially if the ceiling is restricted as well.

the wide open 500' hole, because i'll probably strong arm my drive trying to bite off more than i can chew from the box. now i'm 225' out after a 275' drive. the pressure is now on to be accurate, which i should be in the wide open, but i'll probably end up on the edge of the circle or 20' at best after the upshot. now i have a tester for par...

my max distance is around 325 and i'm probably 50/50 at best from over 20' so this kind of hole is totally just about execution. it's the hardest not because i can't do it, but because i can but won't almost half the time just from simple mistakes or bad mental game.

either that or a left to right hole with a low ceiling that i have to flick. my FH sucks

Low ceilings are my enemy.

Shaping fairways in the wood, like a turnover that stables up and fades

180' tunnel shots. I SUCK at powering down straight shots.
