2007 Rankings
Most Difficult Hole
The par-4 468-yard 6th
A good tee shot will leave middle to long iron for second shot.
2007: 0 eagles, 27 birdies, 231 pars, 172 bogeys, 17 double bogeys, 0 other.
Easiest hole in 2007
The par-5 501-yard 14th
If you can carry the bunkers on the left at the dogleg, you can probably reach the green on the second shot. If you miss it a little, you'll end up in a bunker. When in doubt, lay up short of the fairway bunkers before the green.
2007: 33 eagles, 244 birdies, 149 pars, 16 bogeys, 4 double bogeys, 1 other.
