Green with envy
Don’t judge a book by its cover, and don’t judge a golf hole by its yardage.
The par 4 No. 10 hole at Flying B looks pretty docile from the scorecard and from the tee box.
But there’s always trouble lurking around the bend — and that’s the case at No. 10.
In two years, the Greatest Golf Holes of the Valley tour has taken you to 36 greens at more than 20 courses in the Valley.
And we may have found our toughest green to date. Period.
The hook-shaped green defines the hole. Depending on your tee shot placement, which for most golfers will be a long iron or 5-wood off the tee, you may have to contend with water. But that could be the easy part.
The green sits about 10 feet above the fairway and slopes severely front to back.
Imagine those shots you see on TV, where the ball lands on the front of the green, only to trickle back to the shaved edge of the green .... and then roll back 10, 15 or 20 yards ... Or more ... sometimes to the feet of the befuddled player.
That’s this green.
You don’t have to be big to be tough.
The No. 10 hole is the evidence.
