Greatest Golf Holes: While we picked YCC No. 10, check out a reader's top holes

The Vindicator and Farmers National Bank are into Week 2 of the Greatest 18 Golf Holes in the Valley.

While we offered our pick -- No. 10 at Youngstown Country Club -- another golfer piled on with his selections. Click here.

Our selection — No. 10, YCC — has drawn some react:

Bucknut: So far I love the first two holes. I have played #9 at MIll a number of times and it always presents a new challenge. Jonah, as far as I am concerned you could have picked any hole from Mill Creek. That course is amazing. It is where I (and i'm sure countless others) learned to play the game.

The Watchdog: I want to know what happened to JJ"s game at YCC. I know number ten plays into the wind but to hit a 235 yard drive to leave 175 in is pretty poor for an ex YSU all conference performer.

Greatest 18 blogger Jonah Karzmer replied to the two golfers, and has some of his own YCC No. 10 insight:

"I personally think (YCC, No. 10) is one of the top 3 hardest par fours in the area. Kind of like playing pool, it seems like each shot hit on this hole is to simply set up the next."

"Number 10 at Youngstown is another classic Walter Travis/Donald Ross par four. As mentioned with last week's hole, the tee shot on this difficult hole builds on the "visual tricks" that Donald Ross holes present."
