Guru's Best Holes

The Gurus' favorite holes to tee it up on! The holes are some of the most dramatic, entertaining, and famous holes in golf! This list consists of our 100 favorite individual holes we've played thus far, as they play from the tips, and separated by par.

  • Best Par 3s:  One-shotters should be exhilarating, attractive, and memorable. This collection of par threes embrace all of those qualities while also often delivering interesting greens. These beauties will have you pulling out your camera! (Updated: November 2016)
  • Best Par 4s:  A good two-shotter should feature a cool tee shot or an interesting approach shot; the great par fours with have both. These holes will often give the golfer the option of being more daring off the tee in order inherit a better approach shot or angle. (Updated: November 2016)
  • Best Par 5s:  Options, options, options. The best par fives generally provide a risk/reward option of reaching the green in two and can do so with hazards, a dual fairway, or other strategies. Three-shot par fives should embrace and reflect the terrain upon which they are built and deliver an exciting tee shot. (Updated: November 2016)
