The Toughest Nine in Texas

A good golf hole should bring out the best in a golfer and make him want to rise to the challenge of the hole. The best golf holes combine these three elements: natural beauty, the harmony of the beauty with the surrounding terrain, and the demands on a golfer’s skills. The effect should give you a feeling, standing on the tee, that this is what the game is all about. A good golf hole is above all “tight,” meaning there is no room for error. But the hole shouldn’t be impossible. It should reward good golf and punish bad golf.
