The Most Famous Hole In Golf?

Has any hole in golf generated more discussion than Sawgrass’ par 3 17th? That island green seems to both simultaneously fascinate and horrify. I used to think that the Road Hole was the most famous, but attention turns to the Old Course only once every couple of years when the Open Championship makes its way back.

I think it would be interesting to compile a list of the most famous holes in golf. Not the best. Just the most famous.

I’d start with Sawgrass 17. Then perhaps the Road Hole, Augusta 12, Augusta 13 and the 7th at Pebble Beach.

What would be on your list?

  1. 17 at St Andrews (Nakajima, Watson et al). It is a Major, after all.

    18 at Carnoustie (Van de Velde, Garcia et al). Another Major.

    But the most famous – 12 at Augusta. Cause Jack said it was the toughest par 3 in golf. Nuff said.

    !7 at Sawgrass is a 9 iron or wedge to a large green.
    (Listen to me! LOL)
