The Toughest Course On The PGA Tour

Relying on the PGA Tour’s statistics on last year’s toughest holes, I have constructed my own “toughest course.” It’s a Par 72, measuring 8086 yards, composed of four par threes, four par fives and ten par fours from Augusta, Congressional (3 holes), Harbor Town, Muirfield, Olympic (4 holes), Pebble Beach (2 holes), Royal Lytham St. Anne (4 holes), TPC Blue Monster and TPC San Antonio. On average, Tour players would score a 78.895 on my hypothetical course. That means I’d score about a two hundred.

Here are the holes:

16th at Muirfield Village – 201 yds- 3.368
12th at Pebble Beach – 202 yds – 3.327
2nd at Congressional – 233 yds – 3.326
3rd at Olympic Club – 247 yds – 3.325

15th at Royal Lytham St. Anne – 462 – 4.415
11th at Congressional – 489 – 4.405
1st at Augusta National – 445 – 4.392
2nd at Olympic Club – 428 – 4.386
