Old corkscrew, 76.6/151, ~7400 off the tips. All the greens are raised with crazy slopes and bumps and surrounding areas are difficult.  Palmettos or water lining every fairway. Also no roll on the fairways when I played it (mud balls on most tee shots). I generally enjoy challenging courses, but I don't think I'll play there again, green areas just didn't seem fair, or just overly penal.

Give it another shot, the more you play there the more you appreciate it

1a - Old Corkscrew Gc ^^^ like the guy above me just very tough in every area of the game

1b- Wolf Run Gc- Carmel IN, great track but brutal if your not playing well


1c - Oak Hill- Nothing like New York rough, to go along with the good layout, when they grow the rough up it gets tricky boy

Blackwolf Run would be at the top of my list. The rough was impossible and right off the fairway!! If you were a foot off the short stuff, you were in 6 inches of cabbage. The fairway bunkers were very difficult although I never got into them but my playing partners did. I have to admit I played pretty well and certainly enjoyed the round!!

Bethpage Black for me, when the rough and gorse is up.   One of the hardest I've played was Moorland at Legends resort in Myrtle - played there on a windy March day and the misses were brutal.  I think its the toughest in MB.

I would have to say for me Spyglass Hill was the toughest course I have played.  The course played really long for me when I played it a few days after Christmas 2 years ago.  It was as if every shot was a club or two longer than what the distance was playing.

I played there several years ago with a friend who is a much better, somewhat longer hitting player than me. I thought it was fairly straightforward tee to green and extremely tricky once you get on or near the green. Probably shot 3-4 strokes worse than my handicap.

My friend struggled all day. He said every hole played longer than it looked and the tee shots looked more wide open than they actually played. I was a 20 handicap and he was a 4 or 5 and I'll bet he only shot a couple strokes better than me.

Kind of weird how a course can suit one guy's game just fine and kick another's butt all day long.

Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Ko'olua on Oahu in Hawaii was tough, but the course conditioning was also very suspect.

The Ocean Course at Kiawah probably the toughest I've played -- and it wasn't particularly windy when I played it. Curse you Pete Dye, lol!

For those of you fond of Ko'Olau and concerned about the changes being made. I played there with my Dad back in October and the changes were not bad at all. Actually, I spoke with the pro shop and they confirmed that it now more closely resembles the original opening condition! Just for a look, I have before and after pics from the #15 tips tee. I'm standing at the front edge of the tee in the 2015 pic. Couldn't see the fairway any further back! Left of the fairway is the biggest change.

^ it's true, Ko'olau was the hardest course I've ever played -- I think it was about 1995 or 96 when I played the tips with rental clubs and goal was to break 100 with the weak regular shafts (shot 98...and lost several balls into the jungle)!

The Bull at Pinehurst Farms.  It's a Jack Nicklaus course that for me is tougher that all the Kohler courses, tougher than Erin Hill's, tougher that any other course I have played anywhere in the USA.

Carnoustie. Tee shots are tricky as there are a lot of blind shots with narrow fairways.

1.  Spyglass (Monterey, CA) - Especially during the summer when the greens are lighting fast and course play very long.

2.  Wolf Creek (Mesquite, NV) - Target golf with lots of force carry and elevation change.

Played Trump Doral Blue Monster last week. By no means am good golfer. Decent at best. Tend to shoot mid 80's. I think the conditions and the course made it the hardest I've ever played. Started out misty rain and wind was howling from a front moving in. The sun did come out but the wind never stopped. My driver barely made it to the fairway on #10 and I was playing from the blues. I saw one person teeing off behind me when I got the the 1st green and then never saw anyone else the rest of the round. Was very happy breaking 100 that day.

TPC Las Colinas a couple weeks after the Byron Nelson had been held there.  Played from the tips and just remember thinking "how the "f" do those guys post those scores out here".  I don't recall what I shot but it felt like a hundred.

Thereís 2 that are most difficult for me. From a pure ball-striking standpoint, Iíd rank Spyglass as the toughest. Like others have said, it seems like you need to take 1-2 extra clubs on every shot.....even shots that appear downhill. From a short-game standpoint, Colorado Golf Club was the toughest for me. Greens had to be rolling around 15 the day I played it. You had to be so creative on how to get your ball near the hole on approach shots or chips/putts. It was never a straight line to the hole. But it was also one of the most fun golfing experiences of my life. Coore/Crenshaw courses are always so much fun to play.

Did he play from a different set if tees as you? Amazing how courses change from tee box to tee box.

Silver Lakes on the Alabama Robert Trent Jones golf trail. Backbreaker/Heartbreaker from the orange tees (~6,600 yds). The greens are brutally hard. Iíve seen good players lag from 4ft. If you on the wrong section a 2 putt is a great achievement. Missing the green is sometimes an impossible par but the fairways are decently generous.

Troon North - Pinnacle Course about 20 years ago.  Only time in my life I had to go into the pro shop at the turn and buy more balls.  Was not nearly the player I am today back then, would love to get another crack at it now.

Not taking weather into account, the Country Club in Brookline, Mass was the hardest I've played. I parred the first and only had one more par afterward. The rough was so thick and high. It was the worst score I've ever had without losing a ball. My caddie found every one I hit into the junk, and the only option most times was to wedge it out to the fairway. I'd love to get another crack at it Posted Image

Taking weather into account, I played the Kings course at Gleneagles Scotland in 2* C with a howling wind and sleet blowing horizontally at us. It felt like pellets hitting us in the face. We walked down some fairways backward.

Thatís a tough course, no doubt. But you get some solace in that #1 is one of the hardest holes to Par (unless youíre wrx-long...).

Eagle Trace in Coral Gables, probably around 1990.  High winds.  I'd only been playing a few years and I had never played anything like it.  The quickest greens I can ever remember playing.  It was brutal.  Crystal Downs beat me up pretty good too, but I didn't have my best game that day.

Austin Country Club.  I’m a 9 index and shot a 98 from the 6,300 yard tees.  Generous fairways and obviously short, but Pete Dye is a sadistic son of a b_tch when he designs greens.   Half the greens on the course break opposite of physics.  Four balls out of bounds didn’t help though.

We played Cog Hill Dubsdread from only 7200.  I’ve never seen greens so well protected in my life.  If you miss the green by a yard you are either in a 8ft deep bunker or ankle deep rough.

My buddy who has played Oakmont numerous times said CH -DD is harder than Oakmont.
