favorite golf hole?

View from tee;
A real risk & reward hole, the further you aim over the water the shorter the approach. Aim too far right and you are left with a blind second with water in-front of the green.

Favourite Par 5:
2nd at Glendower, I think Bobby Locke called it the best par 5 in South Africa
7th at Killarney CC, my home course. Can't find a picture for it unfortunately.
15th at Parkview Golf club. One of the prettiest holes in Johannesburg
My favourite over all though...
13th at Augusta
11th at Augusta
Any at Pinnacle Point

based on my current ability it would have to be shortish--not more than 300 yds.....unless it's downhill..
it would also have to have a good risk/reward feature and a breathtaking view..
....i will always approach such a hole with excitement and anticipation as the possibility of making a hole-in-one or an eagle on a
par 4 will make me want to play it again....and again...and again!!...........and again!
PS..the worse golf holes for me are 3-shot par 5s!!....not those that make you play for position but those that are unreachable even by the longest hitters..
BTW..i haven't found a reachable par 4 i really liked yet....and i believe all courses should have at least one..

Tee from the Par 3 3rd over the green, off the cliff, to #4 fairway (if you make the 280 poke) then play in to #4 green with the 180-230 you have left in =]
