Best Hole at a Golf Course - 2003
No. 16 at Annbriar Golf Course
"A freakin' brute" is how one veteran golfer describes Annbriar Golf Course's sweet No. 16. It isn't the most scenic hole -- No. 11 gets that honor -- but if it's a challenge you want, then the par-four, 466-yard sixteenth is a great choice. A golfer has to struggle with a tee shot into the breeze onto a fairway that can't be seen from the tee box. If you manage to hit the green on your second shot, there's a nasty slope that threatens to send your Titleist back down the hill if it doesn't land in the middle. While you're there, you might as well play all eighteen: Annbriar is a family-owned and operated public golf course. It boasts a pro shop, club house and a 100-year-old smokehouse. The course gets a four-and-a-half star rating from Golf Digest and a designation from the magazine as one of the top 500 places to play.
