Best Hole on a Public Golf Course 

No. 18

You got game? At Normandie Golf Course, if you land on the green at No. 18, a nail-biter of a par-3, you've got game. This 250-yard mettle-tester ain't much to look at, but it provides a kick-your-keister finish to a round at what is said to be the oldest public golf course west of the Mississippi. Sand traps skirt the green, which means you're in trouble if your first shot veers left, right, falls short or (you stud, you) passes the flag. You might want to reserve that tee time soon, however, as Normandie's future remains uncertain. Despite duffers' outcry, the course's owners are negotiating with a real estate developer who wants to trade in Normandie's fairways for front yards.
