Limited to one (you probably have scores), what's your favorite greensite... and let's include the the entrance to the green... 50 yards and in.

Doesn't have to be a known golf course.

I'm particularly biased toward the 15th at Dornoch, especially when the flag is cut in the front.  You can conceivably use one of 13 clubs in the bag.  Unless you're really confident or really lucky, your chances of making 5 are the same as 3. And this is from between 10 and 40 yards.

Of course you are right, though in the "best 36-hole day" thread, I thought Mr Huntley was as close as you can get with his revelation of a Cypress/Pebble day with Harvie Ward!!

7th at Vidauban, particularly since they let it brown out (a little) after the 2006 fire.

The ninth at Cypress Point and the tenth at Riviera are about as good as it gets.

Also, the tenth at Chambers Bay is fanastic as well.

Cheers,

As I am unsure how to post a picture, I have included a link to the place where you can see a picture of my favorite greensite...specifically a green.

#17 on the Pete Dye Golf Club of West Virginia.  I have heard a lot of people say negative things about it...but it is a challenge and a lot of fun.

Check out the picture at the bottom of the webpage that this link goes to...if you want to see a picture of it.

Heck...I'm not even sure if this link will work.
