Cruden Bay #15 (named Blin' Dunt), a par 3 extraordinaireLahinch's par 3 Dell hole, another above average par 3Maidstone's 8th (ok, so I like blind par threes!)If forced to pick just one, it would be Sunningdale's 7th.
No love for 18 at Merion?
#17 Dismal River Red is a pretty good hole!
8 and 17 at Dornoch require the player to make a clear choice and execute well. I have played them only three times, and I am unsure about the best strategy. Of course, the strength and direction of the wind is an important factor. In each case, playing over the hill requires a carry of perhaps 220 yards, preferably moving right to left to hold the fairways curving in that direction. Playing from the right rough is no bargain on either hole since the greens are protected short and right with bunkers.Playing from up top provides a nice view of the each green but a much longer shot. The 17 green, in particular, is not as receptive from that angle with the large, steep bank on the left side of the green.

Hi Dan,If you are talking about Belmont in Massachusetts, are you sure you don't mean 11? 11 is maybe my favorite hole on the course and is definitively a blind tee shot. 10 is not really blind.I think #5 at The Country Club is a fantastic blind par 4 that hasn't been mentioned yet. 15 from the new back tee, which makes it a skyline blind tee shot, is also a good hole.

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned the 4th hole at Bandon Trails, though I suppose it's only considered a blind tee shot if one plays a more aggressive line over the ridge. One of the best par 4's at the resort. And of course, a couple holes later you have the blind tee shot on #6.
