I'd say it has to be the flop shot over the wall into The Pit at North Berwick. May only be 8-10 yards.

Nonsense - surely it's the 4th at Silloth when you've missed the green to the left and land in the dip and then chip over the green and land in the dip on the other side ?  ;D

Not unique in the slightest...in my experience!

Surely the pitch to the 8th at Pine Valley is sinfully delicious.

I'm pretty sure they weren't...


How about this for a unique short shot: https://www.golfchannel.com/video/british-open-1983-hale-irwin-royal-birkdale

Agreed.


But is it unique? How does it differ from a similar look at Fenway?


I also thought about the DA as compared to the road hole bunker but the Road Hole bunker has the added trouble behind the putting green that the DA lacks.

Thank you for changing the font of your posts. It makes them easier to scroll past.

#10 at Ingleside.  I threw a ball for a tap in birdie there once!


drop zone on the green?
We have a pool and a pond, the pond would be good for you.

Not a regular shot, but a recovery shot, Fazio had that cave in the fw at Barton Creek, which, if found, would be among the most unusual shots to be played, perhaps involving beating a Texas rattlesnake to death before playing.....

Especially if someone else in the group gets to use putter from a similar position.

The 9th at Cabot Cliffs has to be in the conversation.  I once played CL with a woman who serves on the Colo Exec USGA committee who took one look her 70 yard downhill tee shot, grabbed her putter and putted it onto the green!

The 2nd at TCC. It only plays that way four days every 20 years or so.




Your comment is not even close to being accurate. The Open Course is played a couple/several times per month. Has been for decades…

On that I'd suggest the Composite 13th hole, which only exists four days every 20 years or so.




Again, this is just not true…

Maybe the 2nd at the Waterfall Club, A par 3 that plays over a waterfall.






Is that in North Georgia? Is it called "The Waterfall Club"?
Waterfall used to be Bent Grass tee to green; Bill Bergin has completed work on the course in the last year or so that included regrassing because a lot of the course just stayed too soft.  The members had a "local rule" among themselves for this hole that if all agreed on where the ball had landed but couldn't find it, it was deemed embedded and the player got a free drop.  The hole plays about NINE clubs less than the distance on the card.  It really is unique.
You may already know this, but the waterfall was created for the course.  There is a retention pond at the top used for the water, and the water is then pumped back up to keep the flow going.  As soon as the last group of the day plays the hole, the waterfall is shut off until the next day.
Nick Saban, btw, is one of the new owners of the club; he's had a house there for many years.
"Golf...is usually played with the outward appearance of great dignity.  It is, nevertheless, a game of considerable passion, either of the explosive type, or that which burns inwardly and sears the soul."      Bobby Jones
