Back Nine of Christmas: Day 6

15th Hole at Seminole Golf Club

Originally designed by Donald Ross in 1929, Seminole was where Ben Hogan spent winters preparing for the Masters. It has been a favorite of golfing elite ever since. The routing makes use of two ridges on the property to create elevation changes not normally found in south Florida, and the breezes off the nearby Atlantic add to the challenge.

The 15th hole curves around a large pond. Four bunkers and a row of palm trees force players to pick which route they want to take off the tee. The reward for taking the riskier line is a shorter second shot to the green.

Got a story about playing at Seminole, or think there's a better 15th hole out there? Let us know in the comments!
