10. Bandon Dunes Golf Resort (Bandon Trails)

Bandon, Ore.

No. 14, 325 yards
Built by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw on an interior site a half-mile from the sea, the Trails is overshadowed by the resort’s three other courses, portions of which are perched high above the Pacific. But none of Bandon’s other courses presents an approach as scary as this short, controversial par four. Drift right off the tee, and you’re faced with a blind shot over gaping sand pits to the shallowest portion of the smallest green on the course. Miss this slippery hilltop squib by just a fraction, and you’ll need an adding machine to tally your total.
