6. Fenway Golf Club, Scarsdale
Hole 6 • 227 yards • Par 3
You wouldn’t think you’d need five bunkers to guard an uphill par three that’s 227 yards long, but that’s how many you encounter on the 6th hole at Fenway. And they come into play more often than you think, too, since most players are using a wood — drivers aren’t unheard of — to try to reach this green.
As if length from the tee weren’t enough, the green has several difficult pin positions, too. One of the hardest is in the center where a large hump means that nothing longer than a 12-inch putt can be taken for granted.
