THE FOURTH HOLE AT COWBOYS CLUB IN GRAPEVINE:366-YARD PAR 4
Sure, it’s a little hokey, eye-rollingly so if you hate the Dallas Cowboys, but this go-for-it par 4 with a Cowboy star in the middle of the fairway screams fun.
THE 18TH HOLE AT REDSTONE GOLF CLUB IN HUMBLE: 484-YARD PAR 4
The vaunted finishing hole for the Shell Houston Open puts extreme stress on your approach shot. Don’t hit it in the lake!
THE FIFTH HOLE AT NEWPORT DUNES IN PORT ARANSAS: 599-YARD PAR 5
It’s links golf in Texas and on a course of wows, this monster with a lake-guarded green is the one that will bring you to your knees.
THE NINTH HOLE AT BARTON CREEK RESORT FAZIO FOOTHILLS IN AUSTIN: 175-YARD, PAR 3
Just a little thundering waterfall to carry your ball away if you miss. One of the more photographed holes in the state.
THE SIXTH HOLE AT FOSSIL CREEK GOLF CLUB IN FORT WORTH: 377-YARD PAR 4
Arnold Palmer messes with your mind. The woods, giant sand traps and a limestone wall guard the green.
THE SIXTH HOLE AT PINES DUNES RESORT & GOLF CLUB IN FRANKSTON: 254-YAR PAR 3
A one-of-a-kind hole on a course that’s unlike anything else in Texas.
THE 18TH HOLE AT BUTTERFIELD TRAIL IN EL PASO: 566-YARD PAR 5
Tom Fazio, at his dramatic best, forces you to decide how much lake to take on.
THE 17TH AT AUGUSTA PINES GOLF CLUB IN SPRING: 149-YARD PAR 3
A hole this short shouldn’t be this intimidating. It’s all about the island green.
THE SECOND HOLE AT WHISPERING PINES GOLF CLUB IN TRINITY: 576-YARD PAR 5
If you want any chance at reaching this par 5 in two, you can’t get caught up in the scenery. Or all the slopes.
