🔥 Hole From Hell 🔥

Which golf course has the toughest hole in Toledo?

It’s summertime, the most magical time of the year for golfers. Yep, nothing can ruin your good mood! Not even that one hole that always seems to send your shot sailing into the drink. Or that one par five that seems more like a par seven to you. Or that one green which slopes at just the right angle to MAKE YOUR BALL ROLL TWENTY FEET AWAY FROM THE CUP WHAT THE $#!$#!$!#$!#!!!!

You, my friend, have discovered a Hole from Hell. But the question is: Which is the most challenging one in the Toledo area?

We have asked area golf courses to name their toughest holes, and now we are asking YOU to rank them on a scale of 1-4— one being easy as pie, four being harder than algebra. Just fill out the ballot below, and if you’re not sure, head out to all of these courses, play a round and let us know which one made you toss your clubs in frustration!

May the hardest hole win!

White Pines Golf Course

Some might call Hole #17 at White Pines “deceptively challenging.” We call it “a bit of a nightmare.” If you have a bit of a hook shot, this 173-yard par 3 will quickly send your ball for a swim— both a creek and a pond sit to the hole’s left. And if you’re confident in your accuracy, don’t worry, as the green’s unpredictable slopes may take your shot for a ride anyway. 1640 Co Rd. 2, Swanton

HeatherDowns Country Club

Don’t be fooled by its simple appearance— Hole #4 is a monster of a par four. 376 yards from the back tee, players must place their first shot near the 150-yard marker or it could run right through the fairway into a downhill lie in the rough. Then, a creek crosses the front of the green, which itself has severe slopes and is a three-putt just waiting to happen. 3910 Heatherdowns Blvd., Toledo

Maumee Bay Lodge & Conference Center

Hole #14 is a Par 5 that plays 525 yards from the tips and usually into the prevailing winds. It’s a dog-leg right with a narrow, twisting, snake-like fairway. Water hazards and tall fescue come into play on all 3 shots, tee shot lay up shot and approach shot. Approach shot is into a narrow two-tier green with water in front and bunkers guarding the back. 1750 Park Rd. 2 #2, Oregon

Fallen Timbers Fairways

It’s not the 28 foot drop in elevation from tee to green on Hole #13 at Fallen Timbers that makes it so tough. Or the 6′ ditch that runs the entire width of the green surface. Or the trees that line said ditch. Or the tall grasses that entomb the green on all sides. No, it’s ALL of those things added up and then subdivided by the slope of the green! Come and tame the beast! 7711 Timbers Blvd., Waterville

Bowling Green Country Club

A nine hole golf course with two sets of tees, Hole #7’s blue tee is a mountain of a challenge. This 168-yard Par 3 is an elevated tee shot over a quarry onto an extremely small green— a green which slopes down toward the quarry, of course. A diver comes in every few years to recover the thousands of golf balls that frustrated players have plunked into the drink. 923 Fairview Ave., Bowling Green
