Like its counterparts in the opening stretch, the eternal backdrop is the rugged and reddish slopes of Camelback Mountain. Although there are no bunkers, the thoughtful player will understand this by no means translates to an easy par. First, the slightly uphill hole requires a gauge of length, not only to the green, but specifically to the front lobe or the more hidden back. Second, at the mid point the green becomes very narrow, bringing the mounds more into play.
Luck—both the good variety and the alternative—will come into play as shots careen off the mounds and rattle around within the confines of the green. Once at the green the player is greeted with an amazing peek at Camel Head, the red rock feature that completes Camelback Mountain at its western tip. The original Biarritz hole sat along the Atlantic coast of France above the Bay The hole was extremely long across a deep canyon. At the far side was a unique green with a deep and pronounced swale running from left to right across the line from the tee.
Enamored with its design was Charles Blair Macdonald, who eventually brought the concept back to the United States and integrated it into his famous Chicago Golf Club. The Biarritz at Mountain Shadows Resort Scottsdale is a twist on the original sporting a low valley to the left of the green. This valley will be a welcome reprieve to those who do not want to tangle with the bunker set short and to the right side of the green. The dip across the green is nearly 4 feet deep and creates two distinct platforms to set the flagstick, one to the front and one to the back.
Occasionally - on a lucky day - to see the hole cut into the dip itself, which by all accounts makes the hole play much more forgiving. Often described as "the par-three that acts more like a four," this is the longest of the holes at Mountain Shadows Resort Scottsdale. Turning direction to the east, No. Nutshell Turning direction to the east, No. The green sits on a ridge with its surface a mystery until one arrives to begin the putting. Best not to be taken too lightly. Perception is the key to No. Sixth Sense Perception is the key to No.
With a pronounced ridge extending into the green surface, hole locations here will confound the tee shot to a significant degree. Anticipating the precise hole location comes with its rewards. To the right, an angled bunker prompts a different angle of approach from the tee than if the hole is a bit to the left.
The danger at the left is the steep drop-off where a ball may bound toward the out-of-bounds. At the back of the rolling green is a target location guarded by a strong ridge that serves as a barrier to the upper level. The shortest of holes does not always translate to the easiest, as is proved her Jutty The shortest of holes does not always translate to the easiest, as is proved here.

With its elevated tees above the famous Mountain Shadows Resort Scottsdale pond, this most delicate of short-shot holes plays to a peninsula green that is rather simple in terms of breaks and rolls. Defined by a stone ledge on all sides and front, the green appears much smaller than it actually is. This is due to the perilous watery grave that awaits those shots too far off line or a wee bit short.
From well above the green one imagines it an easy swipe to the green. But, much Ebb From well above the green one imagines it an easy swipe to the green. But, much like those fun houses with odd angles, warped floors and mirrors, the green is perplexing. Next is a fall-away green, higher in the front than at the rear.

Then, at the rear, is a collection bunker where mis-judged shots can easily roll. Only the well-placed tee shot will overcome this feature and have a chance at coming to rest on the putting surface. This hole is no angel. Halo This hole is no angel.
At just under yards from the back tee, a wedge or short iron will do nicely. The key is maintaining control and not encountering one of the green-side bunkers. If No. While appearing as oppos Punchbowl If No. While appearing as opposites—the 9th is surrounded by sand, and at the 10th we have not even a single grain—the relationship of the 9th and 10th is complementary, at least in terms of design. The 10th is a cocoon, its green settled deep inside mounds, concealed and yet awaiting the fate of a lucky shot.
You cannot see its green, except for that small sliver at the front. Sometimes the flagstick only presents its uppermost end with the flag waving above the surrounding berms. Instead of sand, its moat is inverse and all covered in grass. Quite possibly the most photographed hole of the bunch with a gun-sight view to Camelback Mountain rising above the green. Today the legacy lives on. The modern version at this long one-shotter was simply shifting the green to the edge of the stream.
By doing so the view is, to put it bluntly, up the creek. Edged by stone at the right, the long green dribbles down the slope with a welcomed bail-out area to the left. It is here, along this curved embankment at the bail-out, that the seasoned player will learn how to bank a shot much like an Indy driver takes a super-elevated turn.
The skillful line to the target is not only one played directly at the green, but includes one played into the bank where it is possible to use the ground to roll a ball onto the green. That ever-present stream is among the hole's most pesky traits, even though its looks are so inviting and peaceful. Wedge play abounds.
Oasis Wedge play abounds. A bunker serving as sentry to the left and all shots played too conservatively away from the water. At the back to the right is our oasis—a grove of palms as old as the course itself. Plan carefully. A hole located on the lower deck means a shot must not and its way back up the slope to the upper portion of the green. And that is just as bad as reversing the situation and finding yourself way down below when the hole is way up and back. Here, the strategy is to pick your distance carefully. Named for its likeness to nearby Mummy Mountain, the 13th is defined by a large Mummy Named for its likeness to nearby Mummy Mountain, the 13th is defined by a large mummy-shaped ridge that forms its left edge.
Sharing a huge green with hole No. Did we mention that a small pot-sized bunker has been left within the putting surface?
Well, it has. Thomas and William P. Here, the small bunker serves to divide the large double green. Certainly the 13th will be a conversation piece long Show Less. There, a white stone is moved from day to day so players know approximately where the hole on the all-but-hidden green has been set. At our version, a gaping bunker protects the front, and that shared bunker with No.
Short, but demanding. Hint: The forward tee is among the most interesting shots at The Short Course with a nearly blind tee shot up and over a large grassy mound.

The ultimate hole-by-hole guide to Augusta National
I read a book about 10 years ago. And I've tried googling everything I remember from it, but no luck. I had thought that the author was Cassie Edwards, but I looked up the plot to all her books and can't fond them. It was printed in the 80s or 90s. The plot goes something like this. A young woman, I think her name may have been Mara, is married to a Native American King not Chief of a hidden valley.
