10 Toughest Holes In U.S. Open History – Page 6


The Olympic Club – sixth hole par 4, 489 yards


Lake Course, San Francisco
Years: 1955, 1966, 1987, 1998, 2012

Finding the fairway on the sixth hole at Olympic Club is the first hurdle. Players must negotiate a large fairway bunker that makes a tight fairway even tighter at around 295-yards. From there, they are hitting to a green with a serious false front which will send back short approach shots. It also has two massive bunkers front left and back right. In 2012, it played to a 4.54 stroke average where the field only made 15 birdies all week.
