What is your favorite among the golf holes you have played?

That is the question we posed to our Facebook and Twitter followers on Tuesday. We received more than 500 responses and compiled the results to try to figure out which hole stands alone.


The answer? It’s a tie between No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass and No. 8 at Pebble Beach.

We also noticed a big push for the 19th hole, the “next hole you will play” and any hole where you have made an ace. Hey, we can’t blame you for that.

Here is the final tally featuring holes that received at least two votes:

21 – TPC Sawgrass No. 17
