The 18 Hardest Holes on Golfshake

By: | Sat 15 Jun 2019 | Comments


Golfers use the Golfshake Score Tracker each week to record their scores and rounds, which has provided us with a vast library of information on thousands of golf courses, detailing their hole-by-hole statistics. Through our Stat Focus Series, we have analysed notable venues, including The Old Course at St Andrews and The Belfry, but in this feature, we have taken a more general look to identify the most difficult holes in the game. 

Taking stats from rounds tracked by mid-handicap golfers, we have found the toughest holes within the Golfshake Database. There is no obviously no exact way to determine the challenge of a hole - and many haven't made this list due to a relative lack of rounds tracked to meet the criteria - but it's clear that these holes pose a significant level of toughness to the average player, revealing the average score relative to par.
