Santa Anita Golf Course: Hole #16 Fairway
GG Rating

You want humps? Santa Anita's got humps. The fairways are full of them, while the greens are humps unto themselves, typically elevated and dome-like with slopes running off in multiple directions. Albeit frustrating at times, this lumpy landscape is what makes Santa Anita special and fuels an enduring desire to go back and play it better. If you fail to exact revenge, you can always look up at the stunning backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains to calm yourself down. It also helps to reflect on how little you paid for such a memorable round, often with a surprisingly agreeable pace of play.
