747 yards, 17th, Black Mountain Golf Course, Black Mountain, N.C. At one time, this famous par 6 on this city-owned muni was the longest hole in the world. The fact that it takes up 12 percent of the course’s entire yardage (6,215) makes it even more remarkable.

Which Belfry course is best?

As a member who has played all three, I think the PGA is the best. The Derby will be a bit of a let down as at it’s worst it’s no better than a decent muni. At it’s best though it plays like a mid-range private course. The Brab has some good and memorable holes, but some bland ones too.
