Comments

Roy L. Beck Memorial Golf Course is located in Eminence, Missouri. The story goes that Mr. Roy L. Beck left his property to the city for a golf course if they could make it work. Well they did and it has been around since 1996. It is a little rough around the edges but I would definitely play here if I lived in the area. The 8th hole is a 204 yard par 4, straight downhill. What makes this hole very unusual, and very special, is that there are 2 huge trees in middle of the fairway 50 to 100 yards from the green. The most common strategy is likely to hit your ball to the gap between the trees and fade it towards the green. I’ve got to think that 95% of the people who play this course will go for the green on the drive. But, the problem is that if you spray the ball, especially to the right, you are in serious trouble. Plus, the odds are very good you will hit one of the trees and who knows where your ball will end up. The picture above is from the tee on this hole. Would you go for it?
