Hole 11, Revere Golf Club at Anthem (Lexington course)

LAS VEGAS -- If holes-in-one represent golf perfection, par fives that are longer than six football fields strung together from goal line to goal line are the stuff that can leave plenty of room for disaster. They can turn a decent round into the aggravation one gets from losing luggage at an airport or seeing your last dollar disappear in a vending machine without getting that bag of chips in return. If your tee shot doesn't find the fairway, you could spend a week on one of these holes.
