Doral’s Blue Monster course is ranked No. 98 in our Top 100 Courses You Can Play, though this 1961 Dick Wilson design has been touched up more times than a stripper. Nevertheless, it’s still a lush, flat track buttressed by a minefield of more than 100 bunkers and eight large lakes, and when the wind blows, scores soar.

The ultimate gut-check takes place at the fabled 467-yard, par-4 18th. Hit it left and you’re wet, but the entire right side and the elevated green could hit you with a double bogey even if you stay dry. A four earns you bragging rights for years.
