FROM THE FRINGE & ON THE GREEN HOLE OF THE WEEK.
Byline: - Dave Shelburne
Knollwood CC, par 4, 429 yards
Arguably the toughest first hole of any course in the area, Knollwood No. 1 challenges with length, severe uphill and out-oounds for the entire right side of the fairway, and a hillside hazard that lines the second half of the left side of the fairway. A long drive is a must for anyone hoping to hit the green in regulation, but the drive also must stay in the fairway because the combination of rough and the remaining uphill would make for an exceptionally difficult second shot. A large green, a large greenside green·side
Situated beside a putting green: a greenside bunker.
Adj. 1. bunker and the problem of choosing the correct club for the elevation on the approach shot add to the challenge, which leaves plenty of golfers happy enough to settle for bogey.

``Ain't nothing but an 'ol gator,'' the Georgia-born Bean said.
Ted Barnhouse might have been as dismissive of his 1981 hole-in-one in Oregon had his shot not first shanked over a barbed-wire fence, bounced back off a cow's head, caromed off a sprinkler head and then again off a lawn mower before banging into the flag stick and dropping into the cup.
Tommy Thomas likely was as conflicted about his only double-eagle. The 18-handicapper never thought he could get close to the green with his second shot on a 497-yard par-5 in 1990 in Alabama but saw his perfectly struck 3-wood bounce off the shoe of another player on the green and then roll into the cup.
``Best shot I've ever hit in my life,'' said Thomas, who admitted he didn't know whether to celebrate or hide.
