Holes At Valhalla That Should Be Exciting -- 355 yard, par-4 13th

Another match-play marvel, the shortest par-4 at Valhalla is also one of the trickiest. Measuring just 355 yards, the big hitters could drive the green, but would have to do so to an island green that is elevated above the water nearly 20 feet. In four-ball, if one of the players placed their ball in a perfect spot on the fairway and you're in desperate need of a win, this might be the place to let the big dog eat.

Interesting fact -- in 2000, when Tiger Woods beat Bob May at this here golf course, he made par on 13 all four days. I guess that goes to show how tricky the hole can be even when laying up.
