Don’t go looking for lost balls.

The 15th hole at Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity, Texas is as unique as it is beautiful. Before the hole was constructed, the area used to be an alligator nest. A number of gators still live in the surrounding Caney Creek, so I wouldn’t suggest looking for lost balls.

Five tee boxes horseshoe around the hole leaving multiple angles and yardage from which to attack the smallest green on the course. Tall pines surround your target, and when the wind swirls, a straight four iron from the 178-yard championship tee is your best bet. A shot to the middle of the green is ideal since there is no room for error.

A grand bunker frames the front of the green and is a welcome shield to the water. This golf hole will truly test your game. Par is a great score.
