Video: The Seventh Hole at Palos Country Club

A sloping island green looks deceptively close on this challenging par-3 hole.

When standing on the back of an elevated tee box on the 176-yard, par-3 seventh hole at Palos Country Club, the flagstick still looks to be close, the hole almost inviting.

It's anything but close, and the hole is guarded on the right side by a large pond. The tee shot requires golfers to play a left-to-right ball. Because if you stray left you'll end up in a large bunker next to the green that makes it a very challenging hole, indeed.

The first thing you will notice once you get to the green is its pronounced sloping terrain. Only two golfers ever have aced the seventh hole, according to pro shop manager Kalynn Banks, and the club dates to the early 1900s.
