There are some holes on the courses I play more frequently that seemed to be cursed. Amongst the top-ranking ones is the second hole of GC Kallin.

The par 3 measures 151 meters (165 yards), the fairway is just a small strip of land between three lakes and the right side and back of the hole is OB. This is my personal #17 @ Sawgrass (satellite view).
Normally, to hit a ball 150 meters straight is absolutely no problem. Take a normal swing with a six iron and you are there. Not on this hole. Just a little push and you are OB, the slightest slice or hook lands you automatically in the drink. Yesterday, I managed both. First ball OB, second in the drink just three meters short of the green. Too bad, as the second one was perfectly aligned and went directly towards the flag. If he wouldn’t have lacked the last meters. Ended up with a seven. I have never managed to play #2 better than double-bogey.
But the day will come when I play this sucker par or birdie. I will get you, #2, you hear me?
