Mean 18 Hole 11: Blue Top Ridge

Posted:

RIVERSIDE (KWWL) -- There's Mean 18, and there's just mean.  The 16th hole at Blue Top Ridge near Riverside qualifies as the latter.

At 665 yards, this is the longest hole in the state of Iowa.  It features water, a plethora of bunkers, plays mostly uphill, and very often right into the wind.  Any average golfer who comes away with a par should be ecstatic.  On this monster, a bogey, or even a double, could qualify as a pretty decent score.
