Mean 18, Hole 3: River Ridge G.C. #1


INDEPENDENCE (KWWL) -- Hit one bad shot, and the opening hole at River Ridge Golf Club may just eat you alive.  River Ridge starts all comers off on a long, dogleg 560 yard par 5.

"There is out of bounds all the way on the left hand side, trees narrow on both sides, the fairway's only about 125 feet wide," says course owner Lou Sanboeuf, "It's a tough hole."

We had the scores to prove just that, as I managed a crowd pleasing 8, while Lou, a regular, showed me up taking a par 5.
