I absolutely love driveable par 4’s!  They bring out the gambler in me.  The challenge of a risk/reward shot.  Such satisfaction when you pull it off and drive the green, and sheer frustration when you make a bogey (or worse) on such an easy hole. In my stint as head professional at Humewood Golf Club, Port Elizabeth, South Africa, the 16th Hole was just such a driveable par 4, with trouble all around the green.  With both 15 and 17 par 5’s, you had the opportunity to have 3 birdies in a row and finish strong.  Thanks to  of Golf Digest for putting this list together!

This week the PGA Tour visits historic Riviera Country Club for the Northern Trust Open, home of one of the most exciting holes in golf: The par-4, 315-yard 10th. While the modern professional can hit a 3-wood 300 yards, Riviera’s 10th is no cake walk. Called “one of the best 10th holes in major championship golf” by Jack Nicklaus, a shallow, tight green surrounded by bunkers can produce scores that submarine rounds. In honor of this classic hole, we look at the 10 best drivable par 4s on the 2016 golf schedule:

1. TPC River Highlands – 15th Hole
