Two words quickly come to mind when someone mentions SentryWorld: Flower Hole. The 16th hole at the daily-fee course in Stevens Point, Wis., not only is a challenging par 3, but it might be one of the most unique holes anywhere in the world. It can’t match Pebble’s seventh or Cypress Point’s 16th for breathtaking beauty, or Augusta’s 12th for history, but how many golf courses have a hole where more than 30,000 annuals are planted each year.

Competitors in this year’s U.S. Senior Open will need to focus on making a quality tee shot over taking in the sights and smells of the flowers framing the green complex.
