Valhalla's signature hole features a green perched atop huge boulders and almost completely surrounded by water. The 13th is the shortest of the par 4's, however this hole proved to be a real nemesis for several players in the 78th and 82nd PGA Championships. Players will hit a long iron to the right center of this fairway, which lies some 70 feet below the tee, to set up a short iron or wedge second shot. The fairway is bordered by five menacing bunkers to the left, one large bunker to the right, and plenty of thick bluegrass rough. Players missing the fairway will find it difficult to get the ball close to the hole and in some cases difficult to hold the island green at all. This will be a great spectator spot to watch many birdies as well as a few more interesting plays into this green.
