I was passing through Greenville, SC about a month ago I think and was staying at this hotel and played "The Preserve" formerly called "Verdae Greens" I think. Anyway it's more of a ball placement course for most of the holes and not really a big driver course I would say so yea it can be hard if you are not accurate off the tee at least on the front 9.
Anyway I played the front 9 and made the turn and came up on this 4some on the 10th tee. I sat there and watched them hit 2 balls each and I guess I was getting noticeably irritated when one on the guys teed up a third ball. They told me they were betting who could drive the green and they all had $25 riding on it from the white tees. The hole was straight downhill with a big bunker on the front left of it. They said since they were holding me up I could get in on the bet. Everybody gets 3 shots. I teed the ball up and drove the green but my first ball hit the green and rolled over. The other 2 shots missed left and right but still reached. Anyway none of them even reached the green and I thought I'd won. Guess what? Nobody won. They said since my ball didn't stay on the green I didn't win either and I lost 25 bucks. I think I was the sucker who paid for their drinks later. Somehow I don't think this was their first time doing this.
