Thankfully only five holes made this list of bleakest openers.  The designers have done a remarkable job creating compelling courses.  Incredible layouts full of tantalizing topography and breath-taking beauty.  Or almost so.  A handful of opening shots that are so bleak in comparison, they look like were mistakes.  Good news is there are only 5 on the over 40 courses!  Bad news is that you have to get through them to get to the real fun.  Here are my five bleakest:

1. Heron 1

2. Pimlico 1

3. Saddlebrook 1

4. Truman 1

5. Turtle Mound 1

I thought about posting pictures of these holes, but that would be like pouring salt onto the would!
