Canada's most famous course is open to anyone wishing to challenge Jack Nicklaus' first solo design. Opened in 1976, Glen Abbey is held in high esteem by Tour players for its difficulty—7,112 yards, Slope 140 from the Black tees. "The Valley," a five-hole stretch from the 11th tee, is renowned as one of the PGA Tour's toughest, adding to the Glen Abbey mystique. Yet the course is surprisingly accommodating from the shorter tees. Glen Abbey will be remembered for years as the site of "The Shot of 2000"—Tiger Woods' 218 yard 6-iron from a fairway bunker on the 18th hole to set up the birdie that clinched the Bell Canadian Open and The Triple Crown. Here's a course that's not to be missed. Glen Abbey is a property of The Glen Abbey Trail.
