The toughest golf course on the planet might well be one of its shortest. It's called the Bad Little Nine, and it's the brainchild of PXG and GoDaddy founder Dr. Bob Parsons. Dr. Parsons commissioned Jackson Kahn Design to build this amazingly difficult, intimidating par-3 course on the property at his Scottsdale National (along with another course called, originally, the Other Course, which is amazing).

The Bad Little Nine is really tough. Bunkering everywhere. Crazy green complexes. Funky shots that make your stomach churn. And, yet, it's the most fun ass-kicking you'll take this side of a Dublin bar.
