10. Fairway bunker, par-4 10th hole, Augusta National G.C., Augusta, Ga.
Originally a lacy greenside bunker, it became a pretty but ineffectual fairway bunker when the green was moved 60 yards back nearly 80 years ago. Today it's a true icon, the last untouched Alister Mackenzie bunker at Augusta. More than 400 yards from the tee, it's set decoration now, but technology may someday bring it back into play.
