WHAT The Pines Golf Course
WHERE Bethel, Ohio
COST $1.275 million
HOOK The Pines, designed by Robert Taylor, was built
in 2002 on 125 acres of farmland about five miles from the Ohio River and is
only 6,066 yards long--short but sweet.
FRINGE BENEFIT When you buy this course you get a
dividend: two extra holes, making it the rare (perhaps only) 20-hole, par-76
layout. Why? The owner, a bit of an eccentric, simply didn't feel as if he'd
had enough golf when he got through with 18, so he tacked on two extras.
