The only trouble is, you can't reach that final hole without a helicopter or a grappling hook. After a sudden landslide carved a scythe-shaped gorge through the par 4 hole and tore away a 500-foot run of sewer line, developers of the Ranchos Palos Verdes course say they have yet to figure out a way to repair the damage.
