Course designers have mixed up challenging and tough

Regarding the article on brutal golf courses: I think most serious golfers want to be challenged when they step on to the tee. It is not just the pretty views that create a great course, but the enjoyment different golfers can take away with them. A good course will be able to challenge golfers of all levels.

Personally I prefer challenging golf courses, holes that make you think, holes where you only get par if you play the hole well. Unfortunately, too many designers have mixed up challenging and tough.
