Hole 13

Par 3 / Brown Tees: 228 / Blue Tees: 182 / Green Tees: 155 / Red Tees: 119

This green is a semi-redan green of about 7,000 square feet, with an elevation change from bunker to green of 8 feet. The right side of a redan green that sets up right to left would normally be 2 feet higher than the left. However, with the speed of today’s greens, the slope on this green drops about 8 to 9 inches. Redan greens were first introduced in America during the 1920s by such great golf course architects as Donald Ross and Seth Raynor.

This is as close to a true redan green as you will find in south Florida. With sand completely around the left and rear of the green and a bunker beyond a shelf of closely mown grass on the right, this green reads as a pseudo-island green. The tees are elevated for a clear view of the green. The back tees, however, are a bit lower, offering a slightly obstructed view of the green with an uphill carry of over 200 yards. This is truly a classic golf hole.
