Hole 18

Hole 18

Par 4 / Brown Tees: 454 / Blue Tees: 421 / Green Tees: 377 / Red Tees: 305

Setting up right to left, this is a great par four finishing hole. If you’re going to err, err a bit to the right. The front tee is far enough forward to give the ladies a fighting chance. And whether you drive or walk over the bridge onto the eighteenth fairway, you will get another sensational view of the Clubhouse. Here again, the hole sets upslightly right to left off the front and back tees. But when you get to the green, it sets up left to right.

There is a variety of the bunkering on the front right about a 100 yards short of the green. But there’s at least a 60-foot opening in front of the green, so I don’t know how it can get much better. If possible, try to stay out of the bunkers on the right, especially that little 3 footer up there; if your ball lands in that one, it can really ruin your day. There’s plenty of room to bounce around on the left side of the green, so if you hit a good one, you should make par.
