This hole will play all of its yardage and then some. The tee shot must find a right-to-left sloping fairway that lies between a well-placed bunker on the right and trees on the left. Although a straightforward uphill hole, No. 12 demands two strong shots to reach the green. Its beauty and challenge make this hole the quintessential example of a Tillinghast parkland golf hole. The first of Tillinghast’s “deception” bunkers on the course is approximately 75 yards from the green on the left side of the fairway. The uphill second shot is played into an extremely difficult green that slopes from back to front and is flanked by deep bunkers left and front-right, with an original grass bunker on the right. Players who find themselves above the hole on the 12th might well be off the green after the initial putt, much like the first green.
