Click for Description
This slightly elevated tee looks down a long straightaway par 4. The wall of trees on the left hides a parallel water hazard. At 270 yards, two fairway bunkers flank the right side. The approach is guarded only by a gentle upslope, and deep bunkers left and right will punish any short-sided miss. The unique Tillinghast scalloped bunker at the rear comes into play when the hole is cut at the back, although rarely so. It does, however, provide a perception of where the green is both off the tee and from the second shot. An arcing ridge separates the steeply sloping front from the flatter rear plateau on this green. Front-left and top-right hole locations are most difficult.
