The finishing hole affords an excellent view of the clubhouse, and the drive should be aimed straightaway at the flagpole flying “Old Glory.” An equalizing downslope at the 240-yard mark will likely leave most players with an uphill middle-iron into the green. Again, Tillinghast plays with visual perception, as another “deception” bunker on the course initially appears to be greenside from a drive on the right side of the fairway, but is actually 85 yards short of the putting surface. A hole cut on the extreme right will force players to negotiate a bunker whose encroaching front corner cannot be seen from the fairway. This is a demanding approach shot to a large, uphill green.
 
   The recently restored cross bunkers approximately 135-150 yards from the putting surface.
