Robert Trent Jones Sr. considered this one of the country's great par-3 holes. The players will probably hit a 4- or 5-iron to a green that is 30 feet above the tee and is protected on all sides by deep bunkers. The green has severe slopes with a ridge running from front right to back center. A hole location on the back right makes for one of the most demanding tee shots in championship golf.
