Hole 18 - Par 4 - 493 Yards

< Back to Hole 17

The closing hole is home to the most demanding tee shot on the South Course. The fairway slopes to the left on this dogleg right, making it difficult to hit with bunkers on both sides and out of bounds left. The mid-iron second shot is slightly uphill to a shallow green protected by four bunkers. A mound through the center separates the contour of the green, where the ball must end up on the same side of the hole. Otherwise, the putt over the mound will be difficult.
