1934 yardage: 430, par 4
"A tee shot played to the right which does not avail itself of the slope will add at least two club numbers to the length of the second shot, in addition to which the approach to the green must be made across the slopes, rather than directly into them. A good drive down the left side usually makes it possible to play the second with a medium iron, sometimes even less if the wind be behind."

- Green relocated from fairway bottom to current location, 1937
- Tee moved back 5-10 yards and moved five yards to the golfer's left, 2002
Did it work?
Historically the most difficult hole on the course, the long par-4 requires two solid shots. Moving the green turned a relatively tame hole into a monster.
