Players must negotiate Ikes Tree off the tee, but for most its a short-iron second shot into a rock-hard green.

1934 yardage: 145, par 3

Original Intent

"Depending upon the wind, a fine drive may leave a second shot requiring anything from a good 5-iron or easy 4 to a short pitch."
--- Bobby Jones

Significant changes

- Tee moved back 10-15 yards, 2006

Did it work?

Ike's Tree isn't a problem for big hitters, but others still struggle to hit it far enough to have a good look at the green. Golfers want to hit as short a club as possible for their approach to this difficult green.
