1934 yardage: 420, par 4
"The front area of this green is nicely molded to receive a pitch and provide a good putt for a birdie when the hole is cut here. Yet a ball driven to the left side of the fairway safely away from the trees must be pitched quite closely over the guarding bunker."
--- Bobby Jones
- Double bunker constructed left of fairway landing area, 1967
- Tee moved back 55-60 yards and moved to the golfer's right five yards, 2002
- Bunker complex adjusted, 2002
Did it work?
Yes. The closing hole is no longer a cream puff finish. Although big hitters can still reach it with a short iron, the tee shot is now one of the most demanding on the course and bailing out left is not an option.
