This tough par-3 requires a long-iron shot to the green, which is guarded by a pair of bunkers.

1934 yardage: 190, par 3

Original Intent

"The length of this hole can be varied a great deal, depending upon use of the back tee or the rear portion of the forward tee. From the back tee the shot is usually a strong iron or even a 4- or 3-wood."
--- Bobby Jones

Significant changes

- Tee moved back 30-35 yards for 2006

Did it work?

Yes, the added length is forcing players to attack this club with longer clubs, and birdies are still rare.
