This downhill par-3 usually requires no more than a medium iron to the large, undulating green. Put the ball on the wrong part of the green, however, and a three-putt is likely.

1934 yardage: 185, par 3

Original Intent

"With the ball stopping either short of this raised area (back plateau) or off to the left of it, it is an extremely difficult job to get the first putt close to the hole."
--- Bobby Jones

Significant changes

- Pond filled in at front of green, 1959

Did it work?

The cosmetic change has had no real effect for tournament play. Putting the tee shot on the proper side of the green is crucial.
