Description:
The new tee installed in 2002 puts a driver back into most players hands. The hole features a narrow fairway to an elevated, well-bunkered green.

1934 yardage: 340, par 4


Original Intent

"Length is certainly not at a premium here, but the narrow fairway seems to have an added impact because it suddenly confronts the player just when he has become accustomed to the broad expanses of the preceding holes. ... The second shot is normally a steep pitch, often with a wedge, and precise judgment of range is required."
--- Bobby Jones


Significant changes

- Green relocated and bunkers added, 1938

- Tee moved back 35-40 yards, 2006

- Trees added to both sides of fairway, 2006

- Green rebuilt for possible right-rear pin position, 2006


Did it work?

Accuracy off the tee and the added length have made this a more difficult hole. The small, heavily bunkered green now requires more than a short iron approach and yields fewer birdies.
