Hole 16 | Par 4 – 467 yds (449, 406, 361, 329, 234)

Number sixteen is a wonderful par 4. The slight dogleg right has a fairway that comes to an end prior to the green so tee balls must be measured to be sure not to go too far and into a difficult lie in the rough. The green is capable of hosting some tight and difficult pin positions and hosts some small hidden bunkers behind and to the right of the putting surface.

Uphill to an elevated green, the seventeenth hole is the shortest of the par 3s. Hitting once again to the west, the wind and setting sun can be factors on the tee shot. The green is fair, but not quite as big as it may appear as the front right portion of the green is actually a false front. Any ball that does not carry beyond the ridge in the front right will trundle down the hill and leave a lengthy chip shot.
Hole 18 | Par 4 – 517 yds (443, 387, 356, 337, 271)

The work is far from over as you approach the tee of the long and difficult par 4 finishing hole. From the back tee the eighteenth is a dogleg right that demands a well-struck and well-placed tee ball. Around the corner as the fairway ends, golfers catch sight of a massive cluster of bunkers guarding the front of the green. The quadrilateral shaped punch bowl style green is elevated above the fairway and is quite large, but will still require a well struck approach, probably from the fairway, in order to access any pins in the front half of the green. It’s a phenomenal finishing hole and final test of the day on this Steve Smyers masterpiece.
