No.13 372 yards
par 4

This is the shortest and tightest par 4 on the golf course. The objective off the tee will have little to do with length, but rather with a player's ability to control the distance that he hits the tee shot. This is a sharp dogleg right hole that has tall pines lining both sides of the fairway. A bunker on the right side steers tee shots to the left center of the fairway but players need to make sure they do not hit too far down the left side or they can be blocked out for the second. An iron off the tee will be the smart play for most players. A short-iron approach shot to this slightly elevated green will require pinpoint control of distance in order to get the ball close. A series of bunkers guard the front of this heavily contoured green that is shallow from front to back. When the wind blows, it will be in the player's face and this will make club selection all the more critical. A player must hit enough club to carry the bunkers, but make sure he stays below the hole because downhill putts will be hard to get close on this one.
