557 yards, Par 5
From the back tee of this 557 yard par-5, the player is as far from the Atlantic as The Ocean Course permits, yet the view from here looks right into the rolling surf, framed between ancient live oaks that line both sides of the fairway. From the tee, the players will have to decide how much of the salt marsh to bite off with the tee shot. Then, depending on wind direction, they will have the opportunity to go for this elevated green set between two sand ridges with their second. Against the wind, this is a difficult three shot par-5.
