Hole 14 Go to 13

No. 14

410 Yards
Par 4

 

Players will want to use a club off the tee that will enable them to have an approach of 150 yards or less. This is a demanding driving hole with out of bounds tight on the left and trees on the right. The green looks relatively benign from the fairway but in reality it's severely sloped from back to front. Players need to control their distance and spin due to the false front. Approach shots missing left or right will lead to a tough recovery. In the 1946 U.S. Open, Ben Hogan hit his second shot down the bank left of the green and wound up making a quadruple-bogey 8.
