Hole 18 Go to 17

No. 18

439 Yards
Par 4

 

One of the best finishing holes in all of golf. A long, uphill par 4 where an accurate drive is required. Pronounced bunkers protect the right side of the fairway from errant tee shots, while tall trees protect the fairway on the left. Second shots will require a long-to-mid iron to an uphill green. The green is heavily bunkered, but open from the center right to accept run-up shots. The green is fairly flat, but has some subtleties. If the player is not careful, putts can get away. During the 1946 U.S. Open, Ben Hogan three-putted from 15 feet and failed to earn a spot in the playoff, which was won in 36 holes by Lloyd Mangrum.
