The Eighteenth: A delightful par five played against the backdrop of the clubhouse which towers 250 feet above. The landing area for one’s tee shot is generous short, with bunkers right and left to catch the ambitious but inaccurate longer hitters. With the prevailing wind behind one, the longer hitter has an opportunity to reach the green in two, challenging the large pond that lines the right hand side of the fairway and the front of this split level green. For the more conservative golfer, one’s second is tight with a steep fescued bank on the left and water on the right. Provided one has threaded the needle, however, the green opens up and a short iron could see one nestled close to the flag, provided one doesn’t let your approach drift right into the valley of sin that will make two putting very difficult. A definite birdie or double bogey hole, five is easily achievable for those not wanting to risk it all! A perfect finishing hole with a multiple of possible outcomes!
