Hole 18: Par 4
White Tees: 295 yards
Gold Tees: 270 yards
Red Tees: 268 yards
The finishing hole is a short par 4 that offers the golfer a final respite after the difficult holes before it. Out of bounds runs along the entire right side of the hole and around the back of the green, while lateral hazard runs up the left side of the hole for 230 yards from the white tees. Beyond the lateral hazard, the left side turns to out of bounds by Madeline’s Deli which is situated on the left and behind the green and is a popular place to get a sandwich or a beverage after the round. Sand traps can be found on the left and right sides of the green as well as directly over the green making a precise approach important. The putting surface is relatively flat, meaning shots that find the green will allow for aggressive putts to finish the round.
Pro’s Tip: Play the club that will leave a preferred distance on the second shot creating a comfortable approach. If the pin is on the left side of the green, aiming dead at it is the correct play and can yield a birdie. Aim for the center of the green if the pin is behind the front right trap on the right side of the green.
