|HOLE No. 11par 4 443 yards|
|MEMBERS DELIGHT in not telling first-time visitors about the pond 100 yards ahead of the tee on the blind drive; it was a narrow ditch until the 1960s. The fairway slopes left to right; the bunker on the right side helps guard the 14th green from errant drives. |
The approach is one of the most strategic on the course. The fairway slope is more pronounced in front of the green, sending shots to the right, but a large left bunker at the high point short of the green will catch a shot pulled too far. The ideal shot would be a draw, taking the front right bunker out of play, but it must be hit from a fairway lie with the ball below your feet.
The green is one of the most contoured on the course. A new chipping area to the right collects approaches that run too hard from the left. No putt on the green is easy.
