11PAR 5 618 YARDS
Playing more than 600 yards, this hole will challenge most players to hit driver, but anything straying right will be swallowed by sand dunes, bunkers and a severe drop-off. The second shot must avoid a huge sand bunker on the left extending out to about 100 yards from the green. This “sand box” is more than 16 feet deep and would leave a player with a blind shot into the green. A conservative play leaves 110 to 130
yards for the approach shot. The approach shot plays to a small, elevated green with any shot landing on the front edge likely to roll back down well off the green and anything slight long likely to fall into a sand bunker guarding the back center of the green.
