Hole 18 Description
The 18th is a masterpiece of a par five for a finishing hole. Joe Lee started with a par 5 and fittingly finishes with one. When the match is on the line this rare double dogleg adds to the challenge and enjoyment for all golfers. From the Kenny Perry, blue, and white tees golfers face a hole that has strategically placed bunkers, water protecting the right side of the green, and a sloping green that demands staying below the hole. The tee positions for the gold red, and silver players still leave all the excitement but remove the first dogleg. The famous signature Bent Pine tree finds many tee shots that wander left. Golfers of all abilities will have to avoid the bunkers just beyond the tree on their drive. Joe Lee gives golfers a bailout area on their second shot so they can avoid the fairway bunkers and pine tree 150 yards out from the green. If long hitters can avoid the lone towering pine and the bunkers beyond it, they can reach the green in two. Of course Joe Lee doesn’t let up when you get to the green. Bunkers left, right, and behind the green protect this back to front sloping green that tests the putting skill of all golfers one last time. Hole 18 is beautiful and tranquil with views across the lake to Hole 9 and the clubhouse overlooking the green. This gem provides the perfect ending to your round.
