HOLE 18 - 580 Yards - Par 5
|<< Previous Hole|
With the Lake and Castle as given features the eighteenth hole was developed into one of the fine Par 5 finish holes in golf.
A tee shot from the marsh along the lake to a generous fairway is the start of this long Par 5. Cutting the comer is a possible way of messing up this hole. The open save carry is best for most players.
The second shot is long and scenic. The large sycamore tree is the line on the castle. The carry to the big sequoia tree is 240 Yards from the prime landing area.
From the large sycamore tree the player has 100 Yards left to the very contoured green, which protrudes to the front left with a deep bunker. A definite three shot hole for most players and as with holes 16 & 17, a Par here will be earned and remembered.
