Hole #12, Par 5
Two extraordinary well placed shots will give you an opportunity for a rare eagle on this stunning and much photographed hole, but, after an “Average” drive, you’ll find a plaque in the center of the fairway indicating 208 yards to water, 218 yards to clear water. Most golfers will play a layup for their second shot, short of a meandering creek, leaving an approach of 100 to 130 yards to an elevated bean shaped narrow green lying horizontal to the line of play in an amphitheater like setting. You must traverse out of bounds left, a lake on the right and an undulating fairway to reach the layup area. The approach shot must be struck with authority and accuracy because the approach often plays a little longer than it looks. After three well played shots, two good putts on this seemingly flat, but actually rolling green can yield par on this demanding but spectacular hole. Number 12 is the photograph on your scorecard.
