Hole #14, Par 4

Hole Description

This stout par 4 was originally going to be a par 5 except that the teeing area and the early part of the hole was traded for a right of way which now makes number fourteen the longest par four on the back side. It plays slightly uphill, usually into a prevailing breeze present on most days and requires a strong, well-placed tee shot. The hole runs along the woods on the left side and a grove of loosely spaced trees on the right separating number fourteen from number fifteen. The landing area is protected by bunkers on both sides of the fairway. The approach is played over a huge, scenic swale to a green with a steep false front protected by a bunker to the left and a collection bunker to the rear preventing most balls from going over a steep cliff. Keeping the ball below the hole is a must if you want to score well on this rugged and demanding hole. Deer often are seen grazing here.
