Bobby Jones pays great respect to this short but challenging par 3 in his book “Down the Fairway” describing the hole as “another disastrous mashie-niblick hole” (a 7-iron today and one of very few shots that Jones confesses he never mastered). Jones stated that this hole contributed to costing him the National Amateur Championship to Max Marston in 1923. The green area features a front bunker and a bent grass approach to the pond’s edge. Players ending up in the collar area around the green will have a choice of chipping, putting or lobbing a shot back to the pin.

It can't be ignored. It's in play on all sets of tee boxes, the original tees on the right and the most recent from the left side of the hole. It's a full carry, so put a good swing on this one. Remember your wind direction, as you turned around to play this par 3.
Two deep bunkers front the left and right edges of this green. They may actually save an errant shot from finding the water.
A good sized green to accept your tee shot, it slopes from back left to front right. There's a large run off area behind the green. Players ending up in the new collar area will now have a choice of chipping, putting or lobbing a shot back to the pin.
