  • #5

       The par-4 481-yard 5th is another tough hole. There were over 100 bogeys and 22 double bogeys + last year. Even if you surive hole 4 and 5, you still have the final leg of the "Horrible Horseshoe" waiting for you.

  • #13

       This is one of the most recognizable holes on this course. It was famous for the caddie races.It is still a great hole to view. The par 3 is 190 yards over water.

  • #16

       The 16th hole is another par 3 and popular place to watch golf. This par 3 measures 192 yards and the green is covered in shade thanks to a CBS TV tower and boxes.

  • #18

       The par 4-441-yard 18th is a fantastic hole to finish. The clubhouse is right by the green and the crowds are usually lined up. The green is protected by 2 bunkers and water along the side.
