This hole is the start of what is known as the Horrible Horseshoe. The perfect spot to be is between the 4th green and the 5th tee box. The par 3 itself is a daunting task measuring 247 yards.
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.
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.
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.
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.
