About this hole
The par 5 11th hole can only be described as a lot of golf hole. Traversing the entire eastern border of the golf course, the elevated tee shot plays over a valley. A sentinel mound to the right of the first landing area marks the most direct line to the green. Nestled into the base of it is the first of three fairway bunkers. Another rumpled fairway runs along the base of an oak savanna ridge along the left before splitting in two directions around a second ridge punctuated by a pair of bunkers cut into the base.
Strategically a mirror image of the par 5 fourth hole, the first par 5 of the back nine’s more direct line is the uphill fairway to the right. The left side is not as an abrupt route to the green, but one must cover more ground to get there in regulation (or sooner). Sand guards the green along that side as well. The green is a rolling exclamation point to this long dogleg-right. A ridge from the right bisects the front and back halves of the green.
