172 Yards – Redan Par 3
Modeled after the 15th hole at North Berwick in Scotland, the Redan is considered by many to be the best par 3 design in golf. Famed architect C.B. MacDonald brought the template to the United States, and he describes, “Take a narrow tableland, tilt it a little from right to left, dig a deep bunker on the front side, approach it diagonally and you have a Redan. Even with improved technology of the last century, the design has stood the test, rewarding a tee ball that utilizes the contouring and penalizing aggressive lines imperfectly played. The tabletop green is oriented at a 45 degree angle with menacing deep bunkers left, right, and long. The prudent play is to take aim at the front right and use the kick slope to channel your ball onto the green…par is a great score here.
