Course Tour : Hole 12


"Drain on right; watch the hazard"

Bob Charles’ advice for playing the 12th hole

Another great-looking hole. This par four is short on paper, but long on danger. Left and down into the tree-covered gulch is in deep trouble and will often mean another hit from the tee or a drop. Right isn’t much better, with a drain running most of the length of the fairway. Longer hitters will have to be especially straight, as anything in the two fairway bunkers makes for a very difficult second. The approach requires good distance control, as bunkers guard back left and front right and a deceptively tricky hollow guards around the front and left. Out-of-bounds or a very demanding chip down the slope of the green awaits those long with their seconds.
