Hole 18—Par 5
This is a hole that just cried out, “Here I am.”
There is more of an angle to the cliff here than on the 10th, making it more visible, and the ravine in front of the green is an incredible feature. It is a hole that anyone who plays golf will love and it is a great finish.
At the same time we wanted people to have fun and enjoy the conclusion, so making it a three-shot hole made sense.
One of the keys here is the narrow, serpentine green. Players who play away from the ravine and the water will face a tricky shot back towards the cliff with only a slight area of green to receive the ball. Will they make the bold play when faced with the ocean as a backdrop? I expect there will be a lot of flubbed chips as they come towards the green!
