A long, long carry to reach the fairway is required form the back tee, from out of a chute of trees, with the old fairway bunkers on the right, and Tillinghast's original, and now restored series of fairway bunkers on the left. The tee shot should be hit farther right than seems apparent on the tee, as the rough on the left seems to swallow the tee shot all too easily. A good line is the shelter beside the green.
The green is tucked slightly to the left of the fairway line, and the approach shot must be carried over another hollow in front of the green. A wayward shot to the left, will leave you in the rough begging for mercy.
A deep bunker, guards the left side of the green, and a series of bunkers at the right front edge provide a well-hidden pin position, which can be almost impossible to find when hitting the long iron or fairway wood necessary to reach this green. Shots hit over the back of the green, fall rapidly into the collection area leaving a nasty putt or chip to come back to the green.
