Hole #1 | Challenge

Ben Hogan once called this hole the toughest opening test in championship golf. The opening tee shot is from an elevated tee to a slight dogleg-left. A great drive can take advantage of a fairway down slope at the 290 yards. Allens Creek runs across the fairway hole at the 360 mark. The danger off the tee is out of bounds to the right and three bunkers on the left. The green is well guarded by grass hummocks and a greenside bunker short right.

Hole #2 | Breather

A precise tee shot is needed on this short par-4 due to the severely narrow fairway and deep fairway bunkers on both sides. The elevated green slopes severely from back to front. An approach shot below the hole gives the player the best chance for a birdie. Jason Dufner holed out his approach for eagle in 2013 to help secure the 2013 PGA Championship.

Hole #3 | Vista

The first par-3 requires a shot with a mid or long iron to a green that slopes predominately from back to front. Three deep bunkers guard the green in front. A ball that lands on the front third of the green has a minimal chance of staying on due to an aggressive false front.

Hole #4 | The High and Mighty

The only par-5 on the front requires a very precise tee shot to have a chance of reaching the green in two. Bunkers and out of bounds guard the right side while trees run along the left. The green slopes from back to front with deep bunkers short-left and short-right guarding the green.

Hole #5 | Little Poison

A two-tiered green surrounded by four deep bunkers requires an accurate tee shot to have a chance at birdie. A shot that misses long will make it very challenging to save par. When planning an approach, pay attention to the hole location to ensure the best chances for a scoring opportunity.

Hole #6 | Double Trouble

This long par-4 doglegs slightly to the right, with fairway bunkers on the left and water up the right. An exacting tee shot is a must to have a chance at hitting this green in regulation. Allens Creek meanders across the fairway and protects long and left of this multi-tiered green complex. A thoughtful approach shot depending on the hole location is needed for any opportunity for a birdie.

Hole #7 | Creek's Elbow

With Allens creek winding up the right side of the hole then crossing the fairway, plus a thick strand of trees left, this tee shot must be carefully placed. Many players may use a fairway wood or long iron to ensure safety off the tee. The approach shot is uphill to one of the most challenging greens on the course.

Hole #8 | Wayside

Compared to the previous two holes, the driving area is rather generous. The fairway zig gags between a bunker on each side that could provide challenge on an errant tee shot. Three deep greenside bunkers guard this rather large green.

Hole #9 | Needle's Eye

The par-4 ninth is a tough uphill dogleg right with a fairway that narrows the farther up a tee shot goes. Any drive on the right side runs the risk of out of bounds or being blocked out by overhanging trees. The approach shot is likely a mid-iron to a green that slopes from back to front. Missing long or left could provide a challenging up and down for par.

Hole #10 | Council Grove

The back nine won’t provide the player much relief and Council Grove is the start. Once again, a long par four with Allen’s Creek crossing the fairway just over 300 yards away from the tee. The approach to the putting green has been widened but the green is guarded by deep bunkers and an expanded putting surface.

Hole #11 | Creekside

The 11th Hole has new challenges with expanded teeing areas and a slightly different look with the front right area of the putting green moved closer to Allen’s Creek and an expanded area in the rear left. The bunkers protect the green that was raised up from its prior location by approximately one foot.

Hole #12 | Leaning Oak

The Leaning Oak continues its legacy on the 12th Hole but members will notice the two bunkers have been added into the landing area for longer players. Strategy will be important in club selection on the drive for this hole. A long drive can carry the first bunker leaving a short iron to the green. From the tee, the bunkers appear closer together than they are. The optimal drive will land between the two fairway bunkers. Second shots from these bunkers will be challenging and smart players will try to avoid these. A small area of hummocks is added to the right rough. The green contours continue to be challenging but no major changes have been made to this putting green. The green side bunkers can be avoided but create a menacing look for the second shot.

Hole #13 | Hill of Fame

The 13th Hole has a new look from the area of the third shot to the green approach. The bunkers have changed slightly but the fairway has been extended to the back of the second bunker which will allow a risk/reward second shot to carry the bunkers and perhaps roll towards the green. In the past, the thick rough on the right hill would catch all shots making the shot not worth the attempt. The last tree on the left that would force the player to hit a low approach shot in the past has been removed but the opening to the green is narrow and surrounded by deep bunkers. The putting green has been completely rebuilt and will allow for a variety of flag stick locations which were not possible with the prior green. The new putting green has a somewhat square shape with rounded corners that is inspired by the original Ross design. There are no longer bunkers in the rear, but the slope will challenge a recovery shot to a back pin.

Hole #14 | Bunker Hill

One of the most dramatic holes on the newly restored East Course will be the Fourteenth Hole, aptly named “Bunker Hill”. Over time, a number of trees have filled in the entire left side of the 14th hole and several trees also lined the majority of the right side. For most golfers, there was one only way to play the hole which was to hit a precise shot in a small section of the fairway, just as the hill begins to rise. Errant drives required a punch out to the middle with an attempt to get the third shot on the elevated green to save par or bogey. Fourteen is the ultimate “risk and reward” hole on the back nine. The new 14th hole will give the player options that did not exist before.

Hole #15 | The Plateau

The Plateau is back! A short par three inspired by the original Donald Ross hole and by its cousin, the 3rd Hole at Wannomoisett provides a birdie chance on the back nine. The much photographed but unpopular pond is no longer a threat, but misses will require challenging shots. The green is built into the side of the hill with a position fairly close to the green that it replaced. The green has depth from front to back but will create a challenging recovery shot from either side. The left bunker will create a challenging shot directly across. The right side drop off is up to 8 feet and creates a blind shot to the target.

Hole #16 | Straight Away

The 16th Hole has been lengthened by extending the Championship tee and lowering of all the teeing areas. Trees have been removed down the right side, but two bunkers have been added that may impact the drive. A bunker is located on the left approximately 50 yards short of the green which may trick the player into believing that this bunker is closer to the green than it looks. The green is perched on a slope with a bunker on the right and a steep drop off to the left and rear.

Hole #17 | Twin Tees

17 plays as a par five for the members and a par four for major championships. The tee shot must hug the right side, or the drive may go through the fairway on the left side. Hit it in the rough on the left side and you will probably be chipping out to the fairway. The putting green is now guarded by a series of uneven hummocks on the right side and bunkers on the left.

Hole #18 | Goin' Home

The 18th Hole continues to be a challenging finishing hole which will require a long and precise drive with new fairway bunkers which will test the player who attempts to cut the corner of the dogleg. The final walk to our famous Tudor clubhouse now features a putting surface with more depth in the right rear section and repositioned bunkers. The putting green has shifted slightly to the right and will allow for increased flag stick locations and create challenging recovery shots. The American Flag on the Hill of Fame is now visible from the 18th fairway to welcome our members and their guests’ home and give them one more chance for a great shot to remember their round. Make a par, sign your card, shake your opponent’s hand. Well played. Come back again.
