Hole 12 - Par 5
Black-568, Blue-537, White-490, Burgundy-444, Green-407, Gold-343
What a beast! Uphill, long, and narrow in spots, the par five 12th is perhaps the most difficult hole on the mountain – especially for the recreational golfer. More clearing and under brushing will help clean up the right side and open up a view of the creek area. The fairway will extend across the cart path and run all the way to the creek crossing, making the forced carry much more manageable for shorter hitters. A target bunker on the left side will aid in selecting the proper line of play, and drainage will be added to dry up the newly extended fairway.
On the green side of the crossing, the bunkers will be long and slender, just enough to keep errant balls in play. The playable area will widen onto a low shelf that runs midway down the slope along the left side of this hole. The shelf will not only widen the playable area, it will be seen as a noteworthy architectural feature that encourages more aggressive play. A new forward tee will be added.
