Hole 12 Par 3 202 yards

Hole Guide

The 202-yard 12th hole provides golfers with one of the hardest par 3s around. The green is the firmest on the course ensuring that any balls landing in the middle or back of the surface will run off the green into rough or sand. The bunker which guards the front left of the green will favour those who can fly their ball in from right to left. This is a challenging short hole where par is an excellent score.
