Hole Guide:

One of the most famous short holes in the game, the 12th provides a breathtaking sight on a sunny day with Rae's Creek in front of the putting surface. With swirling winds, club selection can range from a 6-to a 9-iron.

No risks can be taken on the shortest par 3 on the course. As well as the Creek, the green is protected by a bunker in front and two behind. This is a spine-tingling spectacle of a hole that sadly we only get to see once a year.
