The 18th hole at Harbour Town Golf Links, Hilton Head, SC.
The 18th at Harbour Town is one of the most recognizable finishing holes in all of golf and one of the most difficult.
The famed lighthouse that oversees the concluding green has seen the legends of the game walking to Triumph up the closing fairway. Before the champion is crowned, the 18th ensures there is work to be done.
This dogleg left has a generpusly proportioned landing area. The further left the ball is placed in the fairway that is sculpted into the tidal zone, the shorter the second shot.
The approach shot is where trouble awaits. The green accepts approaches tbat are ‘all carry.’ There is no provision for anything less. For the amateur player, this means a fairway wood or longish iron that will be entireily at risk before it reaches the putting surface. The salt marsh protrudes in front and to the left of the green, which has secondary guardians in healthy bunkers that are deep and menacing. By no means are two putts a certainty.
