Hole 5 (Par 3)
Tom Doak’s Proposal
Two of my strongest criticisms of the Ocean course were its set of par-3 holes, and the fact that no hole apart from the first really provided much of an ocean view. We are tackling both here, with a new short hole playing from the current 17th tee, to a natural hollow to the right of the 17th fairway, and the ocean as a backdrop beyond it. There is room to make this hole over 200 yards if we wanted to put a tee up by #5 green, but as the only short hole on the new front nine, we don’t think we want it to be that long.
