This hole is the most difficult to conquer at Barefoot-Love.

Fresh off the heels of the shortest par 4 on the course at No. 4, designer Davis Love III comes back with a vengeance with the longest.

Mid-range hitters are faced with bunkers on both sides of the fairway, ready to penalize wayward tee shots.

You’ll need a long drive to clear them, and to have a chance at a straight-line, second-shot approach.

A greenside bunker front left protects a putting surface that slopes from back to front.
