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.
