Hole 11

Torrance

The longest par 5 on the course, this hole is wide open off the tee, and a long drive is a must if you intend to reach the green in two. Beware, however, the cross bunkers that traverse almost the entire fairway just 45 yards in front of the dance floor. The downhill approach must land on an opposing sloped green, which is built on a plateau surrounded by three bunkers and long grasses on heavily sloped inclines. The green makes for an uncertain 2-putt.

Member’S Tip:

The longest hole on the course only reachable in two shots by the longer hitters. A straight tee shot is required to miss the bunkers left and right, once you have achieved this and depending on how far your drive has travelled a mid to long iron layup shot just short of the cross bunkers will leave you a short iron into a large elevated green that slopes back to front. There are bunkers left and right of the green but be careful not to miss the green long of these bunkers as the slopes will repel a slightly off line approach shot down toward the gorse. Avoid going in the cross bunkers at all costs as making a par from these will require a very good shot to get on the green. Leave yourself short of the pin for a chance of birdie or a two putt par, which is always a good score on this hole.
