Short and straight, but nevertheless demanding. The long hitter can gain the green with his drive and indeed there has been some argument among the arrogant as to whether a slight left to right fade is preferable to a straight right to left draw. However, most play two irons to the green and are satisfied with par and an occasional birdie. 287 Yards, Par 4, Number 9 handicap. This Golf Art print is No. 4 of Loyal H. Chapman's "18 Infamous Golf Holes" series.
