LOCATION Pine Valley, N.J. ARCHITECTS George Crump and H.S. Colt PAR 4 YARDAGE 483 The final hole of the consensus No. 1 course in the world distills the essence of the entire course: grand scale with the hole forming its own arena surrounded by massive pines, elevation changes (downhill tee shot leading to an uphill second shot), sandy scrub everywhere, large fairway, water hazard on the approach, huge undulating green (its size is 11,000 square feet). And as on every hole at Pine Valley, even a minor misstep can quickly multiply into a triple bogey—or worse.
