The Making of Westhaven's 13th


The winning hole was designed by Doug Wright, a recent graduate of Lehigh University, where he majored in civil engineering. Doug's hole features a wide fairway with a couple of bunkers that asks players to go either left or right off the tee.

A third option is to lay up short of the first bunker, leaving a long approach to the uphill green that is angled to favor the narrower right side. 

"The split-fairway concept is something we hadn't used elsewhere at Westhaven," says Arthur Hills, "so it brought diversity to the routing. He created a hole that relies on the strategic use of angles."
