Hole 18 - “The Last Temptation”,
|Hole #18 is one of the best finishing holes in Indian River County. Named “The Last Temptation”, this demanding par four entices the golfer to bring water into play, yet it is not entirely necessary. A large pond is situated on the right side of the hole, which creates a dogleg right appearance to the layout. The green is slightly elevated and is guarded by three (3) bunkers, one of which is about twenty yards in front of the green.
PRO TIP – In a prevailing southeast wind, this hole can play extremely long. Favor the left side of the fairway off of the tee. Most golfers should play this hole as a short par five, taking the water out of play and laying-up on the second shot. Don’t be fooled by the front greenside bunker, there is still a lot of room in between the bunker and the green.
