Hole #13: GolfScout's Take

Pay no attention to the creek that runs through the 13th hole. At 140 yards to the water from the black tees, it's not in play for this 371 yard par 4 unless you really set your mind to it. It's more of a distraction from the real issue you'll face here, which is the trees that encroach on the narrow fairway from the right.

The green is a slick two tiered surface in the shape of a kidney. A pot bunker defends the front-right of the green, which you absolutely want to stay out of.

Another issue here is the OB fence to the right. Righties with big slices risk losing their ball to the gravel pits of that industrial strip east of the course. I bet they find hundreds of balls a week over there. Golf ball resale is probably a decent side hustle for those folks.
