Hole #14: GolfScout's Take
Hole 14. This is the northernmost spot on the golf course. Just north of you, the Skokie River merges with the North Branch of the Chicago River. There's walking and bike trails back there too in Watersmeet Woods. Wilmette has it all.
At 342 yards, the 14th is a manageable par 4. In a familiar move here, there's a fairway bunker on the left side that's gonna interfere with your best laid plans. It's 240 yads from the back tees. Feeling good about yourself? You can try to fly it, but things get tight up there, so you'll need to throw a dart.
The aforementioned Skokie and Chicago rivers can sometimes cause this hole to get wet. Last time I played here, there was a good amount of standing water; one of the photos below shows the evidence.
The green features two bunkers and sort of an uphill false front.
