A signature hole of the course includes the 308 yard 2nd hole, which is definitely the most thrilling. It is played on a steep slope on a green that bears to the right but is lined by a pond on the left side. To further challenge the player, a large bunker was created on the right, and a small ditch in front. This hole certainly shows the architect’s aim to create a hole which is easy to bogey, but difficult to birdie!
