The Front Nine layout and hole information
The Front Nine is a perfect complement to the Player designs. His layout also offers plenty of run-up opportunities to his greens, which are generally a little larger than Player’s, but with more severe undulations. The par-3 fourth requires a carry over a waste bunker that takes up most of the yardage between tee and green. But it’s the signature sixth that’ll give you stories to tell, or explanations to make. Again under 300 yards from the tips, just 250-275 from the middle tees, its one of Bobby Weed’s ultimate risk/reward opportunities. The largest lake on the entire course runs down the entire right side, then wraps around behind the green while pot bunkers and the course’s largest berm rise up to snatch shots hit left or short. Miss the pin by 10 yards right or left and you’re cooked more than the delicious hot dog you got from the friendly cart attendant. That shortest par-4 at Hilton Head National is followed by the shortest par-3, a do-or-die 102-138 yarder over more pristine marshland.
