Any finishing hole that allows golfers to “do what they have to do” is a wonderful way to end the day—hopefully, in a good way.
Jim Pepple, Wyncote’s president and owner, thinks the best thing about his course’s 18th is the risk-reward factor. “Big hitters can make birdie, even eagle, since the green can be reached in two. But leave it short in the meadow grass, and you could be looking at a big number,” he says. “Most golfers will play our 18th with a solid drive down the right side, avoiding the bunker to the left, then hit a hybrid or fairway club left of the green area, leaving a wedge to get home.”
Eagle through double bogey—that’s a finishing hole that covers it all.
