In a way, the 18th hole is a combination of every golf shot, every design treatment and every setting created on the rest of the holes at Shadow Creek. Alternate tee positions are set into a high ridge to offer various angles on the tee shot. Water on the right flows from the green toward the tee into three lakes which are broken by three waterfalls.

A long, high-ridge line travels from the tee up the left side and then the hole doglegs at the landing area, which is about 25 feet above the water. Playing safely to the left will bring golfers to a second dogleg, just short of a bend in the lake. Then it’s an approach across water and bunkers to the long narrow green that’s framed by steep hills, dense trees and flowers.

The finishing hole was purposely planned as a par five so that we would have room to reprise as many design elements as possible. This hole calls to mind the environment surrounding the entire property and, we hope, the exhilaration of playing golf at a place as special as Shadow Creek.
