West Seattle Golf Course Hole #12

515 Yards Par 5 - Our signature hole was voted into 'Seattle's Dream 18' by the Seattle Times and Seattle Metropolitan Magazine voted it 'Seattle's Most Difficult Hole' but it simply should be considered 'Seattle's Most Beautiful Hole'. Your tee ball needs to thread the tight corridor of trees as you cross Longfellow Creek. The view from the tee lays out the entire hole in front of you with a gorgeous backdrop of Seattle's skyline in the distance. The landing area demands a precise shot with a fairway bunker on the left and a hazard on the right. The second shot is guarded on both the left and right by Longfellow Creek which is re-directed under the fairway at about the 100 yard mark. The green is elevated some 30 feet which makes the yardage difficult to pinpoint as you are playing a blind shot. The back to front sloping green is guarded by the creek on the left, Out of Bounds on the right and a greenside bunker short left.
