Only 135 yards separates the golfer from a putt for birdie at ten. But the hole is exemplary of Tillinghast’s greenside defenses. From the tee, the golfer is confronted with a narrow target. The green sits above substantial bunkers that flank it left and right. These bunkers are designed to collect shots that err slightly – like those that kick off the side of the green – or, especially on the right, those that waiver substantially off course because of the presence of mounds that will thrust the offending shot into the sand from the other direction. Being long isn’t the alternative of choice, either. So, ten is a superb example of hitting the green – or making a bogey.
