Pro's Tip: This hole is ranked among The Des Moines Register's "18 toughest golf holes." Position tee shot right of center and about 155-165 yards out. The position of this shot is crucial to have a chance at par. Anything long is in the pond or comes to rest on a severe downhill lie. Be sure to thank "George" if you par.
