The par three seventh hole has you facing directly out to the Pacific Ocean, as the waves crash against the coast. The hole is short, yet difficult as you will be battling the wind.
The eighteenth hole follows alongside of the coast as you make your approach, pretending you are in the lead at the final round of the U.S. Open.
