West Shore Country Club
Par 5, 537 yards
Architect: George Morris
At a glance: This is a double dogleg with plenty of personality. You must
take on three bunkers on the right side off the tee.
Todd Love started at West Shore as an assistant professional in
1996. He’s served as head professional since 2017.
“The 12th hole is special because it gives you many options. You can make
eagle to triple bogey,” Love, 47, of Harrisburg, Pa., said. “Cross bunkers
and a creek that separates fairways give you two second shot options.
Depending on the tee, you can hit driver to driving iron. You need to be
short of the cross bunkers. Once you are off the tee, options still exist. A
good drive, you can go for the green, or to the fairway right of the creek.
A bad drive, you need to go over the bunkers to the fairway on the left
side. A good drive doesn’t mean birdie is coming. You miss the green in
two on either side with a tough hole location and even par is in doubt.”
