At a glance: The hole has a Redan-esque green. The setting, and its natural
beauty, creates a wow factor.

“When you make your way to No.
14 tee at Weyhill, you can’t help
but take a moment to soak in a
spectacular vista that stares down at
the finishing holes and provides one
of the best views on the 850-acre
property. The tee is perched upon
one side of an abandoned quarry
while the green sits perilously atop
the other. A mid-to-long iron is
required to a generously large but difficult green; hitting it in regulation
by no means guarantees a stress-free par. Many a game of snake has been
turned upside down on this green.”
