One of the toughest holes at Concord, number twelve is a par four stretching up to 448 yards. A three-tiered elevated tee box yields stunning views of a very generous fairway. The fairway caps off at 100 yards from the green, where a small pond waits to penalize mis-hit approach shots. Many members elect to lay up short of the pond with their second, due to a steep incline of 60+ feet rising up to the green. Twelve’s green is closely protected by bunkers right and left, and a steep false front will reject incoming approach shots without proper distance control. A very large green sloping back to front is never a guaranteed two putt. Many are happy to leave this hole with a bogey five, which is par for the Ladies.
