Standing on the tees situated high on the slope overlooking the grand lake and the clubhouse in the backdrop of the eighteenth green, golfers will want to take a moment to reflect back on their round and enjoy the sheer beauty of the surrounding. For this is the essence of Longview and a golfing experience that delights all of the senses and leaves the golfer longing to return. Not to get to caught up in the moment as there is still some unfinished business to attend to such as taking on the longest par 4 on the course. With the lake that cuts in front of the fairway and extends down the entire length of the hole to the green, the golfer must stay focused to take on this demanding hole. With only one bunker guarding the landing area on the left side this hole encourages a strong tee shot while at the same time keeping aware of the dangers of the lake along the right side. Generally a mid to long iron shot will be needed to carry over the edge of the lake to reach the putting surface that sits just above the beautiful stone wall at the waters edge. The green has plenty of movement and any shot played away from the hazard will collect in the low fairway that sweeps left of and behind the green. A recovery shot from this position with the water just beyond the putting surface will test the nerves if even the best golfers. Whether two putting the green or getting up and down from the fairway collection areas, most players will be satisfied to walk away from this one with a par and head to the clubhouse to reminisce about their experience.
