Shoreacres 12th Hole

Seth Raynor is one of the greatest golf architects in the early 20th century. He had a very unique to use Redans in his course design. The 12th hole at Shoreacres, Lake Bluff, IL, has one of Raynor’s best examples. Very short par three that had a 60 foot drop off from the elevated tee box. The hole has no fairway. Just brush and trees surround the green. So you either hit the green or go looking deep thick brush to find the ball that never bounced.
