Best Finishing Holes: French Creek Golf Club, Elverson, PA
418 yards, par 4
French Creek’s finishing hole has a “friendly” feel. It’s a great 18th that, on its surface, doesn’t look that difficult, which is where the strategy comes into play, especially if the wind is in your face.
“The slight dogleg left, with a bunker at the corner, has a big enough fairway to rip one off the tee,” says French Creek’s membership sales manager, Jeff Simon. “But anything pushed to the right side of the fairway might leave one with a long iron into a green that is surrounded by water down the left-hand side, as well as behind. The green slopes drastically right to left toward the water, with some brutal pin placements.”
Situated in a natural amphitheater, this hole provides the nearby members and their guests a great vantage point from the clubhouse patio to enjoy lunch, cocktails and the final-hole drama.
