Best Finishing Holes: Stonewall, Elverson, PA
Old Course, 451 yards, par 4
Don’t get mesmerized by the scenic beauty of Stonewall’s 18th hole on the Old Course. The view from atop the hill, watching the sunset over the clubhouse and its restored stonework, can make you forget the task at hand.
From the back tee, this hole measures 451 yards, with the added peril of a downhill second shot. The fairway narrows at 200 yards and, when the course is playing summer fast, a straight drive is a must. A drive in the fairway leaves you with a medium iron to a hybrid home—off a less-than-level lie. Walking onto the undulating green, you will find that a two-putt is no “gimme.”
“The 18th is everything you look for in a finishing hole: beauty, strategy and a long-lasting impression,” says head golf pro Ryan Lagergren.
