Hole 11

The goal off the tee for most players is to drive up the short, but steep bank. This results in a clear view of the green and an approach shot that is no longer than 160 yards. A drive too far right risks a second shot from the Fir trees. The perfect drive is a fade, because a long straight drive can roll through the fairway to the left, leaving a second shot that is hindered by overhanging trees. A creek runs behind the green. This green slopes severely toward the pond; first-timers may not see the entire break when putting across the green. Robert Trent Jones reportedly traveled to Scotland during the remodeling of ECC. After reviewing the natural links of Scotland, he erased the thought to flatten the ledge up to the landing area for the drive.
