Winged Foot Golf Club East #6
194 Yards, Par 3
There are some who argue — quite justifiably — that A.W. Tillinghast’s true genius is displayed in his one-shot holes. This gem on the East Course at Winged Foot is an example of the man’s work at its best. The mid-length hole plays uphill to a small green nestled against a colorfully landscaped hillside, the putting surface unseen from the tee box. It’s one of the smallest greens on either the East or the West Course and, while you may not be able to spot the cup from the tee, you have a great view of all four very, very serious bunkers — two left, one right, and a huge one behind. You’ll want to take your time lining up your putt; the green may be small, but it is full of not-so-subtle breaks exaggerated by the slope of the hillside.
