This Michael Hurdzan/Dana Fry design is visually intimidating and, in spots, every bit as difficult as it looks. Although the large fairway waste areas are stunning, they prove problematical for those trying to get out of them.

Sand Barrens ends with the most reachable of the course's par 5s at 511 yards. Disaster lurks near the green. On the green's right lies a large waste area, while on the left is a deep pot bunker named "The Coffin" from which it is difficult to exhume the ball.
