The location of Rees Jones' latest golf course is surprising, and not only because of the breathtaking views. "This, I think, is the most diverse landscape of any golf course in the world," states Jones confidently, emphasizing the impressive nature of the course's 17th hole. The 17th hole is an unusual feat, one that "caused Jones and his team to rework Plan A so the 160-yard par-3 on an undiscovered portion of the property could be included in the layout." It is an intimidating feature: the 17th is "a hole with a tee box 250 feet above the sea requiring tee shots to land on a narrow green perched on a rock outcrop with three steep falloffs interrupted briefly by a horseshoe-shaped bunker."
