The 18th Hole, Laurel Valley Golf Club, Par 5, 506 Yards, Ligonier, Pennsylvania
This demanding finishing hole at the distinguished Laurel Valley Golf Club acquired its present appearance in the late 1980’s. The green and its bunkering were lowered, creating the amphitheater setting that challenges the players and provides excellent spectator vantage points when significant tournaments are played there.The present configuration of the 18th hole, along with numerous other hole alterations, is the work of member Arnold Palmer and his Palmer Course Design Company, updating the splendid original design of architect Dick Wilson when the course was built in the 1950’s.
