Best Finishing Holes: Dupont County Club, Wilmington, DE

Championship Course, 445 yards, par 4

Kent Thomas, DuPont’s director of golf, describes its 18th as “a beast”—but he means that in a good way.
“It measures 445 yards from the back tee, and the entire landing area is bisected by a creek that runs across the hole,”
he says. “To make it even more challenging, there is also an 80-foot tree in the center of the hole. There are a few ways to play the hole: play to the right of the tree and have a longer
mid-iron shot in, or the big hitter can try to hit over the tree, requiring a carry of around 270 yards. As the approach shot is slightly uphill, and due to the well-placed greenside bunkers, you cannot see the green from the fairway.”
