||Hole No. 18, the "Par 5" signature hole of the
San Saba River Golf Course, is a sweeping "dog-leg" to the right. This hole promises
never to play the same way twice. The perfect drive is a ball that moves
slightly left to right as it strikes on the left side of the fairway. A drive of
this nature will avoid "two-iron alley" which lies along the out-of-bounds
line on the extreme left side of the hole and the many trees which line the right
side of the fairway. You are now in position to be over the water hazard
and on the green "in two." However, if necessary, the hole does provide a place to hit a
"lay-up" shot so that you can position yourself to hit over "on three." But
whether you hit over "on two" or "on three," be careful to not over-shoot
the green. A wooded area with little or no ground cover lies behind the green.
The green is "golfer-friendly," so many a seasoned player has ended the
"course" with a par, if not birdie.
