Classic Club #18 was selected as one of the three Most Beautifully Brutal Par 5 Golf Holes in the Southwest United States. #18 is among 16 par 5 regional finalists in the John Deere Credit competition for the Most Beautifully Brutal Golf Holes™ in North America.
The Classic Club hole has served as the finishing hole for the Bob Hope Desert Classic. Its nine bunkers cover more than two-thirds of an acre. The hole also is guarded by a lake that runs along the entire right side to a fast green that slopes toward the water.
