Hole 18 at Riviera Country Club is a 4 par, 475-yard dogleg right that plays shorter from the Pro tees (451 yards) and even shorter from the Men's tees (422 yards). The green area measures 8690 square feet and has 3 bunkers surrounding it. With no water hazards on this hole, golfers will have to manage their tee shots off the tee as well as their approach into the green.

Given its length, most players will need to hit driver off the tee in order to reach the fairway in two shots. The fairway width of 29 yards gives you some room for error but be sure not miss too far left or right because there are trees lining both sides of this hole. A slight draw with your driver should put you in good position for your second shot into this large green which slopes slightly from back to front. Greenside bunkers do come into play so be sure not to go long or else you'll likely find yourself having a difficult time getting up-and-down for par.

The altitude here can affect ball flight conditions throughout all four seasons so plan accordingly when choosing club selection based on temperature and wind velocity/direction; given an average drive distance of 217 yards, a 7 iron should get you close enough for an easy wedge shot onto this wide open green if playing from championship tees while women’s handicap 10 players may only need a pitching wedge depending on weather conditions due to its 331 yard distance requirement.
