Another strong par 5, the 14th at Palm Beach requires a water carry off the tee, and some careful forward planning as to the line taken to the hole.  With the green visible from the tees, this can entice the golfer to play down the right hand side and tempt the longer hitter to go for the green in two.  The safer option is to play down the middle left of the fairway, leaving a lay up of the water for the second shot.  This is however where the hole gets difficult.  In the second landing of the hole, the fairway ‘splits’ – the high side to the left of the fairway bunker and the low side to the right.  The higher left side is more open and generous but leaves a longer third shot into the green; the lower left side much tighter but provides a much simpler chip in to the green. 

棕榈滩14号洞是标准五杆洞,发球台前有水障碍区,因此发球前需要仔细思考,制定策略。发球台前的果岭清晰可见,引诱球手从右侧击打并用两杆击至果岭。安全的选择是从球道的中部左侧发球,第二杆空开水域部分。这也是此球洞较为难攻克的原因。在第二落球点,球道高出的一边位于沙坑左侧,低的一边位于右侧形成了球道“分裂”。左边高出的区域更开阔可留下更长距离第三击上果岭,低下去的右侧则提供了较为简单的“切杆上果岭”的距离。
