  • This dogleg right possesses obstacles that can lead to high scores: water hazards, fairway and greenside sand bunkers, OB along the entire right side, plenty of trees right and left, and a blind shot into the largest green on the golf course.
  • The blue tees need about 165 yards to carry the pond.
  • To see your approach shot, play to the top of the hill about 105 yards from the green, but if your approach shot is blind, recall the pin placement you noted on the 6th hole, as you may need an extra club or two to reach a back pin. The backside of that hill funnels down toward the green, yet a slightly rightward shot may end up in the little pond 30 yards short of the green. Farther right of that is a lateral water hazard, while the green is flanked by sand bunkers right and back left.
  • Beware the subtle breaks on this long curving green as they often produce 3 or 4 putts.
  • From the red tee box, the women play this as a par 4 that is much harder than its yardage would suggest.
  • Five is a good score to walk away with from this hole, no matter who you are or which tee box you play from!

Come and Play!
