Hole 5

hole5mapFrom the left, it plays a little longer.  A fairly wide and generous driving area.  With a good drive and a 7 or 8 iron in, it is a potential birdie hole.  The green allows the golfer to get up and down if missed.

Back Tee 441 yards
Middle Tee 376 yards
Front Tee 332 yards

Hole 13

hole13mapLongest hole on the course.  A lot of hitting area to the right.  Even though bunkers set up to left, don't get too far right because it leaves a longer second shot with a big oak tree blocking the way.  Large undulating green.

Par 5

Hole 15

hole15mapIt all depends on the tee shot.  For most people, a 3-wood or maybe a 2-iron or 3-iron to carry over second wetlands for an easy approach shot to the green.

Par 4
Handicap 15

Back Tee 336 yards
Middle Tee 303 yards
Front Tee 243 yards

Hole 16

hole16mapPlayers must make a choice of carrying the wetlands and having a shot at making it to the green in two or laying up and using a second shot to set up an easy pitch.

Back Tee 510 yards
Middle Tee 455 yards
Front Tee 355 yards

Hole 17

hole17mapA short iron or wedge to the green.  Bunkers short of the green cause problems.  Bunkers in back of the green cause even bigger problems, because blasting out brings the river back into play.

Middle Tee 124 yards
Front Tee 99 yards

Hole 18

hole18mapHit drive to left of fairway to avoid limbs of oak tree that over-hang near the green.  Need a big second shot.
