Hole 5

Hole 5

Par 4 / Brown Tees: 281 / Blue Tees: 261 / Green Tees: 261 / Red Tees: 249

This hole, my opinion, is an interesting challenge for all skill levels and is the epitome of a risk-reward golf hole. If you’re brave enough to go for the green from the tee, your shot must not only avoid the water, but you’ve also got to negotiate three fairway bunkers and one greenside bunker. You may miss the water, but par will be hard to obtain.

The short, straight hitter should play to the fairway, wedge to the green, and will most likely leave with more pars than his longer-hitting opponent. The left side of the green rolls off towards the water, but a small shelf at the water’s edge will hold a shot that has gently rolled off the green. This green is relatively flat and should enable the player to make a good putt.
