Hole 7

Hole 7

Par 3 / Brown Tees: 216 / Blue Tees: 175 / Green Tees: 175 / Red Tees: 137

There’s a bit of a walk from the sixth green to the seventh tee, but the beautiful cypress hammock on your right makes the walk worthwhile—don’t fail to notice it. This par three goes from 137 to 196 yards and runs a little right to left. The bunkers on the left side have some beef to them, but I love the way this hole sets in there, and it’s got a great backdrop. For playability, number seven requires a good tee shot. I wish I could tell you that on this hole you’ve got a lot of room for error, but you don’t. So, pull out one of your better iron shots. The mulching around the seventh hole, off the tee and around the green, helps you not to lose your ball and requires a different kind of shot, one unfamiliar to most golfers, but you can bounce it out of there one way or another and get it on the green.
