Hole 2

Hole 2

Par 4 / Brown Tees: 366 / Blue Tees: 342 / Green Tees: 318 / Red Tees: 284

After playing a par five, this hole is a short par four. Where the first hole went left to right, this one is almost dead straight; if it has any movement to it at all, it’s a bit right to left off the tee, but you’re better off hanging on the right side of the fairway.

There are a couple of small bunkers if you get too far right; however, it’s still more open on the right than it is on the left. The backdrop to this golf hole is truly superb, and the St. Augustine grass makes it look like it’s going right to left off the tee. If you get a good drive, the green is wide open. We’ve done everything humanly possible to keep openings in front of all of the greens. This one rolls around a little bit here and there, opening left to right, so if you have a little fade, you ought to be okay. But keep your approach toward the left side of the green; it kicks in that way. And the bunker on the right side—stay out of it. You can get a bad lie in there, costing you a few extra shots, but if you hang left, you’ll be okay. From the green, you can see all the way down the sixth hole, giving you yet another glimpse of the unique character of this course.
