Hole #5 - 498 yards, Par 5 - 2nd most difficult hole
This is a dog leg right. Gullys border the left and right side of the fairway until approximately 100 yards from the green when the brook returns into play. A lateral hazard runs the length of the right side almost to the green (at which point it becomes out-of-bounds). On the tee shot you are faced with a hazard on the right, a large oak tree guarding the left side and another gully (not a hazard) approximately 210 yards straight out. Should you hit a very long drive you may have a chance to reach the green in two. However, most individuals find the risk too great for the reward. The smart play is to hit a club from the tee that will travel 180 190 yards. This should leave you with a second shot that is approximately 200 yards from the brook. The brook sits at the bottom of a sloping hill. Therefore your next play should be a shot of approximately 160 yards which will leave you a flat lie at the top of the hill. From the top of the hill you will be able to view the pond which fronts the left portion of the green and makes going for the green in two a dicey proposition.
The 5th Green
You will be left with an approach shot of approximately 140 yards to a green that sits a little below top of the hill. A steep bank with rough is on the left and the green falls off about 4 feet to the right. The green slopes back to front. If at all possible you do not want to be above the pin. The most difficult pin placement is front right.
