Hole #9 - 398 yards, Par 4 - 1st most difficult hole
This is a dogleg left. From the tee to the green the hole slopes upward with the last 60 yards rising 35 feet. Large trees line both the left and right side of the fairway. A large tree on the left corner makes it very difficult to hit a fade tee shot that will remain in the fairway. Hitting a medium drive should leave you with about 160 yards to the pin. Because of the height of the hill you will need to add 10 yards to any approach shot. Two deep bunkers in front of both sides of the green guard against errant shots to the left and right. The green slopes back to front with a slight depression in the front right. At all costs you want to avoid hitting the ball over the green, as you will be faced with an extremely difficult chip shot. |
This hole rightly is rated the hardest hole on the course. Most individuals will have difficulty reaching the green in regulation. Those that do may be faced with a very demanding two putt. Probably the most difficult pin placement is front right.
