Hole 5: Par 3
White Tees: 147 yards
Gold Tees: 140 yards
Red Tees: 134 yards
The first par 3 on the course is hardly imposing in length but challenges the golfer to be precise with a mid or short iron off the tee. The entire right side of the hole is bordered by trees that are unforgiving to most shots pushed right of the green. The left hand side of the green is guarded by a sand trap that collects tee shots that are slightly pulled. Beyond the sand trap the rough slopes sharply to the left towards a lateral hazard that runs behind the green. The putting surface slopes severely back to front making putts from behind the hole extremely difficult.
Pro’s Tip: Leaving an uphill putt is crucial on this hole as shots from behind the hole are not only difficult to stop near the cup, but may roll off the green entirely.
