Hole 7: Par 4
White Tees: 291 yards
Gold Tees: 287 yards
Red Tees: 282 yards
The shortest par 4 on the course guards against low scores with a blind tee shot and a green that is surrounded by trouble. An aiming flag directs golfers off the tee over a small crest that gives way to a green that is lower than the fairway. The road runs along the right side of the hole which is out of bounds, and a tree positioned on the left side of the fairway makes puts stress on accuracy from the tee. Trees border the right side of the green and the river just beyond the putting surface create the most challenging approach shot on the front nine, putting a premium on distance and accuracy. The green is also the firmest on the golf course, causing approach shots to release.
Pro’s Tip: Tee shots up the left hand side of the fairway will give the least obstructed view of the green on the approach. Shots hit short of the green will not release onto the surface, so flying the ball onto the green is necessary, however shots that land in the middle or back of the green will trickle off the back because of the firm landing area.
