Hole No. 10

Bob and Marilyn Rolfs

Par 5

  • Championship: 495 yds
  • Back: 495 yds
  • Middle: 473 yds
  • Forward: 435 yds

This par 5 gives the player many options.  A tee shot carrying the downward slope of the fairway will allow the green to be reached in two shots.  One can choose to lay-up short of the water hazard on the second shot or carry the hazard to the generous fairway to the right of the green.  A massive false front forces the player to hit enough club to hold the green.

Local Knowledge

A fairway that moves ever so slightly to the right after the crest of the hill, leaves the golfer more room off of the tee, than you originally feel.  A good drive sets up the opportunity to reach this Par 5 in two, though the golfer will have to carry a creek that runs in front of and to the left of this green.  What looks like a daunting approach shot can be softened, by the generous bail out area to the right on the approach shot into this green.
