Positioning of the green to
save two trees worked well. The tree in the front,
right part of the approach area will be a factor for
those mighty hitters who may attempt the long carry
over the water toward the green.
It is best to keep the ball
below the hole with the approach shot because of the
sloping green from back to front. There is one
particularly challenging pin area in the front, left
portion of the green. A sharp slope in the fairway
approach combined with a narrow landing spot on the
green requires some creativity and skill to play
into this pin area .
The fairway bunker in the
approach area was removed. It did not fit within
the existing land forms and seemed out of place. The
hole sets up well as a comfortable beginning with
the real possibility of an easy birdie. However,
there are enough elements present that could cause a
rough start to the round.
