Hole #4

gold4 

Gold Course, Hole 4

292 yard par 4. This short par 4 has you heading back up the hill you just came down. The elevated tee, situated on the opposite side of the valley from the rest of the hole, is separated from the narrow fairway by the same creek that comes into play on number 3. The fairway itself is carved out of the surrounding forest and ascends, steeply, out of the valley, narrowing near the approach to the green. The green, nestled into the shoulder of the hill, is surrounded by dramatic limestone block walls on three sides. The modest-sized putting surface is among the flattest on the golf course.

Tips from the Pro
The steep valley and mature trees prevent this from being an easy hole. While theoretically drivable for long hitters, keeping the ball in play is more important. Add a club or two to account for the uphill drive, and aim your tee shot for the opening of the approach to the green. Execute correctly and you’ll have a short chip to flat putting surface and great birdie opportunity. Aim poorly and you’re in the deep woods. Getting through holes three and four with the same ball is a job well done.
