Red Course, Hole 5
435 yard par 5. The fifth hole is a very short par 5. As designed, the fairway plays well to the right of the two prominent humps that lie directly between the tee and the green. The landing area is very wide open space that slopes gradually from left to right. The green is guarded by a pond and two deep bunkers in the front-left. The green is flat and narrow.
Tips from the Pro
Your only hazards off the tee are the sloping fairway and long grass on either side. Keeping the ball on the top of the fairway just to the right of the mounds will offer the best setup. Long hitters can go for the green in two; or play it safe and lay up to the right side of the water, leaving a short pitch to the green. The green is flat and narrow. Number 5 offers the best birdie and eagle opportunity at Lacoma.
