Blue Course, Hole 7
217 yard par 3. A downhill par 3 with a small green bordered by an amphitheatre-like bank on the left and to the rear and a pond on the right. The tee is well above the green and in addition to the pond, the green is guarded by a bunker on the left. The tree line to the left of the hole and in the back of the green only comes into play if you play an exceptionally errant tee shot.
Tips from the Pro
The tee shot appears intimidating â€“ especially from the back tee. The most serious hazard to your tee shot is the pond on the right, however, hitting into the sand leaves a difficult downhill bunker shot to the green with the real possibility of being in the pond on your second shot. Account for the downhill tee shot by playing one less club than you would normally at the distance. Your tee shot will be in the air a long time, so be very careful if you are a fader or if the wind is blowing left-to-right, as these are ideal conditions for a wet landing. If you land your tee shot on the small green, the relatively flat putting surface provides a good birdie opportunity.
