Heather Pointe — Hole #1: Par 4

This green can sometimes be driven with a huge A1 and some great bounces — check out this amazing ace!  For a long time that shot was the longest hole-out ever posted to YouTube.  But then in 2016, we saw this 443-yard ace…perhaps the longest ever without using a high tee.  Incredible.

Here’s an example fairway hole-out.

You can rocket a long drive here, potentially finding a ramp in the fairway for huge distance with your A1.  In extremely rare cases you might even catch the right angle to propel up onto the green!  However, you can also find trouble because of the slope in the fairway — it’s best to make sure you are either on the upper or lower tier, and not somewhere in between where the elevation could affect your approach.

Here’s an example hole-out.

Here’s an example hole-out.  Also, you can pound your drive longer and straight ahead to give you a safer angle with less water on the approach — here’s a nice hole-out from there.

Here’s a fantastic hole-out around the lighthouse.  This one came around the right side and rolled on in.

The drive was perfect and allowed for this nice 9-wood over the top straight at it.  And here’s a crazy hole-out for eagle after having to lay up.
