This hole should be drivable from the front boxes but possibly not from the back boxes.  Here’s a great ace with the 3-wood from the front box.  And here’s a nice driver from the middle box.  Here’s another amazing driver that bounced perfectly off a rock on its way to the hole!  And this one got some bounces that were even more amazing.

Here’s a hole-out from the fairway.

From the front box, a 9-wood can go right over the wall.

From other boxes or with other clubs, you’ll have to lay up out to the right.

From the front box, this shot is the easiest — this 4-wood went right at it and found the cup nicely.  And this one still cleared right over the mound.

From the middle box, you may need to worry about the tree branches and play a slight cut into the green.  Here is a big cut and a great shot. Here’s another one with the driver.  The straight shot may still be there too.  The charging kangaroo didn’t affect this shot — a 3-wood with a nice little hop out of the sand into the hole!  And this driver went right through the gap!

From the back box, you’ll have a tough driver cut shot trying to find the green — here’s a beauty.

Find a way to work your drive out to the end of the left fairway while being extra careful not to clip the tree in your way.  From here, you can shoot through the canyon walls into the green, just like this!  And, check out this incredible deflection hole-out — amazing!

If you get the front tee box, it appears as if you may be able to drive the green with a huge C3 shot and some lucky bounces.

Here’s a hole-out from the fairway.



Kangaroo Trail — Hole #15: Par 5

This hole can be rarely be driven from the front box…you’re trying to catch a ramp by hitting a medium-teed driver with roll straight ahead, especially with an outwind.

Otherwise you’re trying to carry a drive up to the top of the fairway, as far left as you can, so that you can cut a wood for the approach around the trees into the green.  Some looks allow a shot through the trees as well.

Here’s a hole-out after a long drive.



Kangaroo Trail — Hole #16: Par 5

With the introduction of high tees to classic courses and the shorter overall distance from the front tee box, you can rarely carry a high-teed driver into this green!

Two options here off the tee.  First, you can try to cut the tight corner to give yourself enough space for a shot into the green on your approach.  This can be tough, and you may still need a fair amount of curve on the next shot.

Or, you can do some math and punch a short shot straight ahead.  If you leave yourself a firm 5-wood shot, you can go right over the trees on your approach to the green!



Kangaroo Trail — Hole #17: Par 3

This par 3 can be very challenging, especially from the front box if you are left in between clubs, which can happen quite a bit.  Here’s an excellent 9-iron ace.  Here’s another one with the A-wedge.

Here’s an ace from the middle box.

It’s also tough from the back box, but here’s a great ace.

The high-lofted woods can be a huge advantage on this finishing hole — here’s a nice ace with the 7-wood.  And here’s a well-played 5-wood.

A firmly-hit 2-iron can still carry the green as well!

Here’s a phenomenal 4-wood from the back box.
