This hole is rarely drivable, given a great setup.

Here’s a hole-out after a straight-ahead drive.

Having a 9-wood is huge here — you can take it right over the side of the structure to the green, like this nice ace!

You used to need to do some math to lay up for a 5-wood through the hole in the structure on the approach (I can’t tell if this goes over or through, but you get the idea), but if you pack a 7-wood or 9-wood, just leave yourself somewhere between 190 and 230 yards and you can shoot right over it.

Or, you can play the right side of the fairway and cut over the side — this 6-iron did just that and found the cup.

Here is a 2-iron gone wrong, and then gone oh-so right in this amazing hole-out!  This driver also never had a chance to get through, but a couple of amazing bounces also led to the cup!

Here is a fantastic 5-wood ace.  And this 3-wood was almost a screaming dunk!  Check out this amazing 2-hybrid which missed everything through the trees and ended up in the hole!

This 5-wood caught an incredible bank back off the far pillar and found the hole — amazing!

You can almost always play a big A1 drive over/through the sand spiral towards the next fairway, setting you up nicely for eagle.  Here’s a nice hole-out from the rough just past the sand.  And this drive found the grassy center, followed by a hole-out on the approach!

You can try to cut the corner through the trees, but it’s usually not worth it.  Here’s an outstanding recovery after the tee shot found trouble through the trees.

Here’s an example hole-out from the fairway after laying out to the left, and here’s another one-hop hole-out.

This drive is tricky — you need to cut it around left so you have a clean shot at the green.  Here’s an example hole-out.

Here’s an example hole-out.  This 9-wood was well-played with a tough wind.

This hole is sometimes drivable, but it can be tough.

Here’s a hole-out from the fairway.

You can usually cut the corner over the sand to give yourself a closer approach, which is nice if you have the lofted woods.  Otherwise, you may lay up behind the sand in the first fairway for a 5-wood approach — this one was played well into a front pin.

This 3-wood barely got up to the green after a poor drive but got some nice bounces into the cup!

Three potential greens to shoot at here!  Here’s a nice 4-wood ace to the right green.  And this driver actually skipped the water in front to make the green!

Check out this 5-wood to the front green that was short but caught a grassy break! There’s also a backstop that can help too!

Here’s a 5-wood ace to the left green.

Because of the short direct distance, and especially with the introduction of high tees to classic courses, you may be able to take a shot at the green off the tee in some setups!

Otherwise, you’ll want to lay up on top of the pyramid to the left of the fairway to give an approach chance at eagle.

Here is an incredible dunk for double-eagle after missing the lay-up spot!



Indigo Mound — Hole #17: Par 3

Here’s a nice 7-wood hole-out into this elevated green.  Here’s an ace from the short front box.

Lacking lofted clubs?  With a front pin, you can ram it into the hill and maybe get lucky too!  Here’s another one-hopper from the hill to the cup.

Here’s a beautifully-played 3-wood, followed by a nice 5-wood ace.  This 5-wood got two incredibly lucky bounces off the stairs and found the cup!  This 7-wood floated in nicely and spun back in.  And here’s a driver to a back pin.
