Catedrais Beach — Hole 18: Par 4

By • Category: Catedrais Beach

Some setups here can be really tough, because you can face distance challenges as well as finding the right cut.  You’ll be coming in left-to-right usually, so angle is important.

A common mistake I’ve seen early is to come up short, and then compound the issue by using bite or backspin, which pulls your ball into the water.  I like to float a shot into the green with no spin since it will already be veering right anyway…then you can focus on distance and the right curve…a high tee makes this easier to pull off.

From the center of the box, here’s a smooth 4W curved around to finish with the ace!

With the wind blowing left, you can get away with certain deflections as the wind will keep it on the green, or even in the hole!

From the right side of the box, this hole is nasty.  You may consider trying to skip a low-teed driver around the right side with backspin as an option to reach the green.
