Laurel Park — Hole #18By Golden Tee Fan • Category: Drivable Par 5s •
Rotate to the left, tee it low with a driver, and find a way to skip an A1 around the corner to the green. You will usually have to get lucky and cut THROUGH the set of trees guarding the green in order to get the angle you need — talk about risk/reward! Here it is — the super albatross! Here’s another nice one, and here’s a low-teed driver hole-out that skips the water! Here’s another great shot that did go all the way around the trees. Other shots can rip through the trees and hope for a nice hop to the green. And here’s the HOTTEST one of all! Another hot one here! Finally, an amazing high-teed 5-wood with a great hop!
So we know a driver works, but what about other clubs? Here’s some advice to consider: Use Driver any time the wind is blowing at you and right to left. The shot is a flat A (straight back at A, not outside) and then smooth out towards the 1. Use a high-teed 7 wood (if you have it) anytime the wind is blowing 12+ between Noon and 2:30 and the Tee box is up front. Hit a big full A/1 (No spinny). Use a high-teed 5 Wood anytime the wind is blowing at Noon to 3:00 and the tee is towards the back of the box. Hit a big full A/1 (No spinny).
