Moose Landing — Hole #1: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

The starting hole at Moose Landing is a non-drivable par 4 with a wavy, straight-ahead fairway leading up to a large, flat green. This one’s a gimme. Just land your drive in the fairway, hit the green and sink your birdie putt – done! It’s always important to get off to a good start since […]



Moose Landing — Hole #2: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

There’s no “easy button” for this one! #2 is a tough, drivable par 4 that doglegs sharply to the left. The key here is to cut the corner while avoiding the tall, ball-snagging tree that resides at the apex. With most winds, stay aimed in the fairway and approach from this angle. Only when the […]



Moose Landing — Hole #3: Par 3

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

A simple par 3 over water, Moose’s #3 is as easy as it gets. The only challenge presented here is a question of club/distance to reach the big, slightly elevated green. Two bunkers protect the front while the left side is blanketed by a sloping grass hill. Unless the pin is on the left side […]



Moose Landing — Hole #4: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

#4 is a non-drivable par 4 with a hilly fairway that doglegs left. Bunkers can be found all around the green but the small one on the front-right side is all that you have to worry about. The green is huge and has a friendly down 4° slope. Don’t do anything stupid and you’ll make […]



Moose Landing — Hole #5: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

#5 is a drivable par 4 that plays over water to a medium-sized green. The trouble lies near the front-left side of the putting surface that is heavily guarded by a tall grass hill that a 3 or 5-wood clears easily. A driver can bounce off the top of the hill and land on the […]



Moose Landing — Hole #6: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

#6 is a drastically uphill par 4 with a long, elevated green. A stream runs along the winding fairway and you’ll notice a waterfall/ramp on the right side that could propel a tee shot onto the green. It can, but I warn you that the results are very inconsistent and it may not be worth […]



Moose Landing — Hole #7: Par 3

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

Another easy par 3 like hole #3 that plays straight forward to a down 6° green. A large bunker blankets the front of the green along with two smaller hazards. #7 plays a bit downhill so ease off your tee shot. Backspin is often used if the pin is near the bottom and wind is […]



Moose Landing — Hole #8: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

Hole #8 is one of my favorites! It’s a drivable, dogleg-left par 4 that I consider a classic risk vs. reward. Near the dogleg, there’s a visible gap between the trees. Hitting through the gap is my first option since it lessens the angle to approach the green. It’s not easy, but it works. A […]



Moose Landing — Hole #9: Par 5

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

The last hole before the turn, #9 is a fun and challenging layout leaving you with several options. The first thing I ask myself is, “can I clear the water to the second fairway?” If the answer is “yes”– go for it! From the second fairway you’ll be able to clear the mound to the […]



Moose Landing — Hole #10: Par 5

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

The back nine leads off with an undulating, double-dogleg par 5 that runs downhill, turns sharply left, rises and turns back right towards the green. Most often, a driver can be hit straight over the gully to the top portion of the fairway. Another method to consider is a C-3 type of shot from one […]



Moose Landing — Hole #11: Par 5

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

Another par 5! It’s not often that Jim Z. goes back-to-back! The most common method to attack #11 is to turn right 4 or 5 times and aim for the land near the base of the mountainside. From there, you can play a 5-wood slice shot that maneuvers between the canyon walls to the green. […]



Moose Landing — Hole #12: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

#12 is a long par 4 that looks more like a par 3. It plays slightly downhill to a wide green that is guarded heavily in the front by pot bunkers and water behind. The green slopes severely downhill 7° so backspin is usually needed. You should have no problem hitting this one, just make […]



Moose Landing — Hole #13: Par 3

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

Here’s a very short par 3 that plays roughly at 74 yards. Sounds easy, right? No dice! #13 can jump up and bite if you try for the pin every time. The difficulty of this hole lies in its green and pin placement. While it may be large, the green has a wicked 8° uphill […]



Moose Landing — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

#14 is a non-drivable par 4 that doglegs sharply to the right around a body of water. The tee shot is key to success and luckily you have two options – cut the corner of the dogleg or lay back. To cut the corner, stay lined up straight and hit an A-1 with backspin. The […]



Moose Landing — Hole #16: Par 5

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

Here’s a downhill 600-yard par 5 that is as straight as it gets. The key to success here is controlling the distance of your tee shot. You’ll notice that the fairway is split into two by a river – you can’t drive over the water, so forget it. You’ll also notice that the fairway is […]



Moose Landing — Hole #17: Par 3

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

The final par 3 at Moose Landing plays at approx. 155-yards and has a cool, shapely green with a gnarly down 10° slope. Almost a dozen pot bunkers guard the green’s front while water lies directly behind it. Unfortunately, there’s not much to tell you other than don’t end up in a bunker! You woud […]



Moose Landing — Hole #18: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

#18 at Moose Landing is my favorite finishing hole of the year! It’s a drivable par 4 to an elevated green that is carved into a mountainside. A vertical and shapely rock face guards the entire right side of the green, while three pot bunkers protect the left. Beyond the bunkers to the left, a […]



Moose Landing — Hole #15: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 18th, 2019 • Category: Moose Landing

Here’s one of the toughest holes of the year! #15 is a nasty, drivable par 4 that requires great speed control and touch. The fairway lies straight ahead with trees along its left side and the green is precariously positioned off to the left with a stream protecting it. The keys to #15 are avoiding […]



Laurel Park — Hole #18: Par 5

By • Updated: Sep 17th, 2019 • Category: Laurel Park

The final par 5 can usually set up drivable!  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 […]



Cypress Cove — Hole #10: Par 4

By • Updated: Sep 4th, 2019 • Category: Cypress Cove

This hole is sometimes drivable, especially from the front left box with a good wind. Just hit a C3 into the green. Sometimes with a headwind you’ll need to blast a C3 and catch a lucky bounce but you can still get there.  Here’s a high-teed driver ace! From the next box back, it’s only […]



Bayou Bay — Hole #5: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 23rd, 2019 • Category: Bayou Bay

Reachable in one, but the difficulty depends on your setup with the wind. If the wind is blowing right, it helps a ton – hit a slight B.5 – 1.5 out to the left to dodge the trees on the right. Anything else, and you’ll usually be hitting more of a A-B to 1-2 shot […]
