Coconut Beach — Hole #2: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 22nd, 2013 • Category: Coconut Beach

From one of the front boxes, this hole can potentially be drivable!  From the closest box, you’ll have the distance, but the trees will pose an issue.  Your best bet is from the second-closest box — with a nice wind at the green, you can play anywhere from a fairly straight shot to a C3-type […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #10: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 17th, 2013 • Category: Coconut Beach

The play is almost always straight down the fairway to the right — you should have plenty of club to get there in two.  A driver can work nice to minimize the effect of wind and slope — this one was played nicely and found the hole. Use either backspin, bite, or nothing with the […]



Cape Haven — Hole #7: Par 5

By • Updated: Aug 17th, 2013 • Category: Cape Haven

You may have to carry 340 or more to reach the green if you play out to the left fairway.  It can be done sometimes, but you also don’t want to get wet trying, and you’ll have to put extra emphasis on your drive to be as far right as possible.  It’s worth consideration sometimes […]



Sequoia Grove — Hole #18: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 15th, 2013 • Category: Sequoia Grove

Here is a fantastic low-teed driver cut through the gap and into the hole.  This one came in pretty hot after a big hop and an out-wind but still found the hole! If the wind is blowing hard left, you may need to rotate another click left and play more of an A2-type shot instead […]



Bear Lodge — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 7th, 2013 • Category: Bear Lodge

Some guys have gotten close to driving the green here, at least getting close enough for a short chip shot.  Check out this insane long drive.  Don’t expect these results, but check out how this high-teed driver skipped the water with a tailwind! It’s never a bad option to lay up behind the sand straight […]



Cape Haven — Hole #13: Par 3

By • Updated: Jul 8th, 2013 • Category: Cape Haven

This par 3 can be really tough, especially with a bad wind and/or if you have the back box.  Sometimes it’s best to work a very small-cut driver against the wind/slope to hold the green.  Here’s an awesome 3-wood dunk from the back box. Here’s a one-hopper from the front-right box.  This 7-wood found the cup […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #17: Par 4

By • Updated: Jul 8th, 2013 • Category: Coconut Beach

This is one of the toughest eagles in 2013, followed immediately by perhaps THE toughest eagle in the game.  In most cases, it doesn’t hurt to go for it, because the sand and the rough below the hole will catch most errant shots.  Let’s start there, because this is very entertaining. From the front box, […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #11: Par 5

By • Updated: Jul 5th, 2013 • Category: Coconut Beach

This year’s Design-A-Hole has a lot going on.  There are a lot of options, so you’ll need to size them up depending on your tee box.  From the front boxes, this hole can be drivable, and you’ll always want to go for it.  Even with a wind blowing hard right, you can still curve a […]



Sequoia Grove — Hole #13: Par 4

By • Updated: Jul 5th, 2013 • Category: Sequoia Grove

Most of the time, you’ll be trying to hit a low-lofted shot through the hole in the bottom of the tree.  However, it’s very easy to miss high and ram right into it.  The trick is to try to land your ball well short of the green, because you’ll get a lot of bounces downhill […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #18: Par 5

By • Updated: Jul 5th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

The best setups allow you to blast a straight high-teed driver over the cacti to the right edge of the second fairway.  If the wind is more challenging, you can rotate left and play a big A1 drive through the gap into that second fairway instead.  Here’s a nice backspin one-hop hole-out with the 7-wood. […]



Bear Lodge — Hole #4: Par 4

By • Updated: Jun 4th, 2013 • Category: Bear Lodge

Here’s a nice 3-wood ace from the left-center box followed by one floated in from the right-center box. The hole gets long from the back boxes.  You can work a driver through the gap in the middle like this nice shot from the back right box, and this driver actually dunked from the back left box! […]



Bear Lodge — Hole #16: Par 5

By • Updated: Jun 4th, 2013 • Category: Bear Lodge

Here’s a tough par 5 that can be really difficult to reach in two.  It often takes two great shots.  Here are your options off the tee: 1) If you have the distance, blast it straight ahead through the fairway into the rough by any means possible.  This gets you a pretty straight look into […]



Cape Haven — Hole #9: Par 4

By • Updated: May 31st, 2013 • Category: Cape Haven

Here’s a nice 3-wood from the back right box that carried the green and found the cup.  And this driver curved around the left to suck back into the hole! This driver from the back-center box caught a nice little hop towards the cup. Here’s a 5-wood from the middle box that caught some nice […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #9: Par 4

By • Updated: May 21st, 2013 • Category: Coconut Beach

There are many ways to play this shot, and often still more than one option given a particular tee box and wind.  The left-center box gives you the best look, because you can take aim straight at the green and play just a small curve around the left of the trees.  You can also rotate […]



Sequoia Grove — Hole #4: Par 4

By • Updated: May 16th, 2013 • Category: Sequoia Grove

Here’s a great 3-wood from the front box cut through the left gap in the trees.  That box also sets up well for a straight shot through the gap. The second box may well the the trickiest.  The gap straight at the green closes up significantly, although it’s still there if you want it — […]



Cape Haven — Hole #16: Par 5

By • Updated: May 11th, 2013 • Category: Cape Haven

With a tailwind, blast a long drive down the fairway, where you should have enough to get there in two.  Hit it straight or curve it and try to get past the bridge a ways.  The overhanging bridge can be in play if you hit it too hard, so you’ll want the ball on the […]



Bear Lodge — Hole #1: Par 4

By • Updated: May 5th, 2013 • Category: Bear Lodge

From the front boxes, this hole can be drivable!  Check out this medium-teed driver ace with roll from the front-right box. This one found the green from the front-center box with a high tee.  And Mouth did find the cup with this huge effort! VIDEO DEMO



Bear Lodge — Hole #18: Par 4

By • Updated: May 4th, 2013 • Category: Bear Lodge

From the front-left box, a wood can easily clear the trees right at the green.  This high-teed 4-wood found the cup.  You don’t even need a tee if the distance works out for you and you need to retain backspin — this medium-teed driver went at it just fine.  If you are so inclined, here’s […]
