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 […]

Black Hills — Hole #5: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 2nd, 2019 • Category: Black Hills

Here is a really, really tough par 4, and it’s only the 5th hole!  Sometimes, this can set up where you can line up towards the pin and carry a wood over the trees to the green.  But, you have to be dead on if you attempt this, because everywhere off the green is trouble.  […]



Misty Springs — Hole #1: Par 4

By • Updated: Jun 26th, 2019 • Category: Misty Springs

Only one tee box, but you can be placed anywhere on it. If you’re on the front of the tee box, you can get there with a power straight shot or an A1 or C3 (watch the trees on the right) driver. Also notice where the pin is — you don’t want to end up […]



Summit Lakes — Hole #9: Par 4

By • Updated: Jul 8th, 2018 • Category: Summit Lakes

This par 4 is drivable a lot of the time. If there’s ice, it’s that much easier. Just go for it and don’t worry about getting wet. Or, if you can’t get there, line up with the wind for a straight-wind approach shot from just about anywhere. Without ice, you may have anywhere from a […]



Sequoia Grove — Hole #16: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Sequoia Grove

Here is an awesome 3-wood ace from the left-center box.  This high-teed 5-wood found the cup from there as well. This 3-wood came around the left side with a great B1 shot and found the hole.  This one came around with more angle for the dunk!  And this low-teed driver skip was a great play […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #5: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

This shot is easiest from the left-center box — normally a high tee right at the green, even though a high tee wouldn’t always be needed.  Here’s a high-teed 5-wood ace from there. The same shot works from the right-center box where a high tee is most often needed.  Or you can work a shot around […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #7: Par 3

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

This hole plays uphill, so you’ll usually need to play a little extra distance to stay pin-high.  But above all else here, keep your ball on the same tier as the pin!  It can be tempting to be aggressive, but you’ll likely cost yourself a stroke if you have to putt up or down a […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #13: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Three different fairway approaches to the hole create variety on this short par 4, which is all about distance control.  You need to clear the hill in front while trying not to fall off the slope on the back. Here’s an ace coming down the right fairway, where the angled green makes the shot slightly […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #18: Par 5

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • 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. […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #3: Par 5

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Coconut Beach

Here you’ll almost always play a driver straight ahead to just behind the back-left fairway trap.  This is the safe play, and the farther left you can stay, the straighter approach you’ll have — this one played the wind nicely.  Here’s a nice 7-wood curved around from well behind the fairway sand.    Even if you […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #6: Par 5

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Coconut Beach

This par 5 is difficult to get close in two because of the narrow fairway and the pesky trees hanging over the green.  However, I’ve found a strategy that works pretty well most of the time. With any type of wind except a strong tailwind, you can lay back in the fairway for a driver […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #9: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • 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 […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #11: Par 5

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • 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 […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #13: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Coconut Beach

A low-teed 4-wood often works well here — it stays under the first obstacle and goes through the second obstacle instead of over it.  This lets you hit it hard but still have correct distance.  Check out an example of that shot here.  Just be careful using backspin and/or hitting it super hard, both of […]



Coconut Beach — Hole #15: Par 5

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Coconut Beach

The only legitimate chance of eagle here is to look to the right towards the green, and locate the shortcut patch.  Depending on the wind, you’ll play a couple different types of shots.  With a headwind, you’ll want a high tee, loft and an accurate line through the middle of the structures to nail the […]
