Bayou Bay — Hole #5: Par 4

By • 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 to curve around the trees. Occasionally, you’ll be able to go through or over the trees as well. Remember that a B1 shot cuts distance, so hit it harder than normal. Even if you dodge all the trees, you still may end up in a bunker – this green is tough to hit! Beginners might just want to lay up at the end of the fairway with a 2-iron or 3-iron.

Here’s a great driver hole-out from the left tee box.  Also note that a high-teed 5W hit firmly will go over the tree from this left box, letting you take aim at the green.
