Black Hills — Hole #10: Par 4

By • Category: Black Hills

Here you have 5 tee boxes but one common goal — leave yourself 240-250 yards into this enormously elevated green!  If you’re using the Big Bertha clubs, as you should be on this course, you have a lot more flexibility.  You won’t have to worry about hitting a longer drive because you’ll still have a 7-wood and/or a 9-wood at your disposal to do the trick from around 200 yards, if needed.  It becomes ever riskier with each degree of loft lost on your approach shot!

If you are short, however, you can usually still climb up the wall with any club having enough distance to get there.  Still, try not to miss short so you don’t have to deal with this type of recovery shot!

As I’ve played this hole more and more, I’ve found that you don’t have to play a ton of extra club because of the elevation…just a bit more.  But, you must err on the side of caution so as not to be short and put a damper in your round!
