Black Hills — Hole #12: Par 3

By • Category: Black Hills

This tough par 3 has 3 tee boxes, and all offer a difficult shot into the green since 3 sides of the green are OB down the cliff, with the other side being sand!  So, if you do miss to the “safe” side in the sand, you’ll still have to try to stop a downhill chip from going off the cliff as well!

Here is as good an example as any of needing to play a small cut shot, especially if the wind and the slope are the same direction.  Pray that the wind blows opposite the slope, because then you can play a pretty straight shot and let the wind push the ball up the slope instead.  Birdie is a great score here, because even if you stick the green, you’re going to have a very challenging putt!
