Southern Oaks — Hole #11: Par 4

By • Category: Southern Oaks

The best play off the tee is to aim out left, giving you a clean look into the green with a 5-wood or 3-wood.  Here’s a 3-wood knocked down perfectly by the tree guarding the green, and here’s another one that lands cleanly and finds the hole.  If you do stay to the right, a 5-wood can still work but is much riskier — here’s a very aggressive 5-wood over all of them!  There’s also a left tee box (only available in casual play) that can make this hole driveable with a favorable wind.

Or, you know, disregard the drive, curve it around the corner at light speed, bank it off the tree and ram it home.

I haven’t seen an example, but some pros are driving this hole under optimal conditions.  It appears that a huge A1 off the tee can curl all the way over the water, around the trees, and onto the green!
