Coconut Beach — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Category: Coconut Beach

Before teeing off, size up the wind and pin position.  If you can thumb a shot straight ahead, short of the water, and still have a straight shot into the green, then that should be your option.  Check out how this approach kicked off the tree to find the hole!

If you have a nice wind and/or need to get out to the second part of the fairway to have a better chance at birdie, then high tee a driver.  Pull back a bit left, but then shoot forward all the way out to 1.  You want to make sure you have plenty of room out to the left to curve back around the structure without crashing into it, and you don’t want to overcut the shot by pulling too far back to A either.  Check out this 9-wood over the trees on the right — another way to come at it!

Finally, during most conditions, you can high-tee a 5-wood right over that tower!  Give this a shot sometime and see how it can save you some difficulty and possibly a stroke on this hole.

Here’s a great recovery from the left rough for a hole-out eagle.  Here’s a hole-out from the right side of the fairway after a long drive.

If the pin is tucked all the way to the right in between the sand, you can also play the hill to the right as a landing area to help trickle back down.
