Desert Valley — Hole #5: Par 4

By • Category: Desert Valley


A drivable par 4 whose complexity depends on the tee box — you’ll either get to hit over the trees or have to curve slightly around them to the green.

From the left box with a left pin, this 5-wood took straight aim and got a nice little kick off the sand hill into the hole.  This 3-wood didn’t quite have enough curve around the right side but caught a great bounce off the sandy hill to spin back in the hole!  And this 3-wood played a more extreme right-to-left cut into a left pin.

This high-teed 5-wood played a little left-to-right cut into a right pin.  And this low-teed driver avoided the trees around the left to find a back pin!

From the right box, this driver cut into the green and deflected nicely into the cup.  This driver took a more direct route under those trees and backspun into a center pin.
