Hawthorne Manor — Hole #4: Par 5

By • Category: Hawthorne Manor


The most common, and usually best, spot to be off the tee is over the water and over the sand trap on the right, landing in the rough just to the right of the middle sand trap.  You can always reach the green easily from here.  After a long drive, here’s a hole-out from there.

If you can’t reach that spot, or if the pin placement and wind don’t make that an attractive approach, another good option is to play a straight drive or a C3 drive way out to the rough on the left.  Again, you can always reach the green easily from here, but you’ll have to carry the flower bed on the way in.

The standard route is to lay up in the first fairway and bring it around or over.  Here’s a 4-wood straight into a front pin.  With an offset look, a 4-wood still goes over the trees straight at the green.  Another option is to curve a 3-wood around right-to-left.
