Rattlesnake Ridge — Hole #7: Par 5

By • Category: Rattlesnake Ridge

Here’s another always driveable par 5 that will just challenge your shot-making and distance control.  Most often, you’ll set up a bit left of the green and angle it fairly straight right through the gap.  Depending on how hard you hit it, the hills by the green can be in play with the elevation or sometimes not.  The good news here is that the green is flat, so anywhere should give you a great chance at double eagle!  The bad news is that if you get wet off the tee, you’re put back in the rough by the green with almost no chance of taking that same route into the green, so you’ll be going the long way around and putting up a big score.  Lesson learned – don’t be short!  A chip back into the green for eagle is fine.

This high-teed 3-wood was angled perfectly through the gap to find the hole for an ace.

While a high tee is safest, it’s not always necessary…check out this 5-wood that catches a great bounce off the top of the back-right hill directly into the hole!
