Rhineland — Hole #5: Par 5

By • Category: Rhineland

It is good to try to blast a big C3 drive up to the hill on the second fairway if you think you can get about halfway up, because it will settle and you’ll have a nice clear approach.  Bite can help it settle and not fall back down much, but roll can help too…this is usually a safe shot in all setups for big hitters.

Otherwise, your layup depends on the clubs in your bag.  If you have a 7-wood, you can play more towards the end of the main fairway.  If a 6-wood, lay back a bit more so you can still clear the hill and have the proper distance for the approach up and around the trees.

With the newer tee boxes, you may be forced to lay up at the end of the first fairway, bringing the shot described above into play.
