Pine Meadow — Hole #17: Par 3

By • Category: Pine Meadow

For having a flat green, this is often a terribly difficult par 3. The shape of the green is awkward and small with water everywhere, but the kicker is the elevated approach with a hill guarding the front.  That takes some lower-lofted iron approaches out of play and forces you to loft into pins in the front.  Cross-winds are just devastating and make it a really tough birdie.  Here’s a 5-hybrid with a tiny cut to a back-center pin.  With that same look, this 9-wood also finds the hole by cutting into the wind.
