Bear Lodge — Hole #2: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Bear Lodge

With a good tee box and wind this hole can be drivable!  You may have a shot straight at it with a huge tail wind, but the safer play is to curve a big high-teed driver around the trees.  This long drive found the green. Otherwise, lay up out in the fairway.  Here’s an example […]
