Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #5: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

This shot is easiest from the left-center box — normally a high tee right at the green, even though a high tee wouldn’t always be needed.  Here’s a high-teed 5-wood ace from there. The same shot works from the right-center box where a high tee is most often needed.  Or you can work a shot around […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #7: Par 3

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

This hole plays uphill, so you’ll usually need to play a little extra distance to stay pin-high.  But above all else here, keep your ball on the same tier as the pin!  It can be tempting to be aggressive, but you’ll likely cost yourself a stroke if you have to putt up or down a […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #13: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Three different fairway approaches to the hole create variety on this short par 4, which is all about distance control.  You need to clear the hill in front while trying not to fall off the slope on the back. Here’s an ace coming down the right fairway, where the angled green makes the shot slightly […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #18: Par 5

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

The best setups allow you to blast a straight high-teed driver over the cacti to the right edge of the second fairway.  If the wind is more challenging, you can rotate left and play a big A1 drive through the gap into that second fairway instead.  Here’s a nice backspin one-hop hole-out with the 7-wood. […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #8: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 26th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

You should always at least be attempting to drive this green, because there’s no danger around it.  Here’s a high-teed 3-wood with a small cut from the front box.  This 5-wood played a much bigger cut and found the hole. The front box may also provide an option to shoot through a gap in the […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #17: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 6th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

With a high teed driver, a good wind and a little luck, you can play a huge C3 shot and drive this green!  Here’s an example of how that worked out.  Here’s another one that found the green.  You’ll have to dodge a few obstacles, but the right setup gives you a chance! From the […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #16: Par 4

By • Updated: Mar 1st, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Most of the time it’s best to lay up at the end of the first fairway — here’s a nice 3-wood hole-out from there. It’s sometimes fine to shoot for the second fairway if you’re comfortable as well.  Here’s a hole-out from well out into that fairway.  Even if you miss, you may still have […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #12: Par 5

By • Updated: Jan 18th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

From the tee boxes closest to the green and a hard wind blowing at the green, this hole can be drivable!  From the front box, you can high-tee a driver and blast a shot straight at it.  From the next box, there is also the potential of aiming straight at it, although there’s risk of […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #10: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 13th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Your shot here depends on the pin location and the wind.  You’ll usually curve over or in with the direction of the wind.  The best setups allow you to use a medium-teed 9-wood so that you can use backspin to hold the green.  Another good setup allows you to high-tee a 9-wood into a headwind […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #15: Par 3

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Many different tee boxes here give you different slopes to deal with, but all are challenging.  With a wind blowing to the right, you’ll have to cut a shot into the wind and slope to hold the green.  Favor over-cutting it here — the hill can still project your ball back onto the green, but […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Lots of little fairway patches to choose from off the tee — pick one you are comfortable with, or if you are confident, pick the one that gives you the best approach shot given the wind and pin.  The fairway to the right is the safest, and here’s a 4-wood hole-out from the left edge […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #11: Par 3

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

This hole is tricky because it combines an elevated green with a likely gap in your club distances.  Many times you’ll want to change tee height to get the distance you want.  Be careful with the low-teed 9-iron, because elevation will be lower AND backspin is stronger! Here’s an ace into a tough pin from the […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #9: Par 5

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

As long as you can pull back and hammer a solid drive, you should always be using a high tee to cut the corner of the fairway over the left side of the hill.  There are several gaps in the cacti, and it’s rare to actually catch one.  Even if you do, it’s also rare […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #6: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

The only danger here would be an unforced error by placing your drive between fairways.  Don’t do it — just lay up towards the end of the first fairway.  Here’s a 5-wood hole-out from there. There are some setups where you can clearly drive the second fairway, so that’s fine too — here’s a hole-out […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #4: Par 5

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

If you can use a high tee and blast your drive out to the second fairway, it’s certainly best — here’s a wide-open 7-wood hole-out from there.  Even from the back box, a high-teed drive can many times carry over.  Staying to the left is a plus too, since a cactus guards the right side […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #3: Par 3

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Many different tee boxes here, but you’ll just be plopping your tee shot onto the green for a birdie putt.  Normally no danger in being a bit long, as you can bounce back off the hill.  So just worry about carrying the green, and don’t get crazy with backspin. Here’s an ace from one of […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #2: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Again, not much to do here but get it out to the bend in the fairway for your approach.  Don’t hang it out right or a little cactus might spoil your round early!  Here’s an example hole-out. This hole can be drivable from the front boxes, some of which may only be available in casual […]



Jackrabbit Junction — Hole #1: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Never drivable, and with a narrow fairway, all you can do is put it out there and bring it in for birdie.  Here’s an example hole-out. VIDEO DEMO

Jackrabbit Junction — Golden Tee 2013

By • Updated: Oct 30th, 2012 • Category: Jackrabbit Junction

Here is a description of this new course for Golden Tee 2013: “Situated directly under the sweltering sun, Jackrabbit Junction is an 18-hole trek well off the beaten path. Unlike most desert courses, this Gila Bend, Arizona creation is not jam-packed with sand, but instead spreads across the dry, sun-drenched earth that stopped growing grass […]
