Cape Haven — Hole #16: Par 5

By • Updated: Mar 4th, 2018 • Category: Cape Haven

With a tailwind, blast a long drive down the fairway, where you should have enough to get there in two.  Hit it straight or curve it and try to get past the bridge a ways.  The overhanging bridge can be in play if you hit it too hard, so you’ll want the ball on the […]

Here’s a nice 4-wood with backspin from the far right box.  In contrast, here’s a great 7-wood from there as well. This 5-wood rolled in nicely from the center box. Check out this ferocious 3-wood dunk from the back box! VIDEO DEMO



Cape Haven — Hole #7: Par 5

By • Updated: Aug 17th, 2013 • Category: Cape Haven

You may have to carry 340 or more to reach the green if you play out to the left fairway.  It can be done sometimes, but you also don’t want to get wet trying, and you’ll have to put extra emphasis on your drive to be as far right as possible.  It’s worth consideration sometimes […]



Cape Haven — Hole #13: Par 3

By • Updated: Jul 8th, 2013 • Category: Cape Haven

This par 3 can be really tough, especially with a bad wind and/or if you have the back box.  Sometimes it’s best to work a very small-cut driver against the wind/slope to hold the green.  Here’s an awesome 3-wood dunk from the back box. Here’s a one-hopper from the front-right box.  This 7-wood found the cup […]



Cape Haven — Hole #9: Par 4

By • Updated: May 31st, 2013 • Category: Cape Haven

Here’s a nice 3-wood from the back right box that carried the green and found the cup.  And this driver curved around the left to suck back into the hole! This driver from the back-center box caught a nice little hop towards the cup. Here’s a 5-wood from the middle box that caught some nice […]



Cape Haven — Hole #15: Par 4

By • Updated: Apr 23rd, 2013 • Category: Cape Haven

This hole can be drivable from the front boxes with a high tee and a nice wind.  Here’s an amazing shot from the front-right box that hopped the bunker and almost found the hole!  This one came within an inch of dropping.  With an out-wind, you can also go straight at it with the high […]

Here’s a nice little ace from the left-center box.  Here’s another ace from the left box. This one got a great deflection from the right-center box. And check out this amazing putt that got a hop off the hill and trickled all the way down and in! VIDEO DEMO



Cape Haven — Hole #1: Par 4

By • Updated: Jan 11th, 2013 • Category: Cape Haven

With a favorable wind, this opening hole can certainly be drivable from the front box.  Here’s a high-teed driver right at it that found a front pin!  A big A1 high-teed driver can work too — here I am driving the green on my opening round here.  Of course, you don’t want to find yourself […]

Cape Haven — Hole #12: Par 5

By • Updated: Oct 8th, 2012 • Category: Cape Haven

If you play out left, you need to lay back a ways from the sand mound, otherwise you may not have enough loft to clear it towards the green.  At the same time, you can’t be so far back that a driver won’t even get there in two.  This driver had just enough to clear […]



Cape Haven — Hole #10: Par 4

By • Updated: Oct 8th, 2012 • Category: Cape Haven

Nothing wrong with laying up straight ahead, just leave yourself a bit of clearance from the sand mound on the approach.  Here’s an example hole-out. If you get a good setup and really crave a big drive (or if you get the much closer tee box), you can reach the second part of the fairway […]



Cape Haven — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Updated: Oct 8th, 2012 • Category: Cape Haven

Club down and hit it hard!  You need as much loft as possible into this elevated green guarded by a hill and pot bunkers.  Short is bad, and long is wet, so you need to nail the distance.  If in doubt, aim for the grassy hill in between the bunkers and hope to hop over […]
