Woodland Farm — Hole #16: Par 5

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

The easiest shortcut here is to a grassy hill just over the river — if you are on the left tee box, you can line up with the green and you’ll see it straight ahead.  Pull out your 3-wood (you’ll need the loft) and crank it straight ahead on top of this hill!  From here, […]



Woodland Farm — Hole #15: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

On this hole, you’ll usually be laying up in the circle fairway, although sometimes you can clear the river to the next fairway.  If you’re laying up in the circle, be careful, because it slopes down and can leak into the water if you hit it too far! With this elevated green, loft becomes important […]



Woodland Farm — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

This hole has several looks among 3 tee boxes, but you should always check out the small gap in the trees leading towards the pin.  Most of the time, you’ll have a look with anything from a low-iron to a 5-wood to a driver that has the proper trajectory to fit right in that gap!  […]



Woodland Farm — Hole #13: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

This par 4 with an island green is usually driveable but very tough!  There are 4 tee boxes, and sometimes you’re on the back of one and simply can’t get there with your driver.  If this is the case, you at least have a lot of fairway to work with so you can line up […]



Woodland Farm — Hole #11: Par 3

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

On this par 3, you’ll be on any one of 5 different tee boxes, hitting into a well-guarded green.  If conditions are tough, just aim for the middle of the green and deal with your putt, rather than ending up in the water or sand! EXAMPLE HOLE-OUT 1 EXAMPLE HOLE-OUT 2



Woodland Farm — Hole #10: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

Yikes.  Golden Tee sometimes likes to punish you coming out of the clubhouse for the back 9, and this hole certainly fits that bill.  If you choose to hit a long drive, you’re almost certain to have a tree blocking your approach shot into the green. Instead, I sometimes like to lay up short into […]



Woodland Farm — Hole #7: Par 3

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

Pin placement can make this shot difficult sometimes, as can the fact that you don’t know whether the green will have slope of up 7, down 7, or left 7, because of all the different tee boxes! Use the strategies you already know to attack this green based on the slope. Be warned on downhill […]



Woodland Farm — Hole #5: Par 5

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

Here is a manageable eagle opportunity on a par 5.  You have to get long, but more importantly to the right, off the tee, and many times rotating left and hitting an A1 will be the shot for you to get far out to the right side of the fairway.  However, you can also really […]



Woodland Farm — Hole #4: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

Time for some fun!  This hole is great.  It’ll take some practice, but you should always be trying to punch a driver (or a very low-lofted iron) through the covered bridge onto the green!  The tee box is 60-70 yards long, but it’s always in line with the bridge.  You’ll have an offset look through […]



Woodland Farm — Hole #3: Par 3

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

Here’s a tough, long par 3 that can set up over 300 yards!  It’s slightly downhill, and you’ll probably have to fly the sand, landing on the green and sticking it by the pin.  Make sure you leave yourself a clear putt at the flag because of the oddly shaped green! EXAMPLE HOLE-OUT 1 EXAMPLE […]



Woodland Farm — Hole #2: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

There’s no point in trying to clear the lake here — just punch it down the fairway.  Be careful on your approach shot with the sandy moat in front — a low-lofted club may get stuck in there, so make sure you fly the green and stick it! EXAMPLE HOLE-OUT



Woodland Farm — Hole #1: Par 4

By • Updated: Aug 5th, 2014 • Category: Woodland Farm

Nothing fancy on hole 1 — just get out at least to the top of the hill and try to line up the wind with the pin as best you can! EXAMPLE HOLE-OUT
