Hole 5

490 Yards
Par 4

This is the first of two long par fours on the front nine, with trees guarding the left side of the fairway and bunkers lining the entire right side. There is a ridge at 280 yards that must be carried to have your ball run downhill towards to the creek, which crosses diagonally and is approximately 350 yards from the tee. The second shot will be one of the most difficult on the golf course because of a downhill lie and a green protected by a new frontal bunker. Players will need to adapt to a green that has many contours and is very fast from back to front. The most difficult hole location is front right, which is protected by a bunker and an overhanging elm tree.
