Hole Nine

The Ninth Hole: Par 5, 545 Yards

Standing atop the lofty hillside tee complex for the Ninth Hole, many golfers feel a mix of emotions–on one hand the serenity afforded by the wide, elevated view, and on the other, the excitement born from the challenge that quite visibly lies ahead. Accuracy is a must from the tee, as the fairway is bordered by a meandering creek on the right side, and a steep hillside on the left. The second shot raises the stakes, requiring a difficult decision to either lay up, or venture over the creek and directly toward the putting surface, which is guarded by a dramatic waterfall to the left. Naturally, with risk comes the promise of reward. In this case, a birdie or potential eagle.
