Pine Needles Featured Holes
No. 3 is our signature par 3 hole. A precise tee shot is called for, over a small pond and wetlands area. The putting surface slopes sharply from back to front. A Three-putt is a real possibility for the inattentive player who leaves himself above the hole.
On the par 3, No. 5, you’ve achieved the outward nine’s highest elevation, meaning winds can swirl here, plus the green is domed with a false front. Choose enough club to hit the putting surface.
No. 10 is a par 5 dogleg left with a dramatic bunker hugging the inside of the corner. A well-struck tee shot can clear the bunker and leave a long iron or fairway wood to the green. Think birdie.
Carve a fade through the chute of pine trees on No. 11. This, a par 4, is one of the tighter driving holes on the course. Your approach to the green is uphill. Choose your club accordingly.
The finishing hole, a par 4, rewards a slight draw off the tee. Longer players will get a generous roll and face a downhill approach. But this is a green that is difficult to hold. Precision is called for if you want to finish your round like a champion, just as Donald Ross intended.
