Gold Course, Hole 7
337 yard par 4. Number seven is a short uphill par 4 bisected along its length by a pronounced ridge. A dense forest borders the right side of the fairway while the left side drops off sharply into an area of long grass. A large copse of mature trees comes into play on the left near the green. The rightmost edge of this copse separates the green from the left portion of the fairway. The green is large with several contours.
Tips from the Pro
The direct route to the green lies along the left side of the fairway. However, a long hitter can easily hit through the fairway into the tall trees that guard the left approach to the green. Even if you play safely to the left, you will have a difficult approach shot over tall trees to an elevated green. For best results, play your drive to the broad right side of the fairway. This tee shot placement will leave you with a short iron to the green. The green is set back from the crest of the hill making it a little farther from the landing area than it looks, so be sure to play enough club. Approach shots landed far from the pin can leave you with a putt that breaks several times.
