Player Tips

Low Handicap Player: Should use a fairway wood or long iron and favor the right side of the fairway. It is critical to hold the green with the second shot. The green has a shelf, the right side being the most difficult placement. Being long on the second shot can put the golfer over the fence and out of bounds or leave him a shot against the fence.

Average Handicap Player: Should use a driver or a three wood from the tee. He should favor the right side of the fairway. Here a “pushed” shot may land on the hill and not offer an “appealing” shot to the green. The ditch that runs down the left ‘side of the fairway is equally “unappealing” since this will force the player to either “drop” (and incur a penalty) or to chip out of the lateral hazard. The player should be aware of the “shelf’ on the green and the problem of going long.
