Check out our architect George Sargent as he describes in detail the layout of our premier golf course.
Your last chance for glory is a long uphill three shot par 5. A well hit drive in the fairway will get you in a nice position to layup in front of the brook that bisects the fairway, around 100 yards out. The closer you get to the end of the fairway, the easier your approach shot to an uphill multi-tiered green. Getting your approach shot onto the correct tier is essential, otherwise you face a difficult two putt. This hole could be a round killer if any shot is misplayed.
The back nine begins with the demanding downhill par 4 tenth hole. Straightaway and downhill from the tee, the landing area is flanked by bunkers on the left and right side of the fairway. Your approach shot to an elevated green with a deep bunker guarding the right side of the green calls for a the golfer to commit to the shot. Although not overdone in undulations, the green provides plenty of thought and respect when trying to hole out for birdie.
The first par 3 on the back side present quite a challenge with the green almost entirely surrounded by water. A large hump back in the center of the green makes two putting difficult should your tee shot find the wrong side of the green. When this hole is playing into the wind, a par is a very good score.
This classic Cape par 4 dogleg right temps you to bite off as much yardage as your dare, thought the prudent play is a long iron or fairway wood to the left of the pond guarding the bend. The more aggressive the tee shot, the easier the approach shot to the long green, protected by a bunker right and hazard left. Wind off World's End Pond makes proper club selection key.
