Hole sixteen is a short finesse par three that you'll want to birdie.   It plays just 138' from the combined red / green tee box.  You'll need to avoid trees the entire way, though you'll have a pretty generous left-to-right line to get close.  You may even have a tigh...

An interesting hole where you will be teeing from the edge of the woods, throwing a drive across the meadow and hopefully have your drive dip into a protected little glade for a birdie look.  

From the red tees, you'll have 279' shot, with a distinct left to right line....

After spending lots of times in the woods since the first hole, hole thirteen (hole eight at the moment) is a transition hole that starts with a tunnel shot through the woods and takes huge right turn into the meadow.  

From the red tee, you'll need about 175' of carry...

At the time I'm writing this blog, holes 7 through 12 are cut out and are in various levels of completion.  This hole is currently playing as hole seven in the 12-hole layout.  Soon it will become hole 13 in the final Calico Creek 18 hole layout.

This an interestin...

Hole seven is the final in a sequence of 4 short holes that climb up along then away from Calico Creek.  It is the shortest, at least from the red tee, and has the least elevation change, a rise of five feet or so.   What makes this one tricky is two leaning beech tree...

Open and one of the shortest par threes around.   Automatic birdie, right?  Not so fast.   You'll have to deal with some elevation, make sure you take that in to account. From the red tee, you'll have an uphill toss of 219'.  With the basket tucked into the right side,...

Hole five is the famous "Old Man in the Tree" hole.  It's a very short uphill pitch and should be an easy birdie opportunity... if you can avoid the trees, especially the Old Man.

It's just 175' from the red tee and only a 110' uphill toss from the green tee.  You'll ha...

Hole three is the most difficult test on the layout.  From the red tee, you'll need to carry 283' and navigate a narrow pinch point about 100' from the basket.  A short pine, a maple tree, and a couple of small birch trees jut into the fairway from the right side, read...

More than once I've heard Calico Creek dismissed as "just a pitch and putt...".  That makes me wonder if that person ever got passed the first hole.  Hole two plays a twisty 241 feet from the red tees, with guardian trees coming in to play pretty quickly.  Sure, if you...

I'll admit it, I'm not an objective reviewer when it comes to Calico Creek. I LOVE the place.  For a variety of reasons, I have a personal connection to this course.   

Calico Creek from the green tees gives beginners an exposure to classic a New England woods...
