Hole Seven: The Straight and Narrow

June 9, 2017

From tee to basket, the seventh hole is arrow straight... but oh so narrow!  The fairway is another old logging road, and a high canopy of tall oaks and pines create a tunnel.  Deep woods threaten on the left side of the fairway, with the right side only slightly more forgiving.

 

There is a slightly wider landing area about 175' from the basket, but even from there you'll have to negotiate a grove of birches to get a tight approach to the basket.

 

This plays as a tight and level 436' par four from the white tees.  You'll get a nearly 70' break from the reds, with only a tight 357' to negotiate, but don't make the mistake of thinking this will be an easy birdie.  This might be a good hole to leave your distance drivers in the bag.  A couple of well placed midrange discs might give you your best chance for a birdie.

 

Hitting the tight line off the tee is very satisfying... but clipping an early tree will leave you scrambling.  You may have to get pretty creative with your recovery shot.   Is your thumber or tomahawk up to snuff?
