This is Hole #5
This 356 yard uphill par 4 dog-leg left hole is a sneaky short hole. From the tee, trouble looms both to the right amongst the trees, and left with a collection of bunkers. A carefully played tee shot over the bunkers and to the right side of the fairway will leave a tricky uphill approach to this bunkered and sloping green.
Jamie opted for a 3-Wood for his drive then used a Sand Wedge for a 114-yard approach. The slope on the green is deceptively hard to read.
This is Hole 3.
This 120 yard par three is the second easiest hole on the course. The green however is well mounded and bunkered demanding an accurate short iron tee shot.
A safe tee shot to the middle of the green usually guarantees par.
A pitching wedge may be your preferred club choice here however.
Note: Jamie is now 2 under par on the course tour through 3 holes!

This is Hole #2:
This 493 yard slight dog-leg left hole is the shortest par 5 on the golf course. Trees line both sides of the fairway requiring a precise tee shot. Short hitters must favour the right side of the fairway on their tee shot. The second shot is a mid to short iron which sets up a third to this very deep green. For the long hitters, you must successfully draw your tee shot around the corner if you are to hit your second shot to the green.
Jamie elected to use a 3 wood off the tee and then a 4-iron for his second shot (225 yds) to get onto the green (Red flag indicating the pin was at the front of the green). A chance at an Eagle if you can get on the green safely in two shots!
