Yeah, that was a fun hole. ;) It's a medium length par 5 that goes up to a crest, and then down and to the left, with a pond in front of the green. I hit my first drive fairly well but with draw into a headwind that pushed it even further left and into a bad area. So I hit a provisional. Found the first one, but had an awkward stance due to the hill and a little tree. I took a 9 iron and an abbreviated punch swing and got it out of there and into a somewhat reasonable position ... right side of the fairway, 165 or so out. There were trees in my line to the pin, but the pin was tucked all the way to the right of the green and I wasn't going for it anyways. Aimed well left of the pin and the trees, but managed to hit a big push directly into them and then into the pond beyond. Moved forward a bit on the line with the hole such that I could hit a PW, and topped my next one directly into the bushes in front of me. Tried the exact same shot and this time hit a rocket about 12" off the ground that skipped across the pond, but it hit the bank on the other side and dropped in. Now, I was able to move up to the edge of the pond away from the trees and bushes and hit a wedge onto the green. Hit a horrible lag putt to about 6 feet, but then made a nice stroke on that one and drained it! ;) That was sweet relief too, because I mean, could you imagine if I had to take a 12 on that hole?!?! How embarrassing that would have been!!!
Oh, and I also whiffed once on hole 12. Hit my second shot left into the leaves and up against a stump. I'd pretty much stopped really worrying about anything at this point and just wanted to hurry up and get out of there. I took a really steep swipe at with a lob wedge to try and axe it out of there but caught the stump and it jumped right over the ball. Knocked it out of there on the next one though. :)
But I had a couple highlights ... The last hole was a 645 yard par 5 according to the cart GPS, and after my drive I had 333 left. After my 3 wood I had 72 left. [I shouldn't tell you that after my lob wedge I still had about 30 left, but that was the way the day went. ;)]
(Yes, If you MUST know ... the hole is downhill and was playing downwind) Hopefully most people won't notice this part. Shhhh!
