Look at #4 for example. Measures 300 or so, but… I don't think the play is to hit your driver.
Par fours where I hit driver from the blue tees:
Another perspective, from the point of view of a 14 handicap Senior with a driver carry of 220, who has played the course many times from both the Blue and White tees...
From the Blue tees (6475 yards), there are four par 4's (#1, 8, 10, 18) that are difficult to reach in two, and one par 4 (#4) that should be a lay-up as the fairway ends at about 220.
From the White tees (6043 yards), there is only one par 4 (#10) that is still difficult to reach, but three or four par 4's (#4, 13, 17, and maybe 16) that should be lay-ups due to multiple hazards near the landing zones.
You also may have 2nd shot lay-up considerations on at least three of the par 5's, regardless of the tee used.
IMHO, the course is a prime candidate for a hybrid Blue/White tee set. Perhaps some of the members are already doing this?
With all the lay-ups, forced carries, blind landing areas, and uphill/downhill/sidehill lies, it is a course that really forces you to think carefully about every shot. But its a gas to play. Just don't expect to tame it the first time around.
