  1. Lowest Score Wins has largely helped me make many strategy decisions that may have previously stumped me on the golf course. This one, though, still has me undecided. It is a 352 yard par 4 with a rather large bunker in the center of the fairway. It starts at 217 yards from the tee and ends at about 285 from the tee. At 275 yards from the tee, the fairway is 80 yards wide in total, with the bunker occupying the center 20 yards, leaving 30 yards available on either side of it. To the left is another bunker, but to the right is nothing. It's basically wide open over there. There is also a
  2. I started this in the LSW club but moving out here per @billchao This hole is at a course I am playing on Friday, which I have played multiple times before. Par 5, 515-535 yds depending on which tees I play from, it is 235 yards to the end of the first fairway, then a pretty significant hill that goes down at least 15-20 feet to the second fairway, which starts at 285 yards from the tee box. The rough at this course is not terribly thick. I have been down the side of the hill where the small red circle is before, its not a terrible spot to be, but still have a slight sidehill lie over the
  3. This hole is the fun hole during the Boeing Classic. I just played The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge yesterday in a pro-am and I had no clue what to do on the tee shot. I'll set it up. You get to the tee, and whip out the range finder to get some of the distances shown. You don't know how wide the fairway is and you could only approximate how much added distance you'd get from the drop. It is about a 50-75ft drop I'd guess, and you have a wind from behind of 5-10mph. The fairway to the right of the bunker (when looking from tee box) is partially blocked, so what I measured was 220yds to carry
  4. This weekend played a Mid-Am at Newman Golf Club, in Bs As Argentina. I love the strategy part of the game, and search on google Earth the new course i will play in orther to set a game plan. The 6th hole was a really hard par 4 and it was really hard to decide what to do. Played it 2 times over the tournament scoring a bogey and a double (+3), I would spect to shoot (+1) at least. The Hole it´s a 420 Yards par 4, 6th hole for the course. Here´s a picture with the yardage references from the tee, 100/150/200 marks, and width yardages too. This are my totalDistances/shot cones.
  5. @Parker0065 asked me to do another one of these and specifically this hole. I've come to realize that @boogielicious is way better at writing on pictures so I'll explain this hole. It's a Par 4. There are times when they set up the Men's tees on the first tee box and there are times they set it up on the second tee box. This hole plays as follows: Championship tees: 265 yards Back teebox, men's tees:250 yards From teebox, men's tees: 220 yards The fairway is narrow with only 35 yards between the trees on the right and the trees on the left. You're pre
  6. I'm curious to see how others might play a hole that I can relate to and how distance vs accuracy would play on this one. Black-250, blue-200, white-150, red-100 with the flag in the center of the green. As you can see, the fairway is really wide but the bunker is elevated. For those of you who drive 265yds or longer and can shape the ball pretty well, how would you play this 500 yard par 5? Would any of you try for the green in two? Keep in mind that anything outside the darker green (rough) is unplayable. The putting green is a peninsula with a gully/creek in front/left/right a
  7. This hole is the perfect example, at least to me, of a good risk/reward hole. It gives you the option of hitting over the lake and onto the green directly (or into the surrounding bunkers), or you can shoot for the closer, but narrower, fairway. The green is very reachable for many people on a given day (this is at 5,000 ft elevation), and also quite wide and receptive. However, should you miss the green and bunkers, there is a steep slope all around the green that will feed balls into the water surrounding it. A few important notes: - This is a par 4 - That shaded area o
  8. The first hole at Oak Quarry (where our Socal Outing was held yesterday) is a 274 yard Par 4. It's about 140 yards to reach the fairway over the ravine, and about 210 to reach the first bunker. That part of the fairway is roughly 80 yards wide. The first half of this portion of the fairway is flat (140-180), and the second half starts heading uphill (180-210). Any ball on this portion of the fairway could leave you with an awkward uphill/sidehill lie. From 210 to about 240, the fairway pinches down to about 12 yards wide, and continues sloping uphill. Beyond 240, the fairway and green co
  9. #16 Keystone River Golf Course in Colorado- Extremely downhill par 4 with a slight dog leg to the left I think this picture shows the gold and red tee boxes. The white, blue and black tee boxes are behind and to the photographer's left. Blacks 509 yards Blues 497 yards While 448 Gold 427 Red 395 Fairway has multiple tiers and mostly slopes from right to left. From the whites, the fairway runs out at 250 yards and turns into 2-3" rough. The main problem I have with the hole is picking the right club off the tee as you get a much different bounce depen
