Click for Description
The fifth hole is the first of four distinctly different par 3s and plays over the only pond on the course. There is room between the water and the green, so only a poorly struck middle-iron truly brings the pond into play. The green is traversed laterally by a ridge and is surrounded by bunkers left, right, and long. Hole locations immediately above or below this ridge will test the player’s ability to control distance on this slightly downhill par 3. With little frontal water on the golf course, with the exception of a few streams, the pond on No. 5 not only provides a handsome aesthetic, but, at some 5 million gallons, a significant source of water storage.
