HOLE 5/14. OLD HICKORY
Par 3/4; Yardage: 217/218
Men’s Handicap:16/15; Women’s Handicap: 12/11
The name, of course, derives from the stately and huge hickory tree that fronts the right of the green and presents serious difficulties to the tee shot or to the approach shot from the right. Even a well-struck tee shot to the middle of the fairway may find itself behind the hickory because of the decided left-to-right pitch of the fairway. Straying too far to the left, however, may find some conifers by the tennis courts. Many women find this par 4 hole a favorite, but it is a difficult par 3 for most men.
