HOLE 7/16. SLEEPY HOLLOW
Par 4; Yardage: 268/274
Men’s Handicap: 10/11; Women’s Handicap: 14/13
This hole of modest length can be driven by some long hitters, but the green is strategically placed behind a grove of very large conifers. Many players find that a good aiming point for this drive is the huge block “M” on the football scoreboard. One is happy to reach the old creek bed from the top of the hill, safely avoiding those conifers. From there a short approach shot is not challenged by the bunkers front left and back right. In addition to the back-to-front and right-to-left tilt, there are some quirky breaks in the back and on the right side of the green. Well-known golf course architect Bill Newcomb redesigned this hole after the creek was placed underground.
