Hole by Hole Guide – Blythe/Somers Course
Stonebridge Golf Club has gained a reputation as a well maintained and manicured course that challenges both the experienced golfer and casual player.
Opened in 1996, Stonebridge is a 27 hole parkland championship course run as three loops, incorporating our Somers, Hampton and Blythe courses.
The Blythe/Somers course is the longest of our 3 combinations, measuring at 6206 yards & is a par 71.
Hole 1 – Par 5 – 476 Yards
Pro’s Tip – The second shot plays downhill and gets an extra 20-30 yards out of each club. Be sure to take advantage and keep the ball in the fairway to give yourself the best chance of hitting it close.
Hole 2 – Par 4 – 327 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Right side of the fairway is your target off the tee, this opens up the green and gives you a better view of what’s ahead. Second shot always plays half a club more. testimonial]
Hole 3 – Par 3 – 206 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Left is better than right off the tee here on this long par 3. Any tee shots leaked right will find their way into the trees.
Hole 4 – Par 4 – 322 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Vital to keep the ball short of the hole on the green here. Any balls long of the pin will leave a downhill left to right that no one wants to have!
Hole 5 – Par 4 – 363 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Second shot always plays a bit longer than you think. There’s more room long than what you can see from the fairway so don’t be scared to be aggressive on your club selection.
Hole 6 – Par 3 – 209 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Another long tough par 3 where anywhere on or short left of the green is a good outcome. Be sure to take enough club as the slope in front of the green will stop any ball that hasn’t made the carry leaving an awkward chip.
Hole 7 – Par 4 – 335 Yards
Pro’s Tip – It’s important to get your tee shot in position on this hole. Left half of the fairway gives you a better angle in to this sloping green. Leave you second shot short of the pin for the best chance of making the putt.
Hole 8 – Par 3 – 186 Yards
Pro’s Tip – A tough par 3 that always plays its yardage. You can get a helping hand from the slope just left of the green. Avoid the bunker to the right, unless your last name is Mickleson.
Hole 9 – Par 4 – 389 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Another risk or reward par 4. Unless your tee shot is well within range for you, lay up in front of the lake and pitch on. This green is deceptively quick from back to front so keep your approach short of the hole.
Hole 1 – Par 4 – 343 Yards
Pro’s Tip – A very tough opening hole. Keep it in play of the tee, and add half a club to your second shot.
Hole 2 – Par 4 – 359 Yards
Pro’s Tip – There’s more room left off the tee here than you think. 5-10 yards left of the marker post will leave the average golfer in the best position to hit the green.
Hole 3 – Par 5 – 495 Yards
Pro’s Tip – The second shot is the most important on this hole. Once in position of the tee your second shot will bounce and roll an extra 20-30 yards down the hill towards the green. Don’t be too greedy or you may run into the bunkers short of the green.
Hole 4 – Par 3 – 194 Yards
Pro’s Tip – A tricky par 3 where all the danger is short. Club up to take all the danger out of play.
Hole 5 – Par 4 – 484 Yards
Pro’s Tip – A brutal par 4 for any standard of golfer. Lay up short of the ditch on your second shot for safety and to leave yourself a full shot in.
Hole 6 – Par 5 – 514 Yards
Pro’s Tip – A very scoreable par 5. Right is better than left of the tee. Be sure to keep your approach to the green short of the hole to leave yourself an uphill putt.
Hole 7 – Par 5 – 537 Yards
Pro’s Tip – The green slopes from front to back, balls carrying any sort of speed going into the green will end up out the back with a tricky chip back up the green. Play 5-10 yards short of the pin to allow for the bounce and roll.
Hole 8 – Par 3 – 145 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Don’t let the yardage fool you. A very tricky par 3 where wind direction will effect your ball more than you think. Usually plays half a club longer.
Hole 9 – Par 4 – 322 Yards
Pro’s Tip – A risk or reward for most golfers off the tee. There is room to the right of the lake if you’re not feeling brave enough to take on the long carry!
