Hole by Hole Guide – Hampton/Blythe 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 Hampton/Blythe course is the shortest of our combinations measuring at 5605 yards, par 67.
Hole 1 – Par 4 – 371 Yards
Pro’s Tip – The 1st is a very simple opening hole with the main danger being 2 deep bunkers short right of the green.
Hole 2 – Par 3 – 182 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Staying short of the pin is vital on this 2 tiered par 3 green.
Hole 3 – Par 4 – 347 Yards
Pro’s Tip – A narrow ditch just short of the green makes for a risk or reward for shorter hitters. If in doubt, lay up!
Hole 4 – Par 3 – 224 Yards
Pro’s Tip – A tough long par 3 where missing left of the tee is better than right. Most golfers will need to rely on a good chip and putt to make par.
Hole 5 – Par 4 – 375 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Club selection on your second shot is vital with the back half of the green sloping towards the water. Again, short is better than long on your approach.
Hole 6 – Par 3 – 164 Yards
Pro’s Tip – This Par 3 usually plays half a club longer than the yardage. Be sure to take enough club or the bunker short of the green is waiting!
Hole 7 – Par 4 – 358 Yards
Pro’s Tip – A tricky tee shot on this hole, be sure to aim slightly left of the marker post to allow for the sloping fairway left to right.
Hole 8 – Par 4 – 376 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Take a club of the tee that will leave you short of the fairway bunker. The most common mistake on this hole is trying to bite off more than you can chew! A tough hole where par/nett par is more than acceptable.
Hole 9 – Par 4 – 395 Yards
Pro’s Tip – Be sure to leave the ball short of the hole on this green. It’s deceptively quick when putting from back to front.
Hole 1 – Par 5 – 476 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 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.
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 your 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.
