The Somers/Hampton course is our mid length course, measuring at 6185 yards, par 70.
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 – Theres 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!
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.
