Hole 9

The President’s

An uphill blind tee shot greets the player at this short par 4, a marker post showing the way. Several new bunkers on the right squeeze this fairway to a mere twenty yards at its narrowest, challenging those long off the tee. A lateral hazard down the right side beyond the bunkers, combined with bunkers on each side of a narrow green make this a testing 2nd shot. The green itself slopes left to right, and subtle undulations make long putts difficult.

Member’S Tip:

From a low handicapper prospective the 9th is a real risk and reward tee shot. Either lay up into the wide part of the fairway with a shot of around 200 yards leaving you around 150 yards or take the big stick and thread it between the oak on the left and the bunkers on the right to leave a short pitch and a great birdie opportunity, however a wayward drive could lead to a frustrating bogey.
