Hole #10: GolfScout's Take

Hopefully you quenched your thirst and refueled with a snack at the turn. You'll need the energy, and your wits about you for the par 4 10th hole. It's the 4th longest par 4 on the course, but definitely the most narrow fairway, buttressed by trees on both sides. There's no room for error here. OB is to the right, lined by houses. You can find your ball if you hit it in the right tree line, but your second shot will be stymied. If you miss, miss left.

Complicating matters is the fact that portions of the fairway grass have problems on 10. It's not the smoothest, even if you do find it off the tee. Hopefully by the time you read this, it's a problem of the past.

Approach shots have to contend with a bunker to the right of the green, along with trees behind it, which visually separate this green from the 11th tee. This hole is a roller coaster, a test of wills.

The green itself runs uphill and has two sections -- a lower and upper tier.
