Hole 10 – After stopping by the clubhouse for the best hot dog in Charlotte, you find yourself on the beautifully elevated 10th tee. The only defense this hole has is the fairway bunkers on the left, so make sure you favor the right side. You will find yourself with a mid-iron to an elevated green. This green slopes severely from back to front, so proceed with caution from above the hole.
Hole 11 – Here’s your chance. The easiest hole on the course. A wide fairway should be easily found leaving yourself a very short iron to this big, flat green. It’s time to be aggressive!
Hole 12 – The hardest part of this hole is the length. This hole requires both accuracy and length. Do not be afraid to lay up short of the green with your 2nd shot with a club that is comfortable. Take your chances with a good up-and-in.
Hole 13 – The first par 3 on the backside offers up a chance to put a good 3 on the scorecard. This medium length par 3 has a generous green, so like the others, get a good yardage to the center of the green and walk away with a 3. Do not worry about the pin placement, so those bunkers front and right do not lend themselves to a par.
Hole 14 – Take some time to soak in the beauty of our signature hole. This exquisite par 5 wraps around Lake Mitchell finishing on our peninsula green. A drive right of the trees will leave you in perfect position for an easy layup. Take a mid-iron to the end of fairway, and that will leave your with a very short shot over the water. This green is bisected by a few slopes that make is important to find the correct section. With that short iron in your hand, be aggressive. Walking away with a birdie on this beautiful hole will be the highlight of your day.
Hole 15– You head back into the forest for one hole here on the 15th. A tee shot of roughly 200 yards is required to reach the dogleg. Favor the right side of the fairway to avoid being blocked out by the trees. Once you have successfully found the fairway, this hole becomes a birdie hole. You will have a very short 2nd shot to a relatively flat green. This may be the last realistic birdie opportunity on the course, so go for it!
Hole 16 – As stated above, the last 3 holes on each side are not for the faint at heart. This loooooong uphill par 3 will test your hybrids or fairway woods. If you miss the green, do not worry, a simple chip on to the green will give you a chance at an excellent par.
Hole 17 – The widest fairway on the course greets you off the 17th tee. Your 2nd shot plays slightly uphill, so get a good yardage to the center of the green and take an extra club. This green slopes severely from left to right, so putts tend to be a little faster on this green. A 4 is an excellent score on this hole.
Hole 18 – You’ve made it to the home hole. The last hole on the course and possibly the hardest par 5 on the course. A good tee shot favoring the left side will give you the best angle for an easy layup. The hardest part of this hole is the green. This green slopes from front to back, with bunkers surrounding the front and right, and water looming left and long. Make sure you layup to a yardage that you are comfortable with. It is much more important to be accurate with your distance on this hole than your direction. A tough 2-putt awaits, but if navigated correctly, a satisfying par will leave you with one of your best rounds!
