Hole #7, Par 3
Number seven usually plays longer than the yardage on the card and a bit more difficult than its handicap of 15. It’s an open hole, playing slightly uphill, sometimes into the wind and is protected by bunkers on the left front and on the right. There is a closely mowed apron in front sometimes used for a bail-out or for a pitch and run shot. The smart choice is to play an extra club to make the green which is sloped back to front, well contoured, and usually quick. If the flagstick is located down in front and if the wind is blowing, putting can be spicy. The player has a seemingly endless choice of interesting putts. This is a fun hole, but also known for its “Bite”.
