Hole 7 - Par 3
Black-185, Blue-161, White-158, Burgundy-115, Green-109, Gold-88
With its tees cut throughout the rock, the first half of the par three 7th is a visual masterpiece. Unfortunately, the greens complex fails to live up to the attractively rugged landscape. Like many of the green surrounds found throughout the course, there is very little interest in the land movement, resulting in relatively plain short game opportunities.
The right bunker will be cut much lower into the ground, wrapping slightly more around the front of the green. A small bunker, just off the front left edge, will divide two nicely shaped chipping areas. The front chipping area will be elevated slightly, while the area between the cart path and the green will be depressed. To bring together the final piece of visual identity for this par three, the back drop will become a mix of rock, sand and natural grasses. A new tee fits beautifully on the right side of the cart path at about the 160 yard mark, adding an entirely new angle.
