Metropolis Country Club #7
438 Yards, Par 4
So much has been written about the sixth hole at Metropolis that the deceptively challenging par 4 that follows it frequently is overlooked. The visual tricks begin on the tee, where you’re facing what appears to be a wide-open fairway, plagued only slightly by a bunker to the right and a heavily wooded hillside that couldn’t possibly come into play — or could it? And that creek on the left isn’t really in play either, is it? Assuming your drive is on the right half of the fairway (anything left will feed into the rough where trees will block the approach) and stays out of that pesky bunker, you’ll have an uphill approach over another bunker that appears to be greenside, but actually has a 35-yard landing area behind it. Just be sure to land your ball on the right side of the green, since everything moves hard left once it starts rolling.
