GlenArbor Golf Club #15

521 Yards, Par 5

This double dogleg is a thinking man’s hole, according to GlenArbor Director of Golf Rob Labritz, one of the more cerebral players in the Met PGA. There are choices to be made on almost every shot. The first choice comes on the tee: Do you favor the right side or the left side of the fairway? Too far right puts you behind trees and makes for a difficult second shot, while overcompensating to the left brings the lake into play. Assuming you avoid those problems by landing somewhere in the right half of the fairway, the second shot presents a classic risk-reward decision. Do you go for the green perched on the side of the hill and protected by a deep bunker complex or lay up to your ideal wedge distance and try to finesse a birdie? It will take some doing, since there is never an easy pin position on the wide but shallow green.
