Distance and control are rewarded on the Choctaw golf course with only two par threes. While the distance makes powering through a temptation, hazard placement on some of the longer holes makes laying up a necessity.
A mid-length dogleg left. Left off the tee and the green is totally blocked. Water looms through the fairway, big hitters beware.
A short par 4 with birdie opportunity. Another hole where left off the tee leaves nothing but a pitch out back to the fairway.
A long par 5 that will usually require three shots to get home. Leave the second shot short of the fairway bunkers.
A middle iron gives ample opportunity for birdie. Past the pin is better than being short.
A dogleg left par 4. Stay middle to right off the tee. A big drive gets you past the fairway bunker for a good look at the pin.
This dogleg left par 4 requires you to bend the ball around the corner unless you can take the tee shot high over the tall pines guarding the left side.
This hole is long and tough as it moves right. Water guards the right side from tee to green. This green is huge and much deeper than it looks.
The longest par 3 on the course, this hole gets its strength from its length. Take enough club to carry the front bunkers and par will be easier to achieve.
Another par 5 finishing hole with water guarding the front right side of the green. Plan on three shots to get home as the prevailing wind is almost always in your face.
