75.3/132 72.0/128 69.6/124 70.5/122

Hole #1

The First is a beautiful, down hill, par four that dog legs slightly to the right. From the Blue markers, 250 yards to the center of the fairway is perfect, leaving a 150 yard shot that plays slightly shorter because of the elevation change. The contoured green offers a variety of putting challenges.

Hole #2

The second is a neat up hill par five that entices the golfer to hug the left side of the fairway. Don’t fall for it. Pick a line just left of the fairway bunker and give yourself an open approach to this well guarded, relatively flat green.

Hole #3

The third is an elevation change par three down hill to a green bunkered on all sides. Club selection and deciphering the wind direction is the key to success on this panoramic hole.

Hole #4

The fourth is arguably the toughest hole on the course for the average player. The tee shot must evade a pond on the right as well as the trees guarding the left side. From the blue tees, a drive of 230 yards will leave a down hill second that must carry a pond fronting a large green. Dry is beautiful on this hole.

Hole #5

The fifth is a good relief following the fourth. A drive of 215 on this dog leg right will leave 150 to this relatively open well contoured green. Putting is the key to success on the fifth.

Hole #6

The sixth is a wickedly bunkered, dogleg right requiring a 230 yard drive to the 150 marker. Discipline is required on the second when the pin is anywhere left of center as the front bunker is voracious. The two tiered green requires a deft touch.

Hole #7

The seventh is a straight away par five requiring three accurate shots. At just over 500 yards two shots to get between the 150 and 100 yard marker should be the goal. If the approach is from the left side of the fairway, a huge, deep bunker must be carried, so the play is to shade the second shot to the right while avoiding the fairway bunker. The green slopes gently from back to front and is receptive to approaches.

Hole #8

The eighth is an up hill par three of 180 yards to a two tiered green (left to right) guarded by a huge bunker complex on the right. When the pin is tucked, consider relying on a long two putt from the bottom tier.

Hole #9

The ninth is a shortish, left curling, up hill par four with an elevated green. A 230 yard drive with a slight draw will leave 150 yards to this exacting, two level green. Club selection as well as execution is the key to success here.

Hole #10

A majestic view from this elevated tee reveals a great, elevation change par four. A drive of 250 yards from the blue tee will leave another down hill shot of 170 yards to a relatively flat green. An accurate drive is the key to the tenth.

Hole #11

The eleventh is a straight away par four that plays slightly longer than the yardage as the second shot is deceptively up hill. What you see is what you get on this challenging hole, but be careful of short siding yourself on the approach as the green is not receptive to pitches, particularly from the left.

Hole #12

The twelfth is a straight forward par three that boasts one of the course’s largest greens, divided by a diabolically placed bunker in the front center. It is generally better to err long here in club selection.

Hole #13

The thirteenth hole is one of the best short four pars. From the blue tee a drive of 225 to the right center of the fairway leaves a scary approach around the corner, across a grassed chasm to a heavily contoured green. This hole is a treat to play from tee to cup.

Hole #14

The fourteenth is a medium sized dog leg right, requiring a 225 yard tee shot from the blue tees to reveal a slightly up hill 170 yard second to a heavily guarded, narrow, sloping green.

Hole #15

The fifteenth is a par five of 530 yards offering a variety of plays. The tee shot of 230 yards from the blue tee offers a lay up of about 140 yards to the 150 yard marker to approach through a break in the trees across the left rough to a deep, narrow target. A 200 yard shot down the fairway to the right of the trees yields a pitch of 100 yards to a wide, shallow green that is receptive from this angle.

Hole #16

The sixteenth is a long, gentle dog leg to the right. From the blue tee, a drive to the center of 230 yards will leave 175 to a large contoured green.

Hole #17

The seventeenth hole is the course’s premier par three hole. From the blue tee it requires a deadly accurate 180 yard shot onto a narrow, relatively deep target. Missing either right or left leaves a real challenge from bunkers on either side, and if the ball doesn’t come to rest in the bunker, it only gets worse. A good play on this hole is short of the green, particularly with the pin located on the front.

Hole #18

The eighteenth is a moderate length par five complicated by being up hill throughout. It is best not to be drawn into cutting the dogleg on the left as two good shots down the middle right will leave a pitch to this two tier (front left to back right) green. Beware of the bunker guarding the right side of the green as it is a few yards longer carry than it appears.

74.2/130 71.2/126 69.4/120 70.1/117

 

Hole #1

The first is a great, medium length par three with four separate teeing areas varying in range from 200 to 120 yards. The green is guarded on the right by a deep bunker, but it is the severely tiered green that makes a par on the first a well-deserved treat. Ample chipping and pitching areas to the left of the approach allow for recovery on an errant shot; all in all, an enjoyable and challenging, starting hole.

Hole #2

The fun really begins on the second, as the relatively short, severely doglegging par 4 begs the golfer to try for the risk/reward play off of the tee. Again, the hole is well bunkered and requires a precisely positioned tee shot to the undulating green.

Hole #3

The third is guarded on the left by an expansive fairway bunker that makes the tee shot a challenge. Club selection off the tee comes into play on this shortish par four, as the advantage of a shorter shot to the green is weighed against the probability of avoiding trouble from the tee; yet another green with acutely sloping configuration, making par here is more than acceptable.

Hole #4

The fourth hole presents the golfer another challenge. There is the option of laying the tee shot into the 150 yard range or attempting to get closer to the green with a long tee shot that must carry fairway bunkers on the left and contend with a severely sloping fairway that tends to send even the most precisely placed tee shot into the right hand rough. An elevated, well bunkered, two tiered green only adds to this par four’s difficulty.

Hole #5

The fifth on the Bayberry Links course is a three shotter, par five that requires precise placement of both the tee shot and the second, leaving one hundred yards or less to down to an undulating putting surface; finally, a good birdie opportunity!

Hole #6

The sixth is the longest medium length par four anywhere! At 420 yards from the gold tees, it plays at least 460! Fairway bunkers on the left and mounds on the right challenge the uphill tee shot and the huge, sloping green is the most difficult on the course. A bogey here is not unexpected, and often a relief.

Hole #7

The seventh is a fun par four that is often drivable under ideal conditions. It is well bunkered and the green slopes severely from back to front. Its difficulty depends mightily on the pin placement.

Hole #8

The eighth, a long par five at ---- yards, competes with the sixth as the most difficult on the Links. All it requires is your three best and most accurate shots to reach the moderately sloping putting surface. There is much trouble waiting on both the right and the left for any errant shot and there is little option for using less club as the length of the hole requires distance as well.

Hole #9

Requiring a long carry across water the ninth can be a daunting par three finishing hole. Fortunately, the architect left a good deal of bail out room to the right and short of the green for the faint at heart. Another huge green makes approach putts or chips demanding and a finishing par three well deserved.
