The Landings at Spirit Golf Club Course Tour
An easy starting hole. Long driver may reach the green. But a well placed 2nd shot will master this hole. This is the first green on the course. Small undulations will keep you on your toes.
This is the first par five that is reachable for the long hitter. But, the first of three double greens that will test your wedge game as well as your putter. A lay up shot placed well will serve your game better than reaching in two. Don't be long.
This short par four will test your short game, a long drive puts you inside the 100 yards. The green is two tiered and it will help your score to stay below the hole. This is the second double green.
On this par four the key shot is the approach. With a mid iron in, the 3rd double green with more slope than a black diamond trail at Breckenridge. Stay short, right or on the pin. A missed shot to the left will give you an easy bogey.
The first par three that will teach you a lesson about a links style course. Add one club to your first choice and beware of the big bunker left, and that the back half of the green slopes away from you. This is the least hit green on the course.
This par four can be driven, but the green has one flat spot on it and the pin is never there. Watch the left side bunker. With your pitch shot leave it short on the green and it will release to the upper tier.
This is a good eagle hole. With a long drive you will be 200 yards out. The waste area to the left will attract many a shot. Undulating green that again will test your putting skill.
Great par three with a big green that has interesting pin placements. A tier towards the front will catch many shots and turn an easy par into a bogey.
This is the hardest par four and the #1 handicapped hole on the course. The prevailing winds will determine your fate. Long iron into a two tiered green, that slopes from right to left. Don't be long or right.
Short par four with a three tiered green. Always a firm green. Don't be right. A good birdie opportunity.
This is a great par five, the #2 handicap hole. Reachable in two. Watch the road and out of bounds right. A three tiered green with a mound on the right that may hide a back pin placement, or allow a well place corm off the mound.
A short par four with an undulating green that slopes from, back to front and left to right. An accurate wedge to this green will make the difference. Watch for the dip in the right hand side of the green, as a misplace shot will roll into the rough.
A true par three into the prevailing wind. As if that was not enough, choose an extra club, to hit into this three tiered green that slopes from back to front on the first tier and away from you on the middle tier. A pin placement in the middle of the green may be deceiving.
This is a short par four that will help most scorecards. but as the 14th handicap hole don't write down your score until you leave the smallest green on the course. With a dip in the middle and a slope from back to front your putter will do all the talking.
This is a good hole to score well on. This is a large green with a ridge down the middle. Be weary of a front right pin placement. A short knee knocker side hill putt may leave you scratching your head.
A great par four where long drives are usually hit. Watch the right side water hazard. This is a deep green with one flat spot in the back and the rest of the green slopes severely from back to front. A missed shot is better short than long.
This par three will test your skill with your short irons. Deep bunkers to the left and a tricky green. Birdie here may be a great score for a skin. This green slopes severely from back to front.
The finishing hole that makes you think risk reward. A large waste area guards the green but a long drive can carry the sand and reach the green. But catch that driver thin and pick up your sand wedge. Play it by the book and watch the pot bunker guarding the three tiered green.
