Graham-Cooke
trou1

HOLE 1

Par 4

Prevailing winds and slope force shots to the right. Try to stay left of centre. Your second shot usually has a downhill lie attracting the ball towards the right front bunker. NOTE – verify the 9th hole position.

trou2

HOLE 2

Par 4

Try and get the tee shot to the right side of the fairway so you have a clearer entrance to the green because the bunkers are three deep to the left side. This green slopes away from the Owl’s Head Ski Mountain.

trou3

HOLE 3

Par 3

The elevated tee with prevailing left to right wind makes this hole very difficult for those back tees. Double-check your alignment and make it your best swing.

trou4

HOLE 4

Par 5

This is a hole that is reachable in two, if you pass two very demanding accuracy tests. Your tee shot must be played over the left side of the lake and must roll through to the far side of the fairway. Next, you have to thread the needle through the fairway trees and carry your shot to the greenside bunker. This easily could be an eagle or a snowman.

trou5

HOLE 5

Par 4

The ideal spot for an approach to the green is past the fairway bunker. Can you get there? You’ll be looking straight at Jay Peak (U.S.) where there still a possibility to see snow during the month of June.

trou6

HOLE 6

Par 4

If you can’t hit the fairway here, settle for the left fairway bunkers rather than the forest on right. Your second shot is usually downwind and plays shorter than indicated. Try to get in through the opening of the greenside bunkers.

trou7

HOLE 7

Par 3

This hole is slightly uphill and often into the wind. Take plenty of club and don’t go for the sucker pins on the left.

trou8

HOLE 8

Par 5

This is the first hole where the lake is in play from the forward tees. The right side is safer, but longer. It is reachable in two, but safer to try to make birdie with a wedge. The green generally breaks towards the water.

trou9

HOLE 9

Par 4

There are optical illusions that may force you to aim your tee shot straight at the fairway bunkers. BEWARE! An uphill approach shot may require 2 or 3 clubs more than usual. This is Owl’s Head’s most difficult green and asks you to be short and left of the pin

trou10

HOLE 10

Par 3

Once again there is a prevailing left to right wind and it is best managed with a “knock-down” shot. The optical illusion here is the fact that the green slopes from middle to back.

trou11

HOLE 11

Par 4

The tree in the middle of the fairway is in a bunker. When you play to the right it is safer. However, long hitters would want to go left. The approach to green is downwind. There is a large hump in middle-right of the green that affects all putts.

trou12

HOLE 12

Par 5

This is you best chance for a birdie or eagle opportunity on the course! Avoid the fairway bunker on the right and hidden greenside bunker on the left.

trou13

HOLE 13

Par 4

Your best play is a fairway wood aimed left of the fairway bunker. But an approach shot must be on line to avoid deep greenside bunker on right and a slope on left.

trou14

HOLE 14

Par 5

Take dead aim for LEFT of the fairway bunkers with your tee shot. The widest landing area for your second shot is at the 10 yd. marker (left is best). The figure 8 green is very narrow and very deep. (2 or 3 clubs)

trou15

HOLE 15

Par 4

Only longer hitters choose the target line over the fairway bunker. The more safe play is a fairway wood left of the fairway bunker. Remember a dry ball is a happy ball!

trou16

HOLE 16

Par  3

Here is the island green that so many guests talk about but no worries. This is a short hole and has a large target. Aim for the pin, there is no water there!

trou17

HOLE 17

Par 4

This is a relatively short hole and does not require a driver. Save your power for the next hole. However, you will require finesse to create a birdie opportunity here.

trou18

HOLE 18

Par 4

Try and hit this one hard and down and the right side. Take plenty of club to climb the hill with your second shot. Deep, three-tie Red green may require 3 clubs more than you think.
