Tips for Playing
Southwinds is a shot makers dream.
Southwinds isn't a long course, but don't let it's distance foo you. Accuracy is required on most every tee shot and 16 of the 18 holes have water and most fairways are lined by trees
Hole 1: Driver is not the play for most players. There is water crossing the fairway. A long iron down the right side gives you the best angle to the green.
Hole 2: From the back tees it is 200 yards to carry the water. Leaving a short iron to the green and a good chance at birdie.
Hole 5: A tee short down the left side will make this par 5 shorter and reachable in 2.
Hole 8: From the back tees there is too much risk for a driver. So lay up with a 200 yard shot down the left side for the best angle to the green
Hole 10: A short par 5, Hit a driver down the left side. And you can reach this green in 2. Maybe an eagle awaits you.
Hole 13: The crazy lucky hole 13. This hole is a 90 degree dogleg left. Hit a 160 yard shot on the left side over the big tree at the end of the palms. You will have a shot shot into the green. The farther you play your tee shot to the right the long the hole plays.
Hole 18: Make sure you can carry 225 yards with your driver before you decide to go for it. If you don’t..lay up with a shot of 180 yards to the middle of the fairway. Leaving you 150 to the green.
If you like to work the ball around and play different shots … you will love Southwinds.
