The day can best be described as wet.  The forecast did not lie and it rained most of the day at Fox Hollow Golf Club.  Despite the crummy weather, we continued to play because we were playing golf to support the 2018 Henry Snyder Memorial Golf Invitational and the day would benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation.  My brother kept reminding us that playing in the rain was nothing compared to what the SEALs endure.

Fox Hollow Golf Club Overview

To describe the Fox Hollow as hilly is an understatement.  If you walked this course, I guarantee that your calves will burn the next morning.  There were several blind tee shots that do not allow for too much strategic planning form the tee box.  The par 5s were some of the longest I have played in a long time.  The 15th hole measures 555 from the white tees and it played that and more with a wet fairway.

Fox Hollow Golf Club Course Condition

The day was rainy and the day before was rainy so the course was wet.  The course management called the event short due to course saturation.  Despite the wet conditions, Fox Hollow was in good shape.  The tee boxes looked great.  I cannot comment on the sand traps as playing scramble removed the need to ever play out of them.

If I Ran Fox Hollow Golf Club Course

The management and staff took great care of us during the tournament.  The area that needs improvement lies in a the lack of signaling for clearance on the blind tee shots.  A cart based GPS with images of the foursome in front of you would help.

Favorite Hole at Fox Hollow Golf Club

I liked the 15th hole for all 555 yards of it.  Our tee shot did not roll that far and I imagine on a dry fairway we could have gained 30 more yards.  The hole’s length made the third shot further away than most par 5s and that added a new level of challenge to shot selection.

My Final Say

I will return to Fox Hollow Golf Club to play it drier conditions.  As always, now that I know the layout of some of the holes I will play them better.  We also did not play five holes and I would like to see what they have to offer.
