Scotland Run Golf Club is Picturesque but There is a Trap

Tagged , , Leave a Comment on Scotland Run Golf Club is Picturesque but There is a Trap

Scotland Run Golf Club offers some great views through the course.  The course has strategically placed cranes, tractors and even an airplane (more off this later) is traps to rust. Sounds weird but somehow it worst to add to the chair of the course.  The greens can be defined as hilly or even roller coaster like depending on what side of the break you land on compared to the hole location.

Bunker Hill Golf Course Review

Tagged , , Leave a Comment on Bunker Hill Golf Course Review

Bunker Hill is either hilly or it is flat so the golf course changes its mind through the day.  The holes near the clubhouse, which sits atop a hill, offer the greatest challenges with elevation shifts and water running at the hill’s bottom across the fairways.  The rest of the golf course is flat but a few doglegs force players to hit smart not far.  The rolling hills can make some tee shots somewhat or completely blind.  Tribal knowledge helps on these holes.

Heron Glen is fun course that offers subtle challenges. The course has mild elevation changes but some fairways tilt to one side favoring drives to the other side. There are several environmental areas to carry but the course provides drop areas on the other side for shots that do not clear them.

Improve Your Driving Range Ritual to Save Strokes

Tagged , , 3 Comments on Improve Your Driving Range Ritual to Save Strokes

To get the most out of the driving range, I find it best to spend half my time practicing chipping. I got tired of flubbing chips or sculling shots across greens. It paid dividends and my score dropped. Why ruin two shots to get you just off the green by having no faith in your chip shot?
