Hole 1 – Par 4
Handicap : Men 10 / Women 10
The opening hole at Greenwood Golf Club is a dogleg right par four that requires a well placed
tee shot to leave yourself with an accessible shot into the bunker protected green. If you choose to be aggressive with your tee shot, be sure to carry the fairway bunker at the 150 yard marker, otherwise, good luck! Par is a great score here.
Hole 2 – Par 4 (Women Par 5)
Handicap : Men 6 / Women 6
This hole requires a straight shot off the tee with out of bounds on the left and lateral hazard on the right. The second shot must be accurate as the player competes with a water hazard on the right, greenside bunker on the left and deep undulations short.
Hole 3 – Par 3
Handicap : Men 14 / Women 16
A true ballstriker’s hole, this 174 yard par three requires a very accurate shot with a long iron into a very small green. If you’re lucky enough to hit this green, it’s not a guaranteed par, this turtleback green has some teeth.
Hole 4 – Par 5
Handicap : Men 4 / Women 4
The fourth hole is risk–reward, a good tee shot will leave the player with a decision, lay up short of the water hazard at the 100 yard mark or risk it all and go for the green. This is a great opportunity to make birdie or better but if you’re not careful it could easily become bogey or worse.
Hole 5 – Par 4
Handicap : Men 12 / Women 12
This short dogleg par four seems daunting from the blind tee shot but looks are deceiving. A well placed tee shot a the top of the hill will leave you with a short iron or wedge into the back stopped green. Scoring well on this hole is achievable for all skill levels.
Hole 6 – Par 4
Handicap : Men 8 / Women 8
This straightaway par four requires a tee shot placed in the right-centre of the ravine-esque fairway. The second shot is blind, as the green is elevated from the landing zone. A well struck short iron or wedge should leave the player with a makeable birdie opportunity. A great putt here is key as this green could quickly add a few strokes to the scorecard.
Hole 7 – Par 5
Handicap : Men 2 / Women 2
A treelined, slight dogleg par five with zero bunkers. The seventh hole at Greenwood requires the player to hit a good shot off the tee into the tight fairway. The second shot can be either a lay up or for the not-so faint of heart an attempt to be on in two. This back to front sloping green is no easy two putt either.
Hole 8 – Par 3
Handicap : Men 18 / Women 18
This 140 yard par three is guarded by bunkers in the front left and back right. A skilled shot is required to hit it close on this two-tiered green. No easy par on this one!
Hole 9 – Par 4
Handicap : Men 16 / Women 14
This short par four is a definite scoring opportunity for golfers of all skill levels. A tee shot placed anywhere in the wide fairway will leave the player with a short shot into the accessible green. Avoid the bunker on the right and you will have a great look at birdie!
Hole 10 – Par 4
Handicap : Men 13 / Women 9
A skilled tee shot is required on this short dogleg par four. A pair of oak trees on either side of the fairway leave the golfer with a narrow window to hit the green with their second shot. If you can find the green here, you may just walk away with a good score.
Hole 11 – Par 3
Handicap : Men 17 / Women 17
This par three has water directly in front of the tee box which may be intimidating to some but should be no problem for the average player. Avoid the bunkers guarding both sides of this green and you will have no problem making par on this one.
Hole 12 – Par 5
Handicap : Men 5 / Women 3
This short treelined par five is very rewarding to a good shot off the tee. Having a second shot from the left side of the fairway will give you the best angle at the small green. Avoid the bunker on the right side of the green and you will have a good chance at birdie.
Hole 13 – Par 3
Handicap : Men 15 / Women 15
This par three has bunkers guarding the front right and back left of the back to front sloping green. A mid to long iron approach for the average golfer will put you in prime position to make a good score.
Hole 14 – Par 4
Handicap : Men 11 / Women 13
A short par four where a good tee shot is critical. Long ball hitters may choose to take an aggressive line over the trees on the left but must be weary of the fairway bunker on the same line. If you choose to play it safe and aim for the center of the fairway, be sure not to go too far right as the treeline closes in quickly.
Hole 15 – Par 5
Handicap : Men 3 / Women 1
Starting on an elevated tee; this long, dogleg par five is one of the tougher holes at Greenwood Golf Club. In order to have a shot at this green in two or to even have an easy lay-up shot it is critical for the golfer to place their tee shot on the right side of the fairway. Water on the right and woods on the left on the approach to the green make this hole even more treacherous.
Hole 16 – Par 4 (Women Par 5)
Handicap : Men 1 / Women 5
The finishing stretch at Greenwood gets even harder with the toughest hole on the course. This 445 yard par four has thick woods that run the length of the fairway on both sides, up to the 100 yard marker. The second shot is no walk in the park as it’s a long iron or fairway wood into an elevated, back-to-front sloping green. Walking away with a par on this hole may prove difficult for even the most experienced golfer.
Hole 17 – Par 4
Handicap : Men 7 / Women 11
This hole is green light all the way. The wide open fairway and large green make this par four extremely inviting. A tee shot placed anywhere in the fairway will leave the player with a relatively easy shot into the green. Avoid the bunkers on either side of the green and you may just make a great score.
Hole 18 – Par 4
Handicap : Men 9 / Women 7
The closing hole at Greenwood Golf Club has views of the clubhouse and the 14 Wing airfield in the background. The stage is set for an exciting finish where spectators can watch from the clubhouse deck. A well placed tee shot will leave the player with a mid iron approach into the elevated green. Avoid the bunkers around the green and you will have a great finish to your round.
