Hole 1 Par 5 Handicap 3

alt

A tight par 5 starts your round at Prairie Isle. Long hitters can go for the green after a good drive. Beware of the wetlands on the left side. Laid-up second shots should be aimed towards left, green- side bunkers. Placement, not distance, is the key. Hint: Hole is all uphill.

Hole 7 Par 5 Handicap 1

Hole 10 Par 5 Handicap 2

alt

A great par 5 starts the second nine. Guarded on the entire left side and back by wet-lands, and a small pond and trees on the right, accuracy is demanded off the tee. Long hitters can gamble to hit over water on the second shot and go for the green, but if you’re short, the ball will find the hazard. Layups on second shots leave a short, easy pitch to the green.
