Glen Eagle Golf Course Tour

Hole 1Par 4McBride's March

Description

Hole #1 is a fairly straight par 4 that can help you begin your round at Glen Eagle off on the right foot. By not playing too aggressive off the tee, you will find there is a generous landing area between 200 yards & 150 yards to the pin. With out of bounds to the left and water to the right that may be the smartest play. There is not much risk/reward with being aggressive on this hole as the green offers a simple putt sloping from back to front. Keep in mind not to play too much break on your putt.

Hole 5Par 4Heather's Bloom

Description

Hole #5 is a short par 4 that begs you to pull your driver out and rip one down to see how close you can get to the green. The smart play is to hit a hybrid or a fairway wood and put yourself out about 100 yards so you have a full swing to a slightly elevated tee. The sand bunker directly in front of the green will snatch your ball if your short on your approach. Play this hole right and you'll be looking at a great opportunity for a birdie.

Hole 6Par 5Links Land

Description

Hole #6 is one of the more challenging par 5's on the course. It would be wise to determine your club selection by playing the hole, in your mind, from the green to the tee. There is a hazard that runs out into the fairway that will come into play from all the tee boxes. If you decide to go with a driver, you are going to either have to fly the hazard or thread it down the skinny part of the fairway running to the right of the hazard. There is a high risk/reward for this hole and playing aggressive can put you in great position for your second shot, just don't miss your tee shot or you'll most likely end up in a hazard.

Hole 7Par 3The Highlands

Description

Hole #7 is a lengthy par 3 that will test your skill. You'll find that most days the wind will be straight at you, so you may need to take an extra club length to get it to the hole. A good score on this hole is par, so aim for the middle of the green take your two putt and move onto number #8.

Description

Hole #8 setups up really well if you naturally hit your ball right to left. With out-of-bounds and a hazard running down the left side, the smart play is to miss it left. Be aware of the two fairway bunkers that come into play off the tee. For your approach shot, try not to go pin seeking, aim for the middle of the green, take your two putt and move on to the next hole.

Hole 11Par 5The Curlen

Description

Hole #11 is a dog leg to the right, with houses and out-of-bounds running down the right side of the hole and rolling hills running down the left. There is a fairly generous landing area from the tee so anything down the middle with some movement either way should be just fine. Go ahead and go for it in two if you have the length because there isn't too much trouble up around the green. If the pin is on the right side be sure not to short side yourself as that is a difficult pin. This hole offers a pretty decent chance at making a birdie.

Hole 12Par 4Inverness

Description

Hole #12 demands one of the hardest tee shots of all the par 4's on the course. With water running down the entire left side of the hole and out-of-bounds running down the right side of the hole, you will need to be pretty precise to hit the fairway. The green is guarded by two front bunkers so you will not want to leave your approach shot short. The green is a pear shape and the safe play is to hit the middle of the green to leave yourself with a decent shot at getting home with two-putts.

Hole 13Par 3Murfield

Description

Hole #13 is a picturesque par 3 that isn't too demanding from the tee. The green is fairly large and doesn't have too much movement. This would be a hole that you will want to take dead aim at the flag and try and put yourself in a position to make a birdie. Be aware that if you go long and right you will end up in the bunker which will leave for a delicate sand shot, which could end up in the water.

Hole 15Par 3Paddies Laire

Description

Hole #15 is a great par 3 with a great view of the Wasatch Front Mountains. You will tee from across a waste area so be sure to carry the ball far enough so you don't come up short in the tall grass. There is a fairly large bail out area to the left and short right. If the pin is located on the back right side, don't get suckered into going for it, because if you miss it right at all you will have a difficult chip to get up and down to save par.

Hole 16Par 4The Royal

Description

Hole #16 is a challenging little par 4 that will test mostly from the tee. From any of the Men's tees (White, blue and black) you will get lined up to hit it down the left side. Don't get fooled by this because anything left will end up in the water hazard that runs down the entire left side of the hole. Play to the 150 marker and you will be in good position for your approach shot.

Hole 17Par 4Stone Haven

Description

Hole #17 is a tricky par 4 that makes you consider your options off the tee. There is a water hazard that runs out into the middle of the fairway about 50-60 yards short of the green and it requires a well struck tee shot to fly the hazard. The smart play is to take your 200 yard club and place your tee shot into the middle of the fairway. There are water hazards that run down both sides of the fairway so you need to make a confident swing to ensure you make good contact. Once on the green you will have some break on the east side of the green but for the most part the green won't have too much movement on you.

Hole 18Par 5Loch Ness Monster

Description

Welcome to the Loch Ness Monster! The hardest hole on the golf course. This a great test of skill and you may end up loosing some balls if you aren't careful. From the tee shot aim at the east corner of the club house, this will position you almost exactly in the middle of the green or just on the right side. Unless you hit all of your drive this will be a three-shot hole to get to the green. If you opt to lay up, you will want to just play to the 100 yard marker. If you decide to go for it in two, then be aware that the green is surround by several bunkers and you are going to have to hit it around them. The green itself won't cause you too many fits, but getting there may give you stories to talk about for years to come.
