Feeling risky today? Try going for it in two at the par-5 7th hole at Diamondback. There’s a path for getting there successfully – but as General Manager Patrick Wilkinson explains in this video the risks involved, and offers an alternate strategy for playing it safe.
Hello, I’m Patrick Wilkinson, general manager at Diamondback Golf Course. And today we’re out here on hole number seven. It’s a par five, 478 yards from the white tee. A little risk/reward par five for you today. We’ve got penalty areas down the left and the right side, so a tee shot is premium here. For long hitters? Hey – go for it in two if you can, but make sure you get it there in your second shot. Otherwise, you’ll find the water or a heavily guarded bunker.
Your lay up is actually from about 150 yards out, so you hit something off the tee box to get you in this area, about 200 yards, 250 yards out. Give yourself 150 to 100 yards in for a good second shot. Third shot into the green.
The green, it slopes from back to front, going toward the water. So anything a little long, you’re going to have to really be careful to make sure you hit a good chip shot. Otherwise, it’s going to roll off the green into the bunker, and we definitely don’t want that out here. So leave it below the pin, and make a good putt, and you’ll have a good score on this hole today.
