General Manager Patrick Wilkinson and his daughter, Rachel, are back to give us a playing tour of one of their favorite par fours at Diamondback, the 447-yard No. 5. Check out the aerial views, and see how they recommend you approach it when you play it!
Hello. I’m Patrick Wilkinson. I’m here today with my daughter, Rachel Wilkinson, and we’re at Hole No. 5 at Diamondback Golf Course in Loris, South Carolina.
No. 5 at Diamondback is a par four, 447 yards from all the way back, but today we’re going to play it from 397 yards. It’s a nice hole. It takes a shot to get it off the tee box. It’s a slight dogleg right, so you want to favor the right-hand side going down the fairway. Anything left just will take you for a longer shot, but you can’t go too far right because we have a pond on the right side.
The ideal tee shot on this hole is to take it down center, center-right. Hopefully, you get it in the middle of the fairway. And then from that point, we’ll have a nice 150-yard shot into the green.
The No. 5 green at Diamondback Golf Course is a larger green, and it has somewhat of a slope from the back to the front, with a gentle three-tier glide to it. The big deal is, you’ve got to get it to where the flag is to have a good shot at birdie here. Anything short, you’re going to have to mount some ridges. It is surrounded by some mounds along on both sides, plus a bunker on the front left that will catch any ball if it comes up short.
