Hole #5 – Risk/Reward Par 4

Driving south down the 101, our GPS directed us through a Post Office parking lot. It must have been the most direct route because we did find Crestview Golf Club with no issue. This course was plowed under and closed for the 2008 season, redesigned by Dan Hixson, and reopened in 2009.

The first two holes allow you to ease into the course with birdie opportunities. Hole #3 is a solid downhill par five with a sloping front to back green and Hole #4 has water that may come into play on errant shots at this Par 3. Hole #5 is a risk/reward tee shot. Long hitters can try to fly the pond and trees to the left, while short hitters can play it safe to the right.

As your round comes to a close, one more hazard poses a threat. The sign at Hole #7 states, ” If you slice, aim left to respect the neighbors property.” I heeded this warning and safely landed my drive in the adjacent fairway. Somehow I still managed to make par.

Birdie:  The greens are large, however multi-tiers make them challenging. This along with the four tee boxes and occasional windy conditions make this course interesting for all levels of golfers.

    We played this course last summer on our way to Bandon, and I have to say I would probably not go back again. The course was pretty dry, so much so that the big pond on #4 was pretty much empty. Like 30 feet or more down empty.

    Given this fact, the experience was about as good as could be expected. The scorecard was interesting, with the #1 handicap whole being the long par 3 9th. My playing partners (who didn’t get a stroke) weren’t so happy.

    Aaron, thanks for the update on this course. Most of the courses I play are small town, small budget tracks. I enjoyed playing here but it is probably better suited for a quick, single round or family play. I’m jealous of your Bandon buddies trip!
