HOLSTON HILLS COUNTRY CLUB
Hole #1 | Par 4 (SW) M/W Handicap: 5/9 Gentle dogleg left with the green guarded by bunkers short left and right. The two-tiered green slopes from back to front. A properly positioned approach is premium.
Hole #2 | Par 4 M/W Stroke Index: 7/7 A large tulip poplar tree dictates the direction from the tee. Take on the tree and risk the water hazard, play around the tree and face a longer approach to an angled, narrow green with a severe fall off on both sides.
Hole #3 | Par 4 M/W Stroke Index: 9/5 Straight away par 4 with deep fairway bunkering on the right side. The green sits atop a large valley and slopes severely back to front.
Hole #4 | Par 3 M/W Stroke Index: 11/13 One of only two water hazards on the course guards the front of this medium-length par 3 along with a deep bunker short of the green and a severe fall off on the right side.
Hole #5 | Par 5 M/W Stroke Index: 1/1 It’s the longest hole on the course at 614 yards from the Championship Tee. Players negotiate several fairway bunkers and a narrow green with bunkering on each side, and two small pot bunkers just short of the green.
Hole #6 | Par 4 M/W Stroke Index: 15/15 Short par 4 with defense at the green site. Keeping the approach shot below the hole is a must on this hole, but be careful of the false front.
Hole #7 | Par 5 M/W Stroke Index: 17/3 A unique split fairway tee shot makes #7 one of the most written and talked about holes at Holston Hills. This short par 5 provides the best opportunity for birdie on the golf course.
Hole #8 | Par 3 M/W Stroke Index: 13/17 A short par 3 guarded on all sides by deep bunkering. Proper distance control is the premium here.
Hole #9 | Par 4 M/W Stroke Index: 3/11 Most players approach this green with a short iron, but the defense is all at the green site. The green slopes severely from back to front; below the hole is a must..
Hole #10 | Par 4 M/W Stroke Index: 8/4 A gentle start to the back nine with the premium being on a well-placed tee shot in the center to left-center of the fairway. Try to get off to a good back nine start here as the next 4 holes are the toughest stretch on the course.
Hole #11 | Par 3 M/W Stroke Index: 12/18 Measuring 200 yards from the back tee, this approach is to a very narrow green protected in the front and on the left and right sides by deep bunkering.
Hole #12 | Par 4 (5W) M/W Stroke Index: 2/8 This long par 4 measures 471 yards. The mid-long iron approach is to a very narrow green with deep bunkering 50 yards short of the green and on the left greenside. A close race with #14 as the toughest hole on the golf course.
Hole #13 | Par 4 M/W Stroke Index: 4/12 The only blind tee shot on the golf course. This bold par 4 has tremendous bunkering well short and right of the green. The green itself presents challenges when negotiating the spine in the back-center putting the premium on a well-placed approach shot.
Hole #14 | Par 3 M/W Stroke Index: 10/16 Despite the stroke index, this 212 yard par 3 is often considered the toughest hole on the course. The green site has a severe false front and slopes both front-to-back and right-to-left. A deep bunker short and left of the green collects even the best of approach shots.
Hole #15 | Par 4 M/W Stroke Index: 14/10 This hole starts a closing stretch of birdie opportunities. The front-left portion of the green is protected by a spectacular bunker complex. The green can be quite severe if the approach were to go past the hole.
Hole #16 | Par 4 M/W Stroke Index: 18/14 This drivable par 4 presents a classic risk-reward off the tee. Two small bunkers protect short of the green with OB both right and long. Many birdie opportunities have become bogies or higher with mismanaged distance control and/or aggressive play.
Hole #17 | Par 5 M/W Stroke Index: 16/2 This par 5 is reachable in two for the longer hitters and is the first of two closing par 5 holes. The green slopes away on the right and from back-to-front. Birdie or par is a must here to keep up with the rest of the field.
Hole #18 | Par 5 M/W Stroke Index: 6/6 This closing par 5 defends par with a severely sloped green from back-to-front. The longer hitters can reach this green in two shots, but are usually met with a difficult up-and-down when above the hole. Many championships and friendly Nassau’s have changed hands on this strategic closing hole.
