+ HOLE THREE

This hole is one of the signature holes on Birch, this is a shorter par 4, dogleg right with an elevated tee. Most people will play a left to right tee shot with a fairway wood or hybrid, keeping the ball short and right of the fairway bunker down the left side of the fairway. The aggressive play, if you are a longer hitter, is to bomb driver over the trees right at the green. Either way, you should be left with a shorter iron into a long, narrow green.

+ HOLE FOUR

This is a straight away long par 4. The fairway is wide, so you can hit driver with confidence. Most golfers will be left with a long iron for their second shot to a downhill green with a hazard short right. There are mounds surrounding the green.

+ HOLE FIVE

This is the hardest hole on the golf course, a par 4 measuring 444 yards from the back tees. The hole is uphill and is a slight dogleg to the left. There is a hazard 100 yards from the green. Most golfers will need two good shots to get it over the hazard and onto the green. There is a hill and a bunker to the right of the green. Par here is a great score.
