Indian Trails 16

Par 3, 102 yards

This is the kind of hole that you'll only find on a city golf course like this, squeezed into a short distance by the constraints of space, and allowing players to take pitching wedge. (There's about 20 yards behind the green though, before the cart path; maybe the course should use them and make average players hit 9-iron.)The green's elevation is the only hitch; it's guarded on the left by a bunker and on the right and a slope on the left.

I launch my pitching wedge a little left and short and catch the front edge of the bunker. That dooms my short game and I end up with a 5.
