Thornapple 5

Par 5, 517 yards, dogleg right

The grandddaddy of the course, this hole plays over 600 yards from the blue tees. It angles right, around the river, forcing you to think about angle and accuracy as well as power. The course's toughest test.

I start my 3-wood low, short, and right, and, with water between me and the hole, am content to play 4-iron from there, which I chunk. I poke a good 3-wood towards the hole and reach the green with a 9-iron. I two-putt from 30 feet for a bogey 6.
