Hole 13 - Par 4
|Yardage: 417 | 400 | 401 | 323|
This is a ticklish dogleg left par 4 that offers a number of options to make your par. The obvious route is a tee ball straight down the middle to the turn in the fairway leaving an approach shot of 180 yards. Since the green is one of Richmond’s smaller and more undulating putting surfaces, an alternate route may make the hole play slightly easier.
The more skilled player, who can shape their shots, will draw their tee shot around the corner. Or, some players more comfortable fading the ball may aim directly at the fairway bunker and move their tee shot off of it. Power hitters in control of their game that day may gamble and try and cut the corner to significantly shorten the approach shot.
Wherever you play, your approach shot from it requires precision because the further back you are - the smaller the target appears. Once you are on the green have a good look before you putt. The slope is so subtle that local knowledge really plays a part.
