Hole 1HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 5 4Men – 9370 359 31054Women – 7280The first hole at The Keene Country Club is a short par 5 with a slight dog-leg. Don’t let the length fool you. There is a brook that runs through the center of the fairway at various distances from the tee. Club selection is key […]
Hole 2HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 2 4Men – 13292 275 26924Women – 11264Another innocent looking hole to begin your round. Trouble lurks to each side of this dog-leg right. Keep your tee shot to the left to avoid the trees on the right with your approach. Out-of-bounds right and trees to the left, along with a steep […]
Hole 3HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 3 3Men – 17155 130 12033Women – 15110The third is a short par 3 with a bunker guarding the front and a bunker to the back right. Be careful to check the wind and don’t short-side yourself on this tiny green.
Hole 4HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 4 4Men – 3404 391 27044Women – 9260The fourth is where the course really begins. This is a straight-away par 4, but you better keep it straight. Out-of-bounds right and trees all up the left side. A good tee shot will leave you with a mid-iron approach to an elevated sloping green […]
Hole 5HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 5 4Men – 9370 359 31054Women – 7280A good tee shot is the key to this par 4. The pond to the right holds a whole lot of golf balls in its depths. Keep it in the fairway for a mid-iron shot to the green. A good birdie opportunity.
Hole 6HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 6 4Men – 1407 367 34164Women – 3300The number 1 handicap hole on the course for a reason. A par 4 that requires precision off the tee in order to have a decent chance at hitting the green in two. Your tee shot must stay right to get around the dog-leg, but […]
Hole 7HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 7 5Men – 5555 514 43375Women – 1357The longest hole on the course. OB covers the right side and trees line the left. The river running through the fairway can be a problem on your second if you don’t hit a solid tee shot. Your approach is to a green with a steep […]
Hole 8HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 8 3Men – 7209 203 13583Women – 15125A long par 3 that looks innocent enough, but this is the hardest hole on the course to par for the men. Two front bunkers create the need for a precision tee shot. Hitting it straight doesn’t guarantee par either, as your ball comes in to […]
Hole 9HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 9 4Men – 15365 302 25994Women – 13225You are coming to the turn with a slight uphill par 4. You must carry the river and a good tee shot can get you up on the top level and leave you an uphill short iron in to a fairly large green that is […]
Hole 10HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 10 3Men – 14162 149 144103Women – 18139The card says it is one of the easiest holes on the course, but it can be a very difficult par. Watch the wind and keep your shot below the hole on this very fast and sloping green. Bunkers left and right.
Hole 11HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 11 4Men – 12365 297 293114Women – 4285A straight-away par 4 with yet another elevated green. Trees line both sides of the fairway and the river runs through to catch any miss-hits. Take an extra club on your approach as the green is further from you than it appears to be. A […]
Hole 12HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 12 4Men – 2430 374 275124Women – 6265The second-toughest hole on the course with a narrow landing area with hazard right and trees left (sound familiar?). Your second shot will most likely be a blind long or mid-iron to an elevated green guarded by a bunker left and OB right. Par is […]
Hole 13HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 13 5Men – 10502 474 397135Women – 10341Thirteen has a challenging downhill tee shot with OB left and trees right. A steep left to right slope for most of the hole offers a challenge to your approach to this elevated two-tiered green. Keep it right and you should be fine. A good strong […]
Hole 14HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 14 4Men – 4420 385 359144Women – 8309A sharp dog-leg right with a tight tree-lined fairway makes it imperative that you are accurate off the tee. If you can hit the fairway you will have a good shot at par or birdie with a mid-iron.
Hole 15HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 15 4Men – 16365 327 317154Women – 12306A straight-away par 4 with a downhill approach to a green guarded by a bunker on each side. Get it in the fairway for a good chance at birdie.
Hole 16HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 16 5Men – 6505 490 432165Women – 2380Again, the tee shot is the key to this par 5. A dog-leg right with OB left and trees right. An accurate tee shot will leave you looking right at the green. Getting on in two is for the long hitters only, as the elevated green […]
Hole 17HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 17 3Men – 8165 151 95173Women – 1685An extremely elevated green offers a very challenging tee shot to a severely sloping green. Getting on this green does not guarantee par as 3-putts are commonplace. Par is a great score here.
Hole 18HOLE PAR HANDICAP YARDAGE 18 4Men – 18296 283 279184Women – 14274A par 4 going back down the mountain you just trudged up on 17. OB right guards this short par 4. The daring can go for the green here, but those trees catch a bevy of wayward tee shots. Your approach is to a green […]
