LPGA VOLVIK CHAMPIONSHIP – PAR 72 – 6734 YARDS
The 1st hole is a unique hole with four bunkers in the middle of the fairway so that players have to negotiate their opening drive. The green, which is heavily guarded on the left side by bunkers, is deceptive and narrow.
The tee shot on this beautiful par 4 hole is demanding with a pond that protects the left side and a fairway bunker guarding the right. The demanding second shot plays to a green that has a huge bunker fronting the entire right side that angles away from front to back.
The long hitters can reach this green in two shots, but the fairway is protected on the left with a pond and the right with bunkers and OB, while the green is guarded in the front right with a large bunker and on the left side with a pond.
On the tee, the player looks at woods on the left and bunkers and a pond on the right. This hole is a long iron par 3 with the hole favoring a fade shot. The green is an undulating green with many challenging pin locations.
This downhill par 4 has two ponds the player has to negotiate off the tee ball with a fairway wood the choice of club for a long hitter. The green is one of the most challenging at Travis Pointe with a mound built right in the middle.
This dogleg left par 4 can play short if you can reach a ledge in the fairway that feeds the ball closer to the green. The two-tiered green has many wonderful pin locations that will test any golfer.
The downhill shot requires a carry to the green unless a golfer can thread a shot between two bunkers that protect the green. The putting surface has three different levels that make this par 3 one of the best.
A long par 4 that is usually playing into a westerly wind with the golfer facing the most intimidating tee shot at Travis Pointe. The hole is framed with a creek that runs down the right side of the hole and OB on the left.
