Carbon Country Club golf course, hole four
|The fourth hole of the Carbon Country Club golf course is the number one handicap hole. With two fairways, blue tee golfers need to check the sign south of the bridge to determine which green to aim for.|
According to head pro Tom King, when playing the unique fourth hole of the Carbon Country Club golf course, "you gotta let it rip off the tee".
As the number one handicap hole on the course, hole four seems to change its look each time it is played. With two fairways and two greens, golfers never know which way they will be taking the ball until they approach the sign on the south side of the bridge.
When the course is set up for the left fairway and green, golfers want to hit the ball as far as they can. A lateral hazard left requires golfers to hit a little draw or fade. Avoid a dramatic hook. With an uphill second shot, golfers should consider hitting an extra club.
The tiered, kidney shaped green is most difficult when the pin is placed in the back right.
For the right side fairway and green, blue tee hitters should be aware of the tree which partially blocks the fairway and can be trouble if not played properly. A fade is optimal for the right fairway. Although the right side is not as steeply elevated as the left side, players should account for the elevation and select their club accordingly. The small green, which seems level, is deceptively sloped left to right toward the Price River.
