That contradiction is obvious right from the start with this magnificent par 5 dog-leg left. A huge water oak serves as your target off the tee, but keep in mind there’s a good reason they call it a “water” oak: streams and a lake border the fairway and green.
Put the driver away. This par 3 calls for pinpoint accuracy. A heavily sloped green falls toward the marsh on the left. So when we say “be right” we mean literally be right.
One look at this 548-yard par 5 and you’ll know why the word “oak” is in this course’s name. A large number of centuries-old live oaks dot its fairway, as do numerous bunkers. Ball placement is key on every shot from the tee to the approach into this sideways green.
Just when things were getting shorter comes the longest hole on the course. Over 600 yards from the back tees, this hole will test you physically – and mentally.
This finishing hole promises plenty of drama. The remarkably elevated tees will take your breath away for more reasons than one. They offer grand views of this bunker-abundant par 4 as well as the classically-styled clubhouse perched on the hill overlooking the 18th green and the course’s namesake live oak.
