A classic risk/reward, this 571-yard par-5 double dogleg challenges golfers with more strategic options than perhaps any other hole on the course. A tee shot played over any portion of the deep fescue grasses framing the right side will shorten the hole significantly. Any successful approach played over the pond should safely find the wide putting green.
Dubbed “Tom’s Thumb” in reference to PGA TOUR player and course consultant Tom Lehman, the green on this 318-yard par-4 may be reached with a long and accurate tee shot that carries the lake on the left side and avoids the massive bunkers short and right of the green. A conservative tee shot into the fairway will often render an approach of less than 100 yards to the two-tiered green.
From tee to green, this 475-yard par-4 is one of the most difficult to gauge but one of the most satisfying holes to conquer. Golfers who successfully find the fairway with the tee shot must still navigate large mounding to the left of a sloping green, which is shaped around the lake’s edge. This approach shot will challenge even the finest long iron players.
At 423 yards, this sweeping dogleg-left around Cavner’s Cove – home to two large Loons, the state bird – is a favorite among TPC Twin Cities members, guests and tournament galleries. A successful tee shot along the right side of the fairway will leave most golfers with a simpler shot into the unguarded front right portion of the green.
