QR #1 & 10

Perhaps one of the most daunting opening holes of any golf course, Quail Ridge Hole #10 is our #1 handicap hole and for good reason:  500+ yards uphill, over water with hazardous woods along the right side.

Hole #10

Off the Tee: Big hitters from any tee may want to make a calculated club choice. Although the prevailing winds will generally be blowing towards you, you may not want to flirt with water on your opening shot. Shots left of the cart path tend to roll left with the slope.

Once on the landing area, you will now be faced with a long,  uphill second shot over the stream with trouble on the right. A well played fairway wood or long iron towards the left center of the fairway is the best setup for going for the green in regulation.

On the approach shot, you will be faced with a large green with bunkers to the right and rear. For the higher handicap player, always play to the middle or favor the left. Right is trouble throughout this hole.
