The favorite hole among our locals is Hole 5 with water to the right it can be difficult for most golfers, but offers a chance for birdie playing only 290 yards. Please see further information about each hole below.
Hole # 1
A generous opening hole, the par five first hole is a downhill dogleg right measuring 510 yards from the tips. The tree lined fairway creates a bit of a challenge for the opening tee shot but a well placed second shot should put most players in a scoring position with an easy third shot. The putting green slopes back to front and right to left.
Uphill and into westerly winds, the second hole plays longer then it looks. Accuracy is needed to avoid the trees and ensure an open shot to the elevated green which slopes generally from back right to front left.
Hole # 3
A short Par 3, the third hole is harder than it looks from the tee. A sand trap on the left and a green that slopes away in many directions, make this hole a fun challenge.
Hole # 4
With a blind tee shot on the 4th , and a narrow fairway that runs away downhill and right, a well executed drive is required. A misjudged second shot will run all the way down the back slope of this small green.
Hole # 5
More of visual challenge, this short Par 4 demands the golfer hit over two large trees guarding the fairway. Longer hitters can reach the green off the tee with a precise strike.
Hole # 6
A straight away Par 4 with a creek crossing around 60 yards short of a small green that slopes away on all sides.
Hole # 7
Visually unintimidating, Wheatland’s longest Par 3 can punish those who are inaccurate with their tee shot. The green feeds away on all sides from the middle back left, with drop offs to the creek on the left and front left.
Hole # 8
The longest hole on the course is a dogleg right par 5. Longer hitters will need to cut the leg, while all others will need to lay back to around 280 yards short of the hole to remain in the fairway off the tee. Best approach is from the right side and be aware of a small creek that splits the fairway 150 yards short of the green.
A brilliant short finishing hole that tempts longer hitters to go for the green off the tee over the trees along the right hand side. However, with an elevated green which slopes towards the right and back towards the fairway the hole is best played with two short high percentage shots to the green.
