Hole #1

Opening your round with a mid- to long-iron is no easy task. Make sure you have stretched well, because you’ll have to hit one of your best shots of the day here.

Hole #2

Play the big fade off the tee with the risk of finding the stream, or lay up straight (200 yards). Par is a great score on this hole.

Hole #3

Finally an easy hole! This par 5 is one to get your confidence back. But like all the holes at Battenkill Country Club, DON’T go over the green.

Hole #4

This par 3 seems simple, but don’t be fooled. The bunkers left and right are sure trouble, if you should visit them. So take dead aim, and fire away!

Hole #5

Your fourth chance to hit a ball in the Battenkill River. Keep the ball on the left where it is dry. A second shot is key to this difficult elevated green, which is surrounded by 2 dangerous bunkers.

Hole #6

A fairway wood, or long iron tee shot will give you a short iron into a tough, elevated green. However, long hitters may want to hit a risky driver over the stream on this par 4. This could make for a much needed birdie.

Hole #7

With a fairly wide open tee shot, your tee ball should leave you with a mid- to short-iron shot into a small green. Bunkers on three sides of this green demand an accurate approach.

Hole #8

The third and final par 3 requires another accurate mid- to long-iron tee shot. Miss the green short and right for an easy up and down. Long and left will leave you facing a miracle chip for par.

Hole #9

The longest and most difficult par 5 on the course, two long and straight shots will leave a mid- to short-iron shot to the green, giving you a good chance at birdie to end your round on a positive note.
