Myater and narrow fairways call for good A water well provides the course with good irrigation and the five water And it also has helped make the greens some of the best in the Whitaker I think its a good test of golfing the pro Its not impossible to Here is Whitakers holebyhole anlysis of the course 1 448 par A good drive and a good drive to the since the fairway slopes to the right is needed on this straight Two traps flank the 2 340 par A short par 2 is one that demands accuracy from the since a large water hazard lurks to the left on the fair 3 460 par This big dogleg left features another water this one all the way across the fairway halfway to the Whitaker recommends driving to the right side of the hen using a 3wood over the water to lay up short of the 4 265 par Bunkers 50 yards short of the green leaves the golfer with a and two more on either front side of the green dont make later shots any 5 275 par Dont miss the fairway with outofbounds up close on the left side and heavy woods to the More water sits in the crook of the dogleg 100 yards short of the 6 165 par One of the prettiest holes on the with an elevated tee box featuring a view of the The green lies in a valley 7 160 par The second par requiring a 46r5iron to reach the 8 397 par One of the two toughest holes on the with a dogleg a water hazard in the fairway and two big traps guarding the The fairway slopes to the then back toward the golfer near the It takes a good shot 240 yards to get close enough to the water to set up a good second 9 510 par A severe dogleg right with two traps and a water hazard makes this a memorable and tough Cutting the dogleg is difficult with heavy woods to the and laying up to the hole isnt easy with the water hazard on the right side of the fairway near The back which is well on the way to will be similar to the front Whitaker Itll be a little but itll have a lot of some water and he Nelson nabs Open AP It would be easy to lose Larry Nelson in a No trouble at
