|Hole #10, Par 4, 303 yards
- Big hitters will be tempted to go for the green on this short par 4.
With trouble surrounding the green, a mid iron tee shot to the elevated,
severely sloping green may bring the best chance for birdie.
|Hole #11, Par 4, 317 yards - A downhill tee shot makes this short par 4 play even shorter. A decent drive leaves you with a short-iron approach to a flat green, protected in front by bunkers; one of the best chances for birdie on the back nine.|
|Hole #12, Par 4, 392 yards - This
rolling par 4 offers many options for your drive. A long iron tee shot
leaves you a mid-iron approach to a tight green - teeing off with a driver
may leave you with a tough downhill stance on your approach.
|Hole #13, Par 3, 171
yards - This first par 3 on the back has a large green, protected
by a series of bunkers. The forgiving green rewards a solid tee shot with
a decent birdie opportunity.
|Hole #14, Par 5, 535
yards - The par 5 fourteenth starts
with a blind tee shot to a medium sized landing area. Then you can
choose to go for it over a huge dip, or lay up into the bottom of
the dip and hit back up hill to the green.
|Hole #15, Par 4, 330
yards - This medium length par 4 is uphill from tee to green. A bunker
in the middle of the fairway makes a well placed tee shot essential to
making a birdie on the fifteenth.
|Hole #16, Par 3, 156
yards - The final par 3 at Marywood is perfect for a solid mid-iron
tee shot, with trouble to the left, the right, and long. A rolling green
makes birdie difficult from a long putt on this hole.
|Hole #17, Par 4, 372
yards - The seventeenth is a downhill par 4 with trouble on the right.
A solid drive gives you a short iron approach to an elevated, steeply
sloping green. Par is an excellent score here.
|Hole #18, Par 5, 533
yards - Only the biggest hitters can reach this long, dogleg right,
par 5 in two. A solid long iron lay-up will bring most golfers into perfect
position for a short iron approach to this elevated green. The eighteenth
is a monster of a finishing hole.
