Hole #1, Par 5, 500 yards - At 500 yards, this opening par 5 is a challenge. A water hazard on the right side of the fairway adds to the importance of control on the tee shot. #1 is the fourth toughest hole at Marywood.
|Hole #2, Par 4, 470 yards - A
tough par 4 awaits you on the second hole at Marywood. With bunkers to
the left of the fairway, a solid tee shot is a must to have a chance
|Hole #3, Par 4, 382 yards - A
mid-length par 4, the third hole at Marywood has bunkers to the left,
trees and a steep hill to the right. A good drive leaves you with a short
iron approach to this undulating green.
|Hole #4, Par 3, 215 yards
- The first par 3 at Marywood is long, with a large pond immediately in
front of the tee. A large, forgiving green, with bunkers to the left,
offers a good chance at making par.
|Hole #5, Par 4, 433 yards
- This long par 4 with an elevated green requires a mid to long iron approach
to a mid-size green with trouble behind. The green slopes back to front,
making most putts a challenge.
|Hole #6, Par 3, 154 yards
- This beautiful par 3 is a good birdie opportunity when the pin is toward
the back of the green. Short-iron tee shots will funnel to the hole with
a back pin placement, bringing players short birdie putts.
|Hole #7, Par 4, 374 yards
- A steep hill to the right of the fairway brings the left side bunkers
into play on the tee shot of this par 4. A solid drive leaves you a short
to mid iron approach to a severely sloping green, protected on all sides
|Hole #8, Par 4, 344 yards
- A long drive leaves you a short iron approach to this tricky par 4.
With woods to the right and trouble to the left, finding the fairway is
a must for a good score on the eighth.
|Hole #9, par 5, 497 yards
- This long par 5 is difficult to reach in two. The elevated green is
tempting, but protected by deep bunkers. A lay-up to a short iron approach
is the best chance of making birdie on this final hole before the turn.
