Challenging holes combined with a breathtaking scenery
The front nine feature some signature holes and gorgeous views of the beautiful hills of Pennsylvania. Tee it up and enjoy!
Number one offers a straight par 4 with trouble along the left side and trouble to the right near the green. Keeping your approach shot under the hole will help avoid three putting. This is a good par hole.
The second hole is another shorter par 4 that looks reachable for some longer hitters. The fairway doglegs to the right with the green nestled in the trees. This narrow green slopes from front to back, but a good tee shot should set up a birdie opportunity.
One of the signature holes of the course, this par three is one of the more daunting at Lenape Heights. As you look down at the green, you notice the large pond that separates the green and the drop area. Tee shots coming up short will find the water hazard and shots from behind the green will be faced with a severe downhill lie creating a difficult up and down to save your par. This would be another hole to be glad to score par on.
The only par 5 on the front nine, four is sure to be a favorite. With woods to the left and smaller trees to the right, this hole still gives plenty of forgiveness off the tee. Only the long hitters have a chance at hitting the green in two here due to the small water hazard directly in front of the approach to the green. Usually, a lay-up shot in front of the water lends itself well to a nice approach into the green.
Five is a slight dogleg to the right with an open fairway. A straight tee shot will take the numerous bunkers lining the right side of the fairway out of play. The fifth green is probably the hardest on the course. The entire green slopes back to front and a pin placement on the front edge will make for a difficult two-putt par.
This is one of the par 3 on the course. This uphill tee shot to a small green sloping from back to front will demand an accurate tee shot. Any shot staying on the putting surface is a good shot and making a par here is a good score.
Seven is a dogleg left with two blind shots into the green. The tee off is to a blind fairway and the approach into the green is also blind, except for those longer hitters. The green itself is nestled between one of our many ponds and a patch of woods that seems to eat everything up. An accurate tee shot should present a good birdie opportunity.
This drivable par 4 calls for a demanding tee shot. There are woods on both sides of the fairway and you might want to consider leaving your driver in the bag. A straight tee shot will be faced with a blind downhill second shot to a wide, but narrow green. This green has a lot of subtle breaks and will have you questioning your ability to read a green.
This par 4 requires a long drive to have a wedge shot for a blind uphill approach. Judging the distance of the second shot can be a challenge and this green slopes severely to the front near the front edge.
