Hole 7 - 167 yards - Short


The classic balance of par 3's is a trademark of Seth Raynor courses. The Short Hole green, built on an elevated table-top completely surrounded by sand, traces its origin to the 5th hole at the Brancaster Golf Club (now Royal West Norfolk) in England.  The greens of this genre are usually six to eight feet above a sea of sand, normally containing abrupt depressions, mounds and shelves on their undulating putting surface.  

Blue Mound's 7th was built on the most dramatic portion of the property, playing into a deep hollow and demanding precise club selection to avoid the hazards.  Here, in a test more of nerve than strength, the golfer is afforded an opportunity to display short iron and putting prowess.
