Course Tour – Back 9
Southview Country Club
10th Hole – Par 3 – 175 Yards
This hole requires a solid shot. Any shots hit to the right may be prone to take an awkward bounce from the cart path. The green is visually deceiving. When the pin is white or blue, a 20-foot putt is relatively straight even if the slope of the green appears to break.
11th Hole – Par 4 – 389 Yards
A good golf hole. A demanding tee shot should favor the left side of the fairway – right is out of bounds. The second shot is played downhill to a relatively small, flat green.
12th Hole – Par 4 – 330 Yards
The tee shot plays to a blind landing area. A straight 220 yard drive will leave a short iron for your uphill second shot. The green is the smallest on the golf course and slopes from back to front.
13th Hole – Par 3 – 152 Yards
A modest length par 3 with a receptive green. If you are wondering about the wind conditions, look at the top of the trees or the American Flag near the clubhouse. Another hole that is best played from below the hole, especially when the flag is red.
14th Hole – Par 4 – 386 Yards
A slight dogleg to the right that is one of the toughest holes on the golf course. The tee shot is played to an undulating fairway. The approach is played uphill to a deep green. If the hole is located in the front, you should try to stay under the hole. Four here is a good score.
15th Hole – Par 3 – 157 Yards
Southview’s Signature Hole. The tee shot is played from an elevated tee to a generally flat green. It is protected on the left by a bunker and an overhanging tree that will protect a front-left hole location.
16th Hole – Par 4 – 446 Yards
Dog leg to the right that requires a good tee shot. Left of the fairway is water and right is jail. The second shot plays slightly shorter than the yardage indicates to a green that is protected by a front, right bunker.
17th Hole – Par 5 – 490 Yards
A gorgeous par 5 that curls around the hillside. Position your second shot carefully, you can play from a flat lie if you leave yourself 130-150 yards or 75 yards and under for your third shot. Anywhere in between and your third shot will be from a sloped or uneven lie. If the pin is located on the left side of the green, you must be under the hole on your approach shot.
18th Hole – Par 5 – 481 Yards
Straight-away par 5 that plays uphill at the end. A good, solid drive down the left center of the fairway is ideal. The second shot is usually played from an uphill lie to an undulating green that is protected by two bunkers.
