The 11th hole at Arcadian Shores might not look like much of a big deal when looking at the scorecard or when first driving up to the tee box from the 10th hole, but that is not the case at all.  This tough, slightly uphill hole that will leave golfers wondering “What happened?” if they have to write bogey or higher on the scorecard.  We want to help today with some tips and will hopefully give some insight into taking on this par 4.

Playing anywhere from 425 from the black tees to 276 for the ladies, The tee shot on No. 11 is very important for a golfer to get into the fairway.  There are some sparse trees on the left-hand side that protects passing cars from wide left shots.  Once on the fairway players need to be ready to deal with how far away they are from the green.  The hole is elevated and has bunkers on both the left and right side of the greens waiting to eat up bad approach shots. As the fairway runs up to the putting surface golfers must be prepared to pull more club that they think.  Unless downwind (which almost never happens) players will need to take more club than they think to get the ball to the green.

The green is not very large so once players have reached the putting surface getting the ball in the hole in 2 putts or less should not be a problem.  The green does slope from back to front a good bit so staying below the hole is beneficial.  Players that find themselves above the hole could be in for a tough go at making par, but other than that if the green can be reached in regulation, a par should be expected.
