Without further suspense, we give you the top hole from each of the three nines at World Tour Golf Links as picked by Tom Plankers, the General Manager.
The first nine, referred to at the Open 9, contains a replica of one of the easiest to recognize but hardest to play – the 17th hole from The Players Club at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. The third hole at World Tour measures a frightening 132 yards onto an island green that must be accurate, and there is no “bail out” location. How many balls are in the water – “Lots.” That’s OK – relax, step up, hit your ball, and keep your fingers crossed.
The second nine, known as the Championship nine, was modeled after the memorable holes from the US Open, Masters, and Players Championship. Picking the top hole from this nine is too challenging: Let’s go with the three holes known as Amen Corner from the Masters. What would Amen Corner be without the famous creek: Ray’s Creek – named after the famous Raymond Floyd. This is a treat for any golfer!
The Final 9, called the International 9, is made to simulate the most popular golf holes located in Europe. The top hole of this nine was chosen as hole #2, a par five modeled after the 4th hole at Valderrama Golf Club. The long par 5 ends at the tiered green and is tricky for players of all skill levels. If you hit a great tee shot, you have a chance to go for the green, but proceed with caution. Most players choose to lay up!
