You’re fighting to drive the ball to its rightful place in the elevated hole. And that’s what you have to do–use a driver! Conquering this hole is all about taking the risk. Lay up down the middle with a mid iron if you don’t want to use a driver. This signature hole is also a popular wedding site for many couples looking to get married on a golf course.
Built out of the side of a mountain, you know to expect some unique hole designs out of the Trickle Creek Golf Course. One in particular that stands out is Hole 11, a par-3 hole that teases the player with the notion of getting a hole in one. You tee off from an elevated position, great for catching the views of the area. It’s no surprise that it’s Trickle Creek’s signature hole.
Although not part of the official route, the 19th hole at Bear Mountain Resort is a fun betting hole. It’s all or nothing here. The green sits at the edge of the mountainside, and if your shot isn’t a short-iron, perfectly straight, soft-landing, say goodbye to your money. This hole was built after the course opened, and is considered an “encore” to the official course.
There’s a good reason this hole is called the “Cliffhanger.” Situated on the side of a cliff, you might want to bring extra balls, because chances are, you will lose some to this infamous hole. The Cliffhanger makes good use of the natural terrain, and plays somewhere between 140 and 200 yards long. Watch out for the difficult winds in the Toby Creek Valley, and unless you’re lucky to land in one of the two bunkers, a poor shot could mean you lose your ball to the bottom of the cliff. All the tees require one club less.]]>
