The Thirteenth: Par five and the start of the scoring opportunities. Played from a raised tee through a swale to a platform landing area, the winds prevail right to left and slightly into the tee shot. Bunkers catch errant tee shots short left and long right with a small stream lining the right hand side of the hole against a backdrop of mature birch. The approach is sharply downhill into a large green framed behind by a lazy bend in the Humber River. Reachable in two, this is a definite birdie opportunity but miss the green left and everything feeds into the woods. Miss right and short and you’re in bunkers, but with the size of this green, good play is rewarded and birdies still obtainable.
