long: placement tee shot is crucial. placement second shot. same third shot. ~200 ft at a time or less
short: better chance to put a drive up there. (rhbh) big hyzer around the corner will set up an approach and chance at birdie. (rhfh) big high turnover flick sets up similar approach. but if the approach isn't on a quality line, a birdie chance could become a bogey quick. woods of nc.
this place is a beast from the long tees. even the short tees are pretty tough. i'd like to play more often here...seems to be one course that is overlooked because of its location, slightly away from the bustling mecca of charlotte. i think it's comparable to the caliber of courses you'll find there. just gets less traffic, upkeep, attention.
