The 10th Hole at Grande Dunes Members Club – A True Shot Maker’s Hole

The 10th Hole at Grande Dunes Member Course

The next hole covered in our Hole Secrets Series is the 10th Hole which Brian Vest, Golf Pro at the Members Club, says shows up on the card as the 18th handicap hole. He also states that “Many golfers would be surprised by this, as the hole plays much tougher than it looks. From the tips, it only plays 400 yards but the fairway is crowned and protected by a massive fairway bunker on the right. The approach shot is the real challenge here as players must carry the bunker short of the elevated green. If the player manages to hit the green they will likely have a good look at birdie.” He recommends going long as an option as a huge mound sometimes allows over hit balls to roll back down on the green.
