|Hole 14 Back Tees||Hole 14 Fairway|
Pro's Advice: Tee off parallel to the entrance road, over gently rolling terrain to a hilltop green. You can actually see the green through the old highline cut to your left, but you must go around the dogleg and play the fairway. This view is just a teaser! A long high drive from the tees will invite an adventurous golfer over a grove of young balsams, to a large landing zone beginning at 200 yards away. Otherwise, the safer route is to play a short shot down the fairway. The uphill green poses a big risk/reward senario. A second shot off the right side leaves you a difficult third shot up the hill. The smarter you play 14, the lower your score.
Naturalist's Advice: The grove of young balsams, with young white birch interspersed, is typical of the natural recovery of the north country vegetation where there was a clearing for an old road that came through here. The thick dense recovery growth is ideal for some smaller wildlife. The older woods harbor different species, and the really mature forest harbors almost no wildlife! Halfway down this fairway, we discovered what we must be a trunk highway for the wildlife getting to the pond on #15, and to the lake-we repeatedly saw the footprints in the dirt as we tried to grown golf turf! The wildlife have very definited travel routes that are not easily disrupted!
