|Hole 12 Blue Tee||Green of Hole 12|
Pro's Advice: The wide landing zone across the swamp rises gently, bermed in the back, but asks the golfer for a decision: the dogleg is quite sharp and cutting the corner could cut yardage but with extra risk of more marsh and narrower landing. A massive rock profides a target on the first landing zone, but in a narrower part of the fairway for those who length is not reliable. Perhaps a shorter shot to the wider part of the fairway might be a wiser choice. The green is larger, but a mind boggler, with tiers to negotiate! A maple is stragically located for the target to the green. The golfer then crosses our entrance road to the five holes on the west.
Naturalist's Advice: This hole carries over a large area of marsh hay. This natural pond that is much more stable in water height than some of nature's other water reserves, around here, (it is actually at the level of Teal Lake) and grows a different type of vegetation. This marsh hay was harvested in Fall, on showshoes, by the early loggers in this area, to be fed to horses through the winter. The green has bee rebuilt and raised, up from an old gravel pit that built Hwy 77 back in the 1940's. The huge boulder on your right is larger than you think. Moved here from hundreds of miles away by the ice age, it is about 12 feet tall. We had to dig down 12 feet, and dig a channel to roll it in with two huge bulldozers. That was as far as we could get it! White pine stumps were found here too, in the middle of the fairway, but we could not save those as we did on #6! However, some younger white pine grow on the left, left as a reminder of the old Pinery.
