The Course

Hubbard Trail Country Club measures 3,042 yards for men and 2,624 yards for ladies. Both men's and ladies' par is 36. The interesting, older-style course is a shot-maker's course with its rolling terrain and tree-lined fairways. The greens are small, undulating greens that are well bunkered. A meandering creek comes into play on six of the nine holes. In 1998, a complete watering system was installed from tee to green. In 1999, three new tees were opened for your enjoyment. Other facilities at the club include a practice putting green, locker rooms, bar and banquet facilities.

 

Hole #1 Par 5 454 yds.

Chances of starting off with a birdie are good for the player that creates three good shots. This hole plays longer on most days because the wind blows straight into the player’s face. For the long & accurate player, reaching the green in two is possible on calm days?

Green- elevated and slopes from back to front. Sand bunkers on both front sides.

 

Hole #2 Par 4 319 yds.

A well planned three wood off the tee will leave a short iron into a small green, which is elevated and slopes from back to front. Sand bunkers guard both sides of the green.

Pay close attention to the influence of the creek on the break of your putt!

 

Hole #3 Par 3 155 yds.

Wind is always a factor for this tee shot! Two deep sand bunkers and two grass bunkers guard this elevated green. Par is always a good score on this hole.

Green- elevated and slopes slightly from back to front. Pay close attention to the influence of the creek on the break of your putt!

 

Hole #4 Par 4 302 yds.

The yardage makes this hole sound like an easy hole, but a strategic drive should result in a short iron to a very hard to hold, narrow green, which slopes from front to back, and is guarded by two large sand bunkers.

 

Hole #5 Par 4 375 yds.

The hole is a dogleg right that requires a strategic fade shot off the tee to have a good second shot at the unguarded green, which slopes from back to front.

This is the first of four non-elevated greens on the nine-hole course.

 

Hole #6 Par 5 531 yds.

This hole requires three well planned shots to find the green on this dogleg right hole. Trees guard the fairway on the left, and a meandering creek guards the right, which the player faces on their tee shot.

The second shot requires a well placed fairway wood or iron into the fairway ahead that is well guarded by mature trees.

The third shot can be an easy wedge in to an unguarded green, or a low shot from the trees that guard both sides of the fairway.

Green slopes from back to front, and does not break as much as one might think!

 

Hole #7 Par 3 173 yds.

The hole is guarded by mature trees down both sides of the fairway, and a deep water retention area on the right.

The tee box sets the player up to hit to the right, so take your time on this tee shot.

Green slopes from back to front, and has a large sand bunker on the left side.

Pay close attention to the influence of the North Fork river on the break of your putt!

 

Hole #8 Par 4 394 yds.

The player is faced with the influence of a head wind on this hole, which usually plays longer than it’s actual yardage! The tee box sets the player up to hit his tee shot out-of-bounds on the right side of the fairway, and trees guard the left side.

Take your time and set yourself up to find the fairway!

Green is basically flat, but has deep bunker on the left side.

Pay close attention to the influence of the creek on your putt!

 

Hole #9 Par 4 342 yds.

A well-placed tee shot is needed on this dogleg right hole, to have an unobstructed second shot to an elevated green.

Green slopes from back to front, and is really quick on the front side.

An uphill putt at the hole is a big plus on this green. This hole is guarded by one sand bunker left, and one sand bunker on the back.
