Triple "A" Golf & Tennis Club -- not as easy as it looks
Review by: John Olsen Triple A Club's golf course LOOKS easy - especially if you're simply looking at a scorecard and noting yardages. It's not. Though it is certainly a SHORT course, it's challenging for several reasons. Greens. They're small, and they're not flat. The slope on some (notably, #1 and #9) is downright mean. Fairways. Uphill, downhill, and sidehill lies are common. Distance. Wait a minute! It's a SHORT course, right? How could DISTANCE be a factor in it's being HARD? Well, it might be more appropriate to call this the "fakeout factor". Golfers new to Triple A are often tempted to use the driver on all the par 4 holes. Sometimes (especially, on #2 and #4, but also #5 and #6) this can leave you with an awkward "between clubs" shot or lying on the front side of a hill. Hole Number Nine. If you haven't played this hole previously, it often comes as a nasty surprise. It's a sharp dogleg left, with the outbound fairway sloping steeply to the right (into the #8 fairway). Then, the inbound leg is straight uphill to a green sloping steeply to your right. It's a challenge, this hole. The alternate greens and tee boxes provide, almost, a feeling of playing 18 different holes. On some holes, the difference wrought by the alternate tee box is just more distance. On #3 and #8, there are not only alternate tee boxes, but alternate greens, and those holes play VERY differently on the back nine. All in all, it's a nice, and surprisingly challenging, little course.
