Use the bunker to the right of the green as the target for your drive. Be prepared for an odd-angled lie on your approach shot. Use at least one club less than the yardage calls for on your approach to the green.
Start your drive toward the pond on the left to take the fairway bunkerout of play. Only the extreme long hitter can reach the pond from the black markers. Going for the green in two is possible but laying up to around the 100-yard marker will give you a large green to work with.
As the narrowest hole on the property, use one of your more comfortable woods to tee off with. Your uphill approach shot to the green awaits you but only adjust about a half club more for the elevation change. The green has two tiers with the back half about three feet higher than the front.
Although this green is one of the largest, it does have two tiers with a dramatic two-foot elevation change in the middle.
This hole requires three well-placed shots for all but the longest hitters. Use the fairway bunker on the left side of the fairway to help you direct your tee shot. This bunker is not within reach off the tee box. Right side of the fairway leaves you a straight shot to the green. Left side of the fairway leaves you a tricky second shot which flirts with the tree line. The safest landing area for your second shot is beyond the 100-yard marker. An amphitheatre on the left and a deep bunker to the right protects the long, narrow green.
This green has very little depth to work with on the left and is fairly full on the right. A ½ club more is always a possibility off the tee box due to the unnoticeable wind above the tree line. When the pin is located on the left portion of the green, you may want to aim for the middle of the green and two-putt for par.
You will need to hit your tee shot down the right side of the fairway. Any tee ball hit from the center of the fairway left will end up in the rough or below a retaining wall. The green is generous in the deep portion but a bunker on the left pinches off the front.
This dogleg left has more fairway on the right side than you can see from the tee box. You must hit your tee shot inside of 130 yards to have a view of the green. Make sure that you take notice of the narrow hazard in front of the platform green. Be aware of hazard or OB stakes surrounding this putting surface.
A perfect tee shot should be placed barely to the right of the front left bunker. Carrying your tee shot over that same bunker is ideal. Any tee shot toward the right bunker may result in an approach shot obstructed by the large oak tree atop the hill. Aim a little right of the pin, as your second shot will tend to move left when hitting the green.
Tee shot accuracy and control is critical. Driver is not a necessary first club selection. While the right side of the fairway offers a better landing area, it will leave you with a challenging second shot over the hazard and a grass bunker. A well-hit drive over the bunker and ledge outcropping on the left side will serve up a great birdie opportunity.
As the most difficult hole at Breakfast Hill, a good drive on this long par four will still leave most with a wood or long iron to the green. Any tee shot hit too far right will introduce you to a well-placed fairway bunker and the left side will require a draw around some trees. There is a generous approach area short of the green for players intending to hit this green in three.
For most players, this is a three shot, straight hole, so the emphasis on one’s tee shot should be finding the fairway, not distance. Two wellstruck woods will leave you with a full short iron into a well-bunkered green.
Don’t let the length of this hole fool you. There is a water hazard on the left side of the fairway (about 200 yards from the back of the tee). The hazard is reachable from all tees. The best approach is from the right side of the fairway. Center to left side of the fairway will give youÂ a tricky second shot over a water hazard to a narrow green.
This hole is shorter than it appears from the tee. The greenside bunker catches any less than perfect shots. This green â€“ surrounded by hazard – has two tiers, with the back level a couple of feet higher than the front.
This short hole is deceptively difficult. Expect your approach shot to hit the green and feed sharply left and toward the back of the green.
All but the very longest drivers will face a blind second shot to our largest green. When the pin located is in the front portion of the green, plan on landing your ball short and the letting it release on.
The bunker in front of the granite outcropping provides a great sightline to the center of the green. Missing the green a little to the right or short is much better than long or left.
This finishing hole demands a long, accurate drive, especially from the maroon tees. The carry from the championship markers to the front of the fairway is approximately 140 yards. The twin bunkers near the green actually sit 20 yards short of the putting surface. Any ball landing just short of this slightly raised green will tend to kick left away from the pin. Sharp drop-offs guard the right and backsides of this green.
