Course Review for Keweenaw Mountain Lodge
It’s lots of fun starting with the first hole, especially if you have the wind at your back off the tee. However, woods and lodging cabins on your right can spell immediate trouble. Play your approach shot short as it will be sure to run onto the green nice.
Next, the second hole is a long par 4 with a significant dogleg right. You will be tempted to cut the corner off the tee box, but tall trees guard this option and usually make this a bad choice. Play it straight and find a good approach shot into a sloped green.
The third hole is a short uphill par 3 with the green raised above the fairway, and anything short will not find the green. Go long, and your chip shot back onto the green is scary at best.
Hole four is a deep par 5 uphill, with the fairway having a gully that cuts across the middle of the fairway. Try to carry this to the right, and if you go left, the hole only seems longer.
The fifth hole is a dogleg left par 4. There are many rolling slopes on the fairway, and the option left off the tee box only spells trouble. Note the green is sloped back towards the golfer, so good luck.
The sixth hole is one of the most unique in all of golf. It is a short par 4, only 330 yards. Yet massive slopes in the fairway and a large pond protect the green and make any approach shot extremely difficult. A good approach shot goes into the most challenging green I have ever faced. It has three levels, all sloped back towards the pond.
The seventh hole is another deep par 5 but it doglegs right. Wood everywhere, so make sure to hit it straight. It is not worth it to hug the woods right as clipping trees will undoubtedly sink your scorecard.
The eighth hole is another dogleg left par 4. It is not long, but the dogleg is 90 degrees and uphill. Hole nine is the final hole back towards the lodge and is a long par 3 with a sloped green.
