LAKES COURSE – HOLE 13

Handicap: Men’s 2 | Women’s 2

The longest par 4 on the course typically plays into a left to right wind which pushes the tee shot towards the sand trap and tall grass on the right.

A draw up the right center will fight the wind and catch a slope which should get you an extra 20 yards.

The green is guarded by a large sand trap on the left and a pond protects anything to the right of this green.

If used correctly, the contours of the green can help you get closer to the flag.

PRO TIP

The longest par 4 on the course typically plays into a left to right wind which pushes the tee shot towards the bunker and tall grass on the right.

A draw up the right center will not only fight the wind but catch a speed shot which should get you an extra 20 yards.

This second shot is no time to relax, as the green is guarded by a large bunker on the left and the contours on the greens can push your ball away from or closer to the hole if you can use them correctly.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Queenstown Harbor is home to many species of trees that line the fairways, wrap around the shorelines, and provide deep pockets of protected forest. You’ll notice a variety of tree groupings as you play both courses – often consisting of pines, oaks, maples, dogwoods and evergreens.

The fairways at Queenstown Harbor are a beautiful Patriot Bermuda grass. The greens are a type of turf grass called bentgrass. Bentgrass consists of very thin blades of grass densely packed together that offers a smooth surface for a perfect putt. Bentgrass is a popular choice for golf courses in the area and even the choice at Augusta National.

In addition, Queenstown Harbor has a wide variety of native grasses that grow around Queenstown Harbor. Along the shorelines you’ll find wetlands with a variety of Chesapeake Bay vegetation. The inland are freshwater lakes offer a new variety of native plants.

WILDLIFE HABITATS

Each and every day, a wide variety of wildlife can be found on the golf courses. These animals find refuge in the waters, trees, and woods that surround the property – and we are committed to preserving these habitats.

One of Queenstown Harbor’s most popular inhabitants is the whitetail deer. While out golfing, you’ll often spot these deer huddled in small groups, walking across fairways, or grazing along the wood lines.

The most notable bird overhead is the osprey that arrives in mid-March after completing a long flight from South America. They return to South America by mid-October and will return to the Chesapeake Bay (often to the same exact nests) to start families and fish from the abundant waters.

Bald eagles grace us with their presence regularly and blue herons are often spotted along the shorelines both on the river and lakes courses.  They will quietly hunt the inland lakes and coastal shorelines.
