LAKES COURSE – HOLE 15

Handicap: Men’s 6 | Women’s 6

The last par 5 on the course and the longest, it can be reached by two solid shots if you are willing to challenge the pond that runs the entire right side of this hole.

Most players will aim for one of the 5 sand traps that guard the left side of this hole.

If you can avoid the bunkers on the left with your second shot, a third shot from the left side of the fairway will leave you the best angle into this long, skinny green that is protected by two deep sand traps to the left and right of this green.

PRO TIP

Another par 5 that you can challenge the water on the right with your tee shot.

If you can avoid the bunkers on the left with your second shot, a third shot from the left side of the fairway will leave you the best angle into this long, skinny green that is protected in front and back by bunkers.

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.
