LAKES COURSE – HOLE 4

Handicap: Men’s 5 | Women’s 5

The par 5 fourth hole is a true risk/reward par 5.

This dogleg right hole is guarded by a large lake that runs the entire length of this hole.

A bailout left leaves most players with two more shots to the green.

The bravest of souls will be left with a mid to short iron for your second shot and an early shot at eagle.

The green is generous in size but a miss in any direction will leave a difficult up-and-down or even the threat of a lost ball.

PRO TIP

A true risk/reward par 5.

With water guarding the entire right side of this hole, the question is…How much do you want to cut off?

A bailout left leaves most with two more shots to the green, but to the bravest of souls a mid to short iron could be left for your second shot and an early round shot at an eagle.

The green is generous in size but a miss in any direction will leave a difficult up-and-down or even the threat of a lost ball.

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.
