LAKES COURSE – HOLE 5

Handicap: Men’s 1 | Women’s 1

Ranked as the #1 handicap hole, the par 4, 5th hole, will require two good shots to ensure a chance at making a par.

A draw sets up perfect for this tee shot, but any ball at or left of the white rock will put you in good shape for your second shot.

A small pond sits to the right of this green and any shot left or long will run away from the green.

Playing to the center of this green is safest but won’t guarantee a two putt on this undulating surface.

PRO TIP

A draw sets up perfect for this tee shot, but any ball at or left of the white rock will put you in good shape for your second shot.

The second shot to this green always seems to play longer than the number and you don’t want to miss this green.

A large slope halves the green and can repel your ball to the right.

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.
