RIVER COURSE – HOLE 10

Handicap: Men’s 2 | Women’s 2

The 10th hole is the longest par 4 on the golf course.

If you plan on getting to this green in regulation, it will require both length and accuracy on both shots.

Any tee shot to the left of the fairway may be lost in the trees and a tee shot to the right will make the hole play longer.

The green slopes severely from back to front and is pitched from left to right.

You will earn your par on this hole if you make it!

PRO TIP

The longest par 4 on the scorecard requires a drive with both length and accuracy as you don’t want to be playing a long second shot from the rough.

The green slopes not only from back to front but also left to right. Use the contour to get close to a right pin but make sure any shot into the green leaves you putting uphill.

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.
