Watch out for # 2, the 620 yard par-5 challenge is the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 12, a 264 yard par-4.

At 6,075yards from the back tees, Holden Hills is a test of accuracy and course management. It's always nice to play a course that does not demand length off the tee. However, the course does not yield low scores easily.

Two of the three par fives measure under 500 yards, yet in each case, sometimes the best chance for birdie comes from laying up and setting up a simple third shot. Dangers lurk for the over-aggressive. The other par 5 measures over 600 yards.

The way to score well at Holden Hills is to keep the tee shot in play and set up approaches, as the greens are mostly small.
