The Stanford College Golf Course Renovation Projects in Palo Alto, California is an exemplary design on the grounds of Stanford College. Initially planned in the 1930s by William F. Chime and George C. Thomas Jr., The Stanford course wanders its way through the lower regions around the grounds. The front nine is played at the foundation of the slopes, while the back nine zigzags all around the encompassing landscape, with huge rise changes on a few openings.
The clubhouse conveys only the minimum essentials, however, the staff is particularly obliging. The driving reach is a critical separation away from the principal tee, so make a point to appear well ahead of time on the off chance that you plan on exploiting the elite practice office. In the event that you don’t have the opportunity to make it to the reach before you jump start, work on putting green close to the main tee permits you to rapidly figure out the speed of the greens.
The first opening is a standard 5 that plays to a limit of 514 yards long. Try not to top your ball, as the drive expects you to hit over Junipero Sierra Road from the raised tee to the fairway underneath. Luckily, sufficient room on each side of the fairway gives some alleviation from the first tee butterflies, and a strong second shot implies that there is the chance of making a bird begin your round.
The third and fourth opening are consecutive standard 3’s, and both require constrained continuous squander territories. The best miss on the two openings is long, as the dangers stretch out at the edges of the two greens. The third opening is longer and can be reached with a long iron, however, the green on the fourth opening is minuscule, requiring a more precise shot with a mid-iron. An enormous protuberance in the third green requires precision off the tee to have a putting possibility of making birdies.
The twelfth opening is the course’s unique opening, a long standard 4 with a raised tee shot. A few trees in the arrival region present a difficult difficulty, either hype the sides of the fairway, and expect your ball to stay on track, or take a risk that your ball could be in the fairway and you don’t get an opportunity to go for the green. One intriguing eccentricity on this opening is that it plays like a standard 5 from the White tees and a standard 4 from the Dark and Cardinal Tees. Since it is a standard 5 from the White tees, they are really positioned further back on the teeing territory than the Dark Tees are, despite the fact that the absolute yardage of the Dark Tees is more noteworthy.
The fourteenth Opening is a scary standard 3, playing to a distance of near 200 yards from the back tee. Another constrained extend an enormous gorge is the main deterrent the player faces. The green is essentially uncovered from the side of the mountain, and any deviant shots require a ruthless downhill chip from hefty unpleasant to the green underneath.
