A Return To Freddy Couples’ Innovative Course Design

With the new season approaching fast, the new management at The Rise Golf has returned the course to Freddy Couples’ original design. Starting this May, players will begin on a new Hole 1 (as Freddy intended) which features a Par 5 – 550 yard play. Players who have golfed The Rise Golf in the past will surely recognize this one. Playing downhill off the tee, a good carry is required from the back tee boxes as there is a rock hazard and sand bunker located directly in front of the green that will swallow up any shots short of the surface. Essentially, the course has been reversed from the 2014 season with the back half (9 holes) of the course now  played first.
