The Hole Story: Rock Creek’s Hole 2

Rock Creek GolfYou’re just a short drive from the beach when you tee off at Rock Creek Golf Course in nearby Fairhope, AL. The championship, 18-hole golf course has been rated 4.5 stars by Golf Digest, an accolade only given to 500 golf courses nationwide.

Rock Creek offers a player-friendly course for golfers of all skill levels. Designed by veteran golf course architect Earl Stone, the course boasts more than 6,900 yards, making it ideal for long hitters.

How to Play the Hole

Hole 2 is Rock Creek’s signature hole. The 434-yard par 4 drops 70 feet from the tee to the fairway. A second shot offers a force carry over wetlands to a green with a 30-foot-high bulkhead wall.

This hole is Rock Creek’s number-one handicap hole. The Rock Creek golf pro suggests hitting “fairway wood or long iron off the elevated tee some 75 yards above the landing area. The 175-yard second shot is a forced, uphill carry over a large wetland. The guarded green has a tall, wooden bulkhead backdrop.”
