Mean 18 Hole 17: Cedar Valley hole #5

Posted:

TIPTON (KWWL) -- Cedar Valley golf course is nicknamed the Badlands, and hole #5 is the baddest of the Badlands.

At only 340 yards, this par 4 may not seem too intimidating, that is until you step in the teebox.  As a downhill hole, a perfect shot might reach the green, but a bad shot will find nothing but trouble.  The fairway stands only 35 feet wide, and any shot offline in either direction, will head down a wooded ravine.

Once this is navigated, water guards a very quick green.  Come close to par, and you should walk away happy.
