The par 5 ninth at Tetherow Golf Club is already a difficult hole. When the wind is coming from the South or Southwest, the tee shot is very difficult due to the tightness of the landing area which is surrounded by bunkers. So with that, a new tee was installed when renovation work was being done on the green surround of #8. As I stood behind the #8 green looking up the #9 fairway, I saw an opportunity to add a tee which would create a challenging tee shot. Those people who can hit their drives a long way with accuracy, this tee will definitely be a challenge. The tee is not intended for everyday play but possibly be a tee location for the Tetherow Two Ball or the next time we host the Pacific Northwest Club Professionals Championships.
Look for the tee to be ready for play this fall.
