Simply put, The Seagate Country Club offers a tough golf course—one that demands accurate and long driving, as well as precise approach shots to the well-protected greens. The Seagate Black is, in fact, a course best enjoyed by more experienced players or those who don’t mind a good fight. If all this doesn’t scare you, then read on to discover what “weapons” to bring for the battle.
First, include your favorite driver—the one that produces long, straight drives. Practice your mid to long iron shots. Those are the ones you’ll be hitting on most par 4s and 3s. It’s virtually impossible to go around this track without hitting a bunker, so practice fairway and greenside bunker shots until your hands hurt. You may even want to bring your own rake, preferably an ultra-light one with a titanium shaft and square grooves in the teeth. Your raking arm will thank you at the end of the round.
Good putting is a must for any modern course, but in this particular case, it’s essential. If your approach lands on the wrong side or tier of the green, you’ll be looking at a 3-jack.
We also caution you to select the correct tees. Everyone wants to play the same course the pros play during the U.S. Open Qualifier and PGA Tour events, but don’t subject yourself to needless punishment. If your index is 3.0 or better, consider the gold tees. If your index is above 3.0, but lower than a 12.0, then we recommend the blue tees. For those above 12.0 and up to 18.0, the green tees should be adequate. If your game is above 18.0, you may want to consider playing the white tees.
