Carolina National
Heron #5 – Par 3

Black – 203 Yards
Gold – 191 Yards
Blue – 182 Yards
Teal – 161 Yards
White – 121 Yards

The signature hole at Carolina National, a par 3 that requires a good tee shot over the marsh to a bulk headed peninsula green.

Tee boxes wrap almost 180 degrees around the hole, again presenting a distinctly varied challenge from one tee to the next.

The wind will likely play a significant factor here and will make club selection very important when trying to hit the green in regulation.

Recovery shots will be a challenge as well, with undulation and bunkers around the playing surface.

Take a few extra seconds to enjoy the scenery of the Lockwood Folly River!
