Panola Woods Country Club offers a serene and challenging nine hole layout sprawled over eighty acres.
Narrow fairways guarded by towering, native oak, pecan and sycamore trees demand accuracy off the tee.
Our relatively small but undulated TifEagle greens not only will test the player's iron game but also their short game prowess on or around the putting surfaces.
Some regard the greens at Panola Woods the finest in the Miss-Lou region.
The club also offers a full grass practice facility with a two tier range and practice green.
Comfortable opener. Choose a tee shot that yields your favorite distance to approach an inviting green. Long hitters may opt to advance it up near or on the green but beware of OB right.
The fun really starts. The prudent lay up left of the huge pecan tree to set up a wedge approach. The bold player attempts to carry the tall stand of trees guarding the sharp dog leg and get home in two, challenging the lake wrapping around the green complex. A real risk, reward hole where an eagle or double bogey could be had.
Not intimidating from first glance but this hole collects a lot of bogeys. A miss slightly short is manageable. Miss left or long is a certain bogey or worse. Par is a good score here.
Difficult tee shot that calls for extreme accuracy to a narrow fairway guarded by trees left and OB right. Approach is to a green with a spine middle left. Take a par here and run to the next tee.
Finding this tight fairway here should lead to a birdie opportunity. Ideally try a right to left tee shot to leave yourself a short iron or wedge to a small, slopy green. Water lurks short of the green so take note.
Left or long of this green is purgatory. Misses slightly short or right will have a chance to scramble for par. Good iron play may yield a good look at birdie here. It tends to play slightly longer than stated yardage.
A devilish tee shot challenge defines this short, tight 60 degree dog leg par 4. The conservative play is a left to right tee shot played off the mound in the fairway. This leaves an approach of 120 - 150 yards. The brave player will try to carry the tall trees right with a long iron or metal wood to yield just a short wedge approach. Good luck!
Take a driver up on the plateau of the fairway. Lay up to your go-to yardage or go for the green. Long is doomed here so error short. Lots of birdies and an occasional eagle on this hole.
Strong dog leg left finisher. Choose your line of play on your tee shot. The aggressive play is to challenge the left side and leave a short approach but OB stakes await the miss left. Approach tends to play slightly longer than yardage so use extra club.
