Golf: Sharp dogleg greets golfers at Pheasant Run

At Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, there is no waiting around for the toughest hole on the course.

Golfers are greeted with a challenge right from the start when they step to the tee on the first hole, a 543-yard par 5 that features a sharp dogleg to the right.

Knowing how to attack the hole is critical.

An aggressive approach can lead to early-round frustration while a more conservative plan might help a round get started off in the right direction.

“It’s not a driver hole and you’ve got to play it like a three-shot par 5,” Pheasant Run’s PGA Professional Jamie Nieto said. “A lot of guys take driver and go at the green, but the way the trees are along the dogleg it is really tough to get home in two. My advice is to hit a 3-wood, then hit something to get you to 130 yards and go from there.”
