Thoughts on the Green


Week Seven from The Vindicator

Hole Layout

Candywood Golf Course, Hole No. 7 - Candywood

Portrait of a shotmaker

The signature hole No. 7 at Candywood Golf Course in Vienna is our featured hole this week.
What the left-to-right fairway itself doesn’t shape in your mind, the lines of trees certainly will. It’s the trees that give this hole character and challenge.

The right-side trees taunt you a bit as you decide if and where to cut your tee shot. Then the left-side trees punish you when you misplay that drive.

The trees are short enough to allow you to fly over, but you’d better be perfect. No stinger drives.

The green is unique in its great width, but short depth — placing a premium on club yardage knowledge.
A ridge on the green from front to back creates a two-tier finish.

Family ownership (The Candellas) and family greenskeepers (Bob Rappach Sr. and Jr.) do golf great honors with this hole and course.
