The Donald Ross designed golf course at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, NC opened for play in 1926. Since that time it has fueled Greensboro’s passion for golf and attracted tournament play to the Triad. The par-71 course offers five sets of tees to offer fun and challenge to golfers of all skill levels. It is home to the Wyndham Championship, and the only Ross course in the country to host a regular event on the PGA Tour.
Hole #1 | Par 4
The opening hole is relatively easy with a wide fairway and receptive green. The green is undulated so the approach shot must be played into the center of the green.
Hole #2 | Par 4
This dogleg right has a blind tee shot that must avoid bunkers on the right. The approach must be played into the front of the green to allow for its front-to-back slope.
Hole #3 | Par 3
Number three is an uphill hole with a large undulated green protected by deep greenside bunkers on both the right and left. Accuracy is a premium.
Hole #4 | Par 4
A slight dogleg left with a narrow fairway. Play down the right off of the tee and to the left-center of the green. Good putting is key if you are going to make par on this tricky hole.
Hole #5 | Par 5
You will need to be both long and straight on this medium length par 5. Long hitters can reach the green in two, but need to be careful as out of bounds borders both the left and right sides.
Hole #6 | Par 4
This challenging hole requires a layup off the tee as the tee shot plays downhill to a creek. The second shot plays slightly uphill to a large, difficult green. It’s one of the toughest holes on the front nine!
Hole #7 | Par 3
Number 7 plays downhill to a green surrounded by water. Play to the middle of the green! Escape with a par and you will come out on top.
Hole #8 | Par 4
Your tee shot must carry a narrow creek on this tricky hole. The second shot plays into a large, receptive green with only one greenside bunker. A good chance for a birdie here.
Hole #9 | Par 4
Play this slight dogleg right to the left from the tee to avoid a deep right-hand fairway bunker. The second shot plays uphill and must be played to the center of the green.
Hole #10 | Par 4
The tee shot must avoid the deep fairway bunker on the left on this extremely difficult hole. The approach must stay below the hole on this very demanding green.
Hole #11 | Par 4
Play your tee shot up the left to gain maximum yardage on this long, straight hole. You must land the approach shot short to avoid going over the green.
Hole #12 | Par 3
Number 12 is a long par 3 with two-tier green. Play short to avoid getting above the hole. This is the most difficult of Sedgefield’s four par 3’s.
Hole #13 | Par 4
On this shorter par 4, play your tee shot up the middle and pay attention to the hole location. Accuracy is key on this short approach.
Hole #14 | Par 4
On this long, slight dogleg left your tee shot must avoid the deep fairway bunker, while your second must avoid the deep right greenside bunker. Another tough par.
Hole #15 | Par 5
The tee shot on this treacherous hole must avoid the creek on the left and a bunker on the right. The rest of the hole is protected by a large pond on the right. Avoid those hazards and you will have an easy par.
Hole #16 | Par 3
The shortest par 3. Avoid the deep front bunkers and play to the center of the green. Controlling the speed of your putt is the key to conquering this hole.
Hole #17 | Par 4
Drive up the left to have the right angle into the green on this relatively easy hole. Play to the left-center of the green and let the slope take your ball to the hole.
Hole #18 | Par 5
A simple downhill tee shot must be played down the center on this long par 5. Avoid the four deep bunkers coming in and negotiate the course’s most difficult green and you may finish with par.
