Love this view from the top of the crest on the par-5 13th at Christman's Windham House Mountain Course. One of the many delightfully quirky holes on this homemade layout. Another 250 yards way downhill can give you a look at eagle, but miss anywhere but short and you're looking at a big number. A layup needs to contend with two trees guarding the fairway about 80 yards from the green. Split the trees or getting to the green in regulation will be difficult.
Upon reaching the green, you'll find an incredibly difficult green with barely noticeable dramatic breaks. My family has been coming here annually for a long weekend for at least a decade, and it took most of that decade for us to decide which way the green slopes. The severe downhill slope of the fairway meets the more gradual slope of the green making it appear slightly uphill from front to back. In reality, it's an optical illusion, as with the fairway, and the entire slope of the larger mountain from which the course is carved, this green slopes slightly downhill from front to back. Given the nervy approach that has dramatic drop-offs left and long, and a bunker right, getting in position is tough, especially with back or left pin positions, making a 2-putt a victory.
Just a delightful golf hole all-around. Can't recommend this course enough to anyone who finds him/herself in the area.
