Playing golf at Widow’s Walk is much like driving a 600-horsepower car on a twisty road. Both reward finesse over power. To golfers, this requires hitting the ball straight off of the tee.
Widow’s Walk is an environmentally friendly links-type course, meandering through undisturbed wetlands and sand dunes with the holes laid out to fit among the site’s natural resources.
The 6,403-yard, par-72 layout has some challenging holes and being so close to the ocean, wind often comes into play.
There are four sets of tees—measuring from 4,562 yards from the yellow blocks, to just over 6,400 yards from the blue blocks, allowing golfers of all ages and abilities to enjoy their round of golf.
With four sets of tees for each hole, now offering six course yardage choices with the recent addition of two blended tee options, the staff suggests that each player select the tee appropriate for his or her playing ability for maximum enjoyment. Although the tee choice is a player option provided they are able to keep up with Widow's Walk pace of play standards. Widow's Walk subscribes to the USGA "Play it Forward" initiative, which encourages golfers to play from their most enjoyable course yardage, even if that requires one to create a starting point forward of our most forward teeing area. General recommendations are as follows:
BLUE tees for men with handicaps of 7 and below.
WHITE tees for men with handicaps of 8 to 17; and women with handicaps of 5 and below.
WHITE/SILVER for men with handicaps of 18 to 23; and women with handicaps of 6 to 11.
