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, the staff suggests that each player choose 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 players with 7 handicaps and below.
WHITE tees for players with handicaps of 8 to 25.
SILVER tees for male players with handicaps of 26 and above and for women with handicaps of 18 or less.
YELLOW tees for novices and women with handicps of 19 and above.
Whether you’re a regular visitor, or you're playing here for the first time, we trust that your experience will be athletically challenging and aesthetically pleasing.
