Hole 10 - Chéticamp
This beautiful Acadian village, sheltered from the raging waves of the Gulf of St-Lawrence by a three mile long peninsula and a navigable harbour, lies gracefully at the foot of the Cape Breton Highlands at the entrance of the National Park, on the famous Cabot Trail. Founded in 1785 by the survivors of the deportation of 1755, its name however originates from the Micmac language. The population (app. 2500) lives mostly on fishing and tourism, in harmony with the mountains and the sea.
Advice from the Pro
This is a short par 4, 335 yard shot from an elevated tee. It gives the appearance of a great birdie opportunity. It is...but... the tee shot must be kept between the trees that line both sides of the fairway. Short but interesting
The Tee Shot
Your choice- take a mid to long iron off the tee or go with the driver.
The Fairway Shot
If you are successful with the driver off the tee the player should be left with about 50 to 80 yards to the green. Now, its a question of how good you are with the intermediate wedge shot.
The Green Shot
Most players should be in position for a birdie opportunity. The slopes move from back to front so hopefully the birdie putt will come from below the hole.
