Video: Scary No. 5 at The Sanctuary

Director of Golf/PGA professional Bob Schulz tells you how to play the treacherous par-5, fifth hole in New Lenox.

The good news is that it’s a par-5. The bad news is that you can get in trouble fast if you’re not careful.

The par-5, fifth hole at The Sanctuary is listed at 568 yards from the black tees. Offering a dogleg left, tee shots that stay too far left will make the second shot difficult. As you approach the hole, the landing space available in the fairway is reduced and becomes chute-like. Rated as the No. 1 handicap hole on player scorecards, your work isn’t finished on the green, either, as pin placement plays a huge factor.

“You definitely don’t want to have to putt downhill,” Sanctuary pro Bob Schulz said.
