Valhalla hole by hole guide:
Hole 7 – Par 5 – 597 yards
There is opportunity to be aggressive on Valhalla’s par 5, depending on your disposition. There’s a split fairway, with the left route shortening the hole by some 50 yards. That said, the landing area – as well as being surrounded by some of the most penal rough on the course, and a water hazard to the right – is a mere 26 yards wide. From here, an approach of around 220 yards remains to a green fronted by a water hazard that also protects its entire left side. Eagles will be made here, but expect to also see plenty of double-bogeys.
