2. Metropolis Country Club, White Plains
Hole 10 • 453 yards • Par 4
Many holes at Metropolis are protected by trees, but few as solidly as the 10th. The hole is a downhill dogleg right that appears to set up for a fade off the tee. It better be a long, long fade, however, since anything right and shorter than 250 yards off the tee will end up without even a view of the green, much less a shot at it. Anything much shorter — even if it’s in the middle of the fairway — probably won’t offer a clear shot around the trees guarding the dogleg.
Whether it’s your second or third shot into the green, play it to the right side and consider bouncing it on. The green slopes from front to back so it’s easy to end up in the rough beyond.
