Highland Pacific Recognized by Pacific Northwest Golfer Magazine
Par-4 fifth hole selected as one of the ‘Great Holes of the Northwest’
In the February 2019 issue of Pacific Northwest Golfer magazine, the par-4 fifth hole on the Highland nine at Highland Pacific GC in Victoria, B.C. is recognized as one of the “Great Holes of the Northwest,” one of just four holes selected each year by the Northwest’s largest and longest-running golf publication.
This short par-4, which sits near the top of the course and provides views of everything under the sky, gives you the chance to play nearly every club in your bag, and play it differently every time you play it. The landing area in the fairway is smooth and saddle-shaped, forgiving of most sins, except that of going too far. So maybe it’s a 3-wood or hybrid off the tee, leaving a short iron to an elevated green that overlooks water on the right and rock outcroppings on the left. It doesn’t look like it, from where you’re standing down in the fairway, but there is a lot of room to land your approach shot – the green is large, with some backstops to slow down anything that rolls long.
The Pacific Nine, with its vistas and rolling fairways, was opened in October 2008, and the Highland Nine opened June 2010. Total course length is 6,603 yards with six different sets of tee markers for all skill levels. Highland Pacific overlooks the majestic Olympic Mountains, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Thetis Lake Park. Visit www.HighlandPacificGolf.com for more information.
