It is unlikely that golfers will lose a dozen golf balls on Edgebrook Golf Course’s, 12th hole because of the fairway’s, somewhat wide width. (Believe it or not, golfers lose golf balls in the middle of some Chicago-land fairways because of drainage ditches, small sinkholes, active gophers and abnormally high grass.) However, at Edgebrook Golf Course’s, 12th hole, the lost ball gremlin will usually appear in the rough areas due to golfers’, extreme, hook shots and extreme slice shots. (Edgebrook Golf Course is at 6100 N. Central Avenue in Chicago, Ill.)
This hole’s, average distance to the putting green from the rear, blue teeing ground is 262 yards—par four. This golf course only has one teeing ground—blue, and the teeing grounds are fiber mats on concrete. This hole has a #9, course hole handicap.
Many, amateur golfers can fly their golf balls 250 yards, and then roll them 2 yards onto this putting green so that they have two putts to score par, two putts to score birdie. To do this, more than 90% of the time, golfers will need to drive with their drivers. (This does not infer that motorized golf carts have two steering wheels.)
This fairway points northeast. It is straight, mostly level, and has only a small amount of trees on both sides. It lacks and sand bunkers or water hazards.
The putting green has the same level that the fairway has. It has an oval shape and is slightly large. This green’s slopes are only moderately difficult.
