Hole #10, Par 4, 303 yards - Big hitters will be tempted to go for the green on this short par 4. With trouble surrounding the green, a mid iron tee shot to the elevated, severely sloping green may bring the best chance for birdie.
  Hole #11, Par 4, 317 yards - A downhill tee shot makes this short par 4 play even shorter. A decent drive leaves you with a short-iron approach to a flat green, protected in front by bunkers; one of the best chances for birdie on the back nine.

  Hole #12, Par 4, 392 yards - This rolling par 4 offers many options for your drive. A long iron tee shot leaves you a mid-iron approach to a tight green - teeing off with a driver may leave you with a tough downhill stance on your approach.
Hole #13, Par 3, 171 yards - This first par 3 on the back has a large green, protected by a series of bunkers. The forgiving green rewards a solid tee shot with a decent birdie opportunity.
Hole #14, Par 5, 535 yards - The par 5 fourteenth starts with a blind tee shot to a medium sized landing area. Then you can choose to go for it over a huge dip, or lay up into the bottom of the dip and hit back up hill to the green.
Hole #15, Par 4, 330 yards - This medium length par 4 is uphill from tee to green. A bunker in the middle of the fairway makes a well placed tee shot essential to making a birdie on the fifteenth.
Hole #16, Par 3, 156 yards - The final par 3 at Marywood is perfect for a solid mid-iron tee shot, with trouble to the left, the right, and long. A rolling green makes birdie difficult from a long putt on this hole.
Hole #17, Par 4, 372 yards - The seventeenth is a downhill par 4 with trouble on the right. A solid drive gives you a short iron approach to an elevated, steeply sloping green. Par is an excellent score here.
Hole #18, Par 5, 533 yards - Only the biggest hitters can reach this long, dogleg right, par 5 in two. A solid long iron lay-up will bring most golfers into perfect position for a short iron approach to this elevated green. The eighteenth is a monster of a finishing hole.
