1st Hole - Par 4

Starting your round with a 420 yard par 4, with the wind blowing in your face, isn't the easiest starting hole in the world, but its all that we know.

2nd Hole - Par 4

At a manageable 349 yards, hole 2 presents an early scoring opportunity. Usually played into the wind, number two can typically be hit with a short-to-medium iron following a good drive.

3rd Hole - Par 4

No, it isn't Amen Corner, Hole 3 is the start of Kindergarten Corner here at BGC. As Jon Rant will tell you, a par at times could even feel like a bogey.

4th Hole - Par 3

182 yards from the back tees; pretty straight forward par 3, right? Well don't say that to the homeowners on the left. That out of bounds creeps in rather quickly!

5th Hole - Par 4

Look out for a new teeing area on this hole this season; we've combined the three small tee boxes to make one, giant area. Just like last year and the 4th tee box, we're hoping to open this tee sometime around Memorial Day weekend.

6th Hole - Par 4

A straight drive that can split the bunkers will make this hole easier, whereas a ball that finds one of the two sand traps will rarely result in a par.

7th Hole - Par 4

Hope you made your birdies and pars leading already because the golf course starts now. The cell tower is a natural target on this hole, which should help you find this narrow green.

8th Hole - Par 4/5

The number 1 handicap hole on the golf course; the 8th hole is no joke.
450 Yards? Check Dogleg? Check Well bunkered? Check 2 Tier Green? Check. Tie your shoes a little tighter and hope that this hole is playing downwind when you step on the tee.

9th Hole - Par 4

"Don't. Go. Left..." is the thought by many when you step on the 9th tee. Anything left of the fairway will need a good prayer to stay in bounds. 2 good shots though, and you have a look at birdie. A great finishing hole to the outward 9.

10th Hole - Par 3

The 10th at Bellport Golf Club is our version of the short par 3. Club selection is key as short, and your ball is in Howell's Creek, while long and you're in the hedges and out of bounds.

11th Hole - Par 4

August 14th, 2011. Bill Hunter made a 4 for Par. Brit Lawlor makes a 3 for Birdie. Lee Stocker makes a 2 for an Eagle. Mike Aronsen makes a Hole in One. The group recorded a total score of 10. An extremely rare feat that may never be tied, let alone broken. Well done fellas.

12th Hole - Par 3

Hole 12; definitely the hardest par 3 on the course. Ask around and a lot of people will say that this is the hardest hole on the entire course. Dead into the wind. Uphill. Over water. Huge false front. Reeds looming. Deep bunkers surrounding the red angreen. Yikes. A hole that nightmares are made of.

13th Hole - Par 5

The first par 5 of the course; 521 yards, generally into the wind with water looming down the left hand side. Birdies and Eagles can be found on this hole at well as Double and Triple bogeys.

14th Hole - Par 3

The wind should be opposite of the 12th hole by the time you get here but a back right pin will make this hole seem impossible. The deep bunker short and right of the green seems to swallow up any ball that is moving left to right. All in all, another solid Par 3.

15th Hole - Par 4

The 15th hole gives you a spectacular view of the Great South Bay. A morning round could have the bay looking like glass or you could even find some paddle boarders. Once the afternoon winds pick up, you could find yourself aiming some 20+ yards over the bay, hoping the wind blows it near the pin.

16th Hole - Par 5

You're a long way from home once you step on the 16th tee box. 560 yards separate you from the next tee box, but if the wind is in your face it might feel like 600 yards. Even when downwind, the hole is a beast.

17th Hole - Par 4

The 17th here at BGC is a signature Seth Raynor design. The mounding on this hole can be found throughout the world on other Seth Raynor designs. Deep bunkers surround the very large and firm putting surface.

18th Hole - Par 5

520 Yards until you're home. The 18th hole is a classic risk/reward hole. If you bomb a drive and hit a great 2nd shot, you'll find yourself with an eagle putt; that is as long as that 2nd shot doesn't end up in the pond, short and left of the green. After finishing your round, head on in to Peter's on the Green to grab a cold beverage, a bite to eat and share stories and laughs.
