    Bethpage Black - Hole 4 - 517 yards

    This par 5 is possibly the best hole on the course in terms of beauty and strategy. Play it conservatively as a three-shotter or take the challenge and go for two. The green slopes front to back away from you, so be careful of approaches from the lower drive zone.

    Bethpage Black - Hole 7 - 525 yards

    Use long irons and hybrids for approach shots to this green that is closely guarded by a deep bunker on the front right. Achieving this par 4 will be an excellent accomplishment on one of the toughest holes on the front nine.

    Bethpage Black - Hole 15 - 458 yards

    The slight dogleg 15th is not the Black Course's longest par 4, but it will likely again be one of the toughest this weekend. Finding the fairway off the tee will be crucial to having a realistic chance to reach the green in regulation. The 15th putting green is without a doubt the most challenging with its severe slope from the back left to the front right.
