Varsity golf semifinals tee off at Marine Park Golf Club

October 26, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Tottenville advanced to the girls' varsity golf finals on Monday afternoon with a 3-0 win over Cardozo.

Marine Park features a long, straight par-five on the first hole, a back-to-front sloped green on the second hole and a long par-four on the dogleg right third. A trio of bunkers guard the green on the short 264-yard par four fourth while views of the Empire State Building greet golfers teeing off on the fifth, a 123-yard par three hole from the red tee. 

A grip it and rip it drive from the tee on six is the best way to save par on that 341-yard par four, but more guile and tact is needed on the seventh, which features a narrow fairway and an uphill green. The par three eighth runs along the bank of the water hazard, while the ninth sees golfers hitting over the lake to hit the green in regulation.

This semifinal was played over nine holes.

Here are some photos from the contest, taken with either the 300mm 2.8, 70-200mm 2.8 or 50mm 1.4.
