Arm Golf & Country Club
Cut into the
rolling terrain of an evergreen forest, this track will call on
every shot in your bag and an ongoing debate between your brain
and your bravado. A perfect example of this battle is on the par
five 14th. A sharp dogleg to the right dares golfers to cut the
corner over the trees and play for the green in two. If you are
successful you will have a great shot at eagle, but few are successful.The
trees extend further out into the fairway than golfers generally
assume and most attempts to cut the corner result in a lost ball
and a lot of work left for bogie.
The smart strategy
is to hit an easy 225 yard shot up the middle to the turn. Play
an aggressive fairway wood for your next shot and let your short
game work its magic.
greens at Salmon Arm are receptive to high aggressive shots, so
donít be afraid to attack the pin.If the course gets the better
of you donít worry about it. Salmon Arm has a fantastic clubhouse
with a large deck over-looking two tees and two greens. You will
quickly spot others who can share your pain at the nineteenth hole.
