|From an elevated tee, avoid two fairway bunkers 150 yards from the green. The second shot can be tricky with four bunkers and a swale surrounding this shallow, undulating green.|
What is a swale?
Well it turned out to be a grass bunker. Earlier, hole 5 (Quail's Trail), had grass bunkers and they called them grass bunkers:
|This testy par 3 requires a high tee shot to a green surrounded on all sides by grass bunkers. This green is deceivingly contoured. Par is a very good score.|
So why call it a swale when it's a grass bunker?
I've never understood golf. If'n you want to put that ball into the hole why not just pick it up and *put* it in the hole!!!!
In order to add multiple levels of frustration to the task.
If your life is a bed of roses then you need something to balance it at the other extreme. Golf is that humbling exercise.
call them swales cos golf is a game played by swankers.
