Las Sendas Golf Club’s seventh hole is a scenic par three that plays between 121 yards (silver tees) and 98 yards (copper tees). It’s one of the easier holes on the course (17 handicap for both men and women) and responsible for the most aces at Las Sendas. But, don’t take this hole lightly—there are plenty of ways to miss par.

Tee Shot: Right vs. Left

Par three tee boxes can quickly fill up with divot holes, especially during peak golfing season. Hole seven at Las Sendas offers multiple tee boxes—some on the right, others on the left—and our grounds team regularly rotates play to allow the grass to properly “heal.”

Teeing off from the right set of tee boxes may seem more challenging due to the greenside bunker’s location. Missing short can lead to a difficult lie in the sand, but going left or too long could leave you in the penalty area.

For most golfers, a short wedge plays well off the seventh tee.

Two-Tiered Green

Hole seven’s two-tiered elevation is reminiscent of hole five’s green. However, the green on hole seven is slightly smaller and features a different angle from the tee box. The frontside of the green sits lower and rises toward the narrow end of the bunker.

Pin placement is a key consideration, as the hole plays more difficult when the cup is located on the backside side of the green.
