600+ YARD PLUS CLUB
Last week, we listed three courses that had 600+ yard holes; the Treetops 10th hole at 610 yards, Lapeer County's Sugar Bush with a par 5, 13th hole at 646 yards and Brae Burn, also has a par 5, 13th hole that comes in at 617 yards. We received the following feedback.
Hidden River in Brutus #7 is 636 from the tips.

We have our own monster at Hidden River Golf and Casting Club. #7, par 5 is 636 yards from the black tees and even has been stretched out to 655 yards for our tough man. For the record, no one has hit the green in two, and I have a standing bet with our golf course architect that no one will. Bruce Matthews III still believes someone will get home in two. My close friend Kevin Vandenberg has tried several times to reach #7 in two, but always comes up short, (and you know how far he can hit it!!).
In our first four years, no one has finished even par from the tips. The course record still stands at 73.
