Hole 9 – Par-4, 380 Yards
Innsbruck Resort & Golf Club, Helen, Georgia

Laid out by Bill Watts, the golf course at Innsbruck in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northeast Georgia opened in 1987. The town of Helen is a replica of the retreats often found in the Alps of southern Germany and the scenery surrounding the course is appropriately atmospheric and colorful. The line off the tee at the par-4 9th is Mount Yonah, the scenic centerpiece of Chattahoochee National Forest in the middle distance.

The ideal landing area is either the center or left half of the fairway in order to keep the pond that encroaches from the right out of play. From the fairway, it’s important to check the wind and your yardage because approaches to a shallow green need to be precise. If you miss, then you must miss to the right because a sizeable lake comes into play on the left. The green is also protected by a wide bunker front-left and is overlooked #6 by a delightful Bavarian-style clubhouse.
