Travis Pointe CC Video Tour – LPGA Volvik Host Site

travis pointe-6575

I have collected the photos that I took on my recent round at Travis Pointe into a video montage. You can watch it below.  Travis Pointe is the host of the LPGA Volvik Championship, which will tee off for its inaugural playing May 23 – 29, 2016. The course, designed in 1977 by William Newcomb, features wide fairways, open fronts on the greens, 83 bunkers and 15 water hazards.

Newcomb says that Travis Pointe  “gives a comfortable look off the tee, but is challenging on the green.”

 

Travis Pointe measures 7,326 from the back tees, with a rating and slope of 76/139. At 6,545 yards — which the LPGA players most likely will face — the course is a 71.9/131.

The average green size is 6,500 square feet. For the tournament, the rough will be at 6 inches and the stimp 11.5 to 12, with the exception of two holes: the 13th and 15th, where the severity of the greens require a slightly slower pace.

For photos of individual holes, along with yardages, see this previous post on Travis Pointe.
