This pair of nines, at par 72 and 6493 yards from the middle tees, is considered the most difficult at Countryside. Its elevated greens sit at the end of well-trapped fairways. But there is room for tee shots to land, due to the generous width of the fairways. The Countryside Country Club golf course relies on lateral hazards, some length (6815 yards from the back) and smallish greens to frustrate golfers. It's a solid test of your game. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
At par 72 and 6,378 yards from the middle tees, this course is ever so slightly easier than the other available combinations at Countryside. It's a bit shorter and actually only plays less formidably from the middle tees while the back tees are a test at 6,700 yards. Elevated greens, lateral hazards and fairway traps conspire to boost your score. The fairways are wide, so tee shots aren't much of a headache. The Countryside Country Club-Pine/Bayhead course is usually in very good shape. This is a private golf course. Only soft spikes are allowed.

None of the par-5s reach 500 yards in length, and only one of the par-3s is anywhere near 200 yards long. Many of the par-4s are just over 300 yards from the blue tees.
