Featured Hole: 7th (381 yards, par 4)
Nicknamed “Tom’s Thumb” in reference to PGA TOUR player and course consultant Tom Lehman, the 7th hole at TPC Twin Cities truly is a thing of beauty. Driving the green on this hole might be doable from the member’s tees, but the 3M Open tee puts the green out of range. A conservative tee shot will see you hit a well-placed iron or wood into the fairway, leaving you about 100 yards into the two-tiered green.
