Referring to the blue tees..
I think the only holes where going over of the pond is necessary is on holes 1, 3, 17, and maybe hole 2, depending on how high the water is and shot choice.
The first hole plays about 300 ft. It looks like about a 225 ft shot will at least get your across the pond.
On the 3rd hole, the pond comes into play on pretty much every shot. There's also 2 shots were you almost have to go over the pond, the drive being one of them. A short drive will get over the pond, but it will probably be difficult to get over the pond on the second shot. About 275-325 ft drive down the fairway is ideal. I think that hole plays to about 450 ft. Players who can launch over 400 ft may actually be able to reach the part of the pond that is short of the basket.
Hole 17 plays about 220 to the basket, and there is space before and behind the basket to land. The map may be a little deceiving for that hole. Note that there is a maintenance road not far beyond the basket which is OB.
Seventeen is an interesting hole for coming down the stretch. A deuce could potentially clinch a match, but a circle 4 can also potentially lose a match. If you throw into the lake off the drive, I think the red tee box (or somewhere around the red tee box) is a drop zone.
Hope this helps!
