The par 3 No. 5 at Ladera Golf Course plays to 189 yards from tip to back of the green.
For the city championship flight the last two years the staff moved to a tee box on the executive course playing it at 225.
The green has a terrific slope characteristic, and has roughly six challenging pin positions. Missing left will leave an easier chip then missing right. The par 3s at Ladera are all challenging and hole No. 5, although seemingly simple, poses great challenges.
