Welcome to the 2nd hole at Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort, known as "The Quarry Course," located in Biwabik, Minnesota. This par 5 begins with a slight dogleg right and stretches out to a challenging distance of 575 yards from the Pro tees. With a handicap of 3, this is considered one of the more difficult holes on the course.

As you approach your tee shot, take note of the wide fairway that spans approximately 51 yards in width. The average golfer should aim for a drive around 217 yards to set up an ideal second shot. Keep in mind that due to its location in northern Minnesota, this course experiences different weather conditions throughout each season. In warmer months, expect higher altitude which may lead to longer ball flight distances while cooler temperatures may cause some loss of distance.

After your successful drive off the tee, you'll be faced with an approach shot towards a large green area measuring at over 21,000 square feet. While there are four bunkers scattered throughout this hole, only one greenside bunker accounts for just under 1% of total bunkers on this hole - making it less likely for your ball to land within them.

For most golfers approaching this green from about ~140 yards away (with their trusty seven iron), I recommend aiming slightly left as there is potential trouble lurking on the right side near water hazards and rough patches. If you find yourself closer than ~120 yards (using pitching wedge), consider playing safe by laying up short rather than taking unnecessary risks trying to reach this long green in two shots.

In conclusion, Hole #2 at The Quarry Course offers both beauty and difficulty with its natural landscape featuring stunning views overlooking old quarry pits filled with crystal clear water below. Play smart and strategic here by keeping control over your shots and avoiding any potential hazards along the way - good luck!
