This par 4 is a difficult starting hole offering a dogleg right tee shot matched with a downhill landing zone and a second shot over water. Longer hitters typically hit 3 wood off the tee. The large green slopes towards the water on the front and away from the water on the back which demands a safe shot at the center of the green.
Hole 2:A short par 4 with a dogleg left that plays to an elevated green. It is critical to be accurate off the tee (ideally with a draw up the right side of the fairway) due to the penalty area on the left and OB on the right. If you don’t have a clean look at the green, you may be forced to layup because of the creek lying just before the approach of the green.
Hole 3:This long par 5 is the number one handicap hole on the course for a reason. With a narrow fairway that snakes up to a protected green, there is no reason to get aggressive off the tee, as most players are unable to reach the green in two shots regardless.
Hole 4:With a tee shot over water and a green protected by an oak tree on the left and two bunkers on the right, the 17th hardest hole on the course can play trickier than it may seem. The tee box is shielded by trees so the wind might play a bigger role than the player is able to detect.
Hole 5:This reachable par 5 lends itself to a birdie, and potentially an eagle, if the player manages to hit the fairway – the ideal shot is a draw up the right center of the fairway to avoid the woods on the right and the big oak protecting the left. This green is well guarded with three sand traps and an elevated green that slopes from back to front.
Hole 6:One of the hardest tee shots on the course, this hole plays favorite to a fade. There are woods on both sides and a large oak that protrudes the right fairway. Longer hitters can manage a high fade over the tree, leaving the player a wedge or short iron in. The green slopes from back to front, with exception to the back edge. Players will want to land short of the pin for an uphill putt and ensure they don’t roll off the back of the green for a tough recovery shot.
Hole 7:The longest par 3 on the course plays around 211 yards from the tips. If the pin is in the back right, players will have a tough shot over the large bunker protecting that side, along with a landing zone that slopes towards the back. This green is one of the more difficult to read, as it undulates throughout each section.
Hole 8:A longish par 4 with a dogleg right that is protected by trees on the right edge of the fairway. The tee shot entices you to try to carry the trees (which is possible for the longer hitters), but the safer shot is a fade that sits to the left of the trees. This narrow green slopes from left to right with bunkers defending the left side.
Hole 9:This straightforward hole plays as the 11th hardest on the course. Players have an uphill tee shot with woods on the right and a large fairway bunker on the left. The green slopes from back to front and is protected by a sand trap on the right. Players will want to land the ball short of the hole to avoid a fast, downhill putt; conversely, if the players approach shot lands on the front third, the false front may guide his or her ball off the green.
Hole 10:Although relatively short, this par 4 plays much harder than it appears and will test the player on their approach shot. The green funnels towards the center with a slight tilt from right to left and is surrounded by five bunkers — proper club selection is essential.
Hole 11:This par 3 is the easiest rated hole on the course but still plays around 200 yards from the tips. With one large sand trap on the left and two smaller on the right, players will want to play towards the center of the green that has a very manageable read.
Hole 12:A long par 5 with a slight dogleg from left to right and trees down the right edge of the fairway. Longer hitters can carry the trees, but too aggressive of a tee shot isn’t necessary here as playing a fade falling left of the trees gives you a great second look (and perhaps still a chance to make it in two). Majority of players will elect to layup their second shot because of the pond that lays just 40 yards from a green that slopes from back to front and has two bunkers protecting the right side.
Hole 13:This long par 3 is the hardest out of the four. The tee shot plays to a large, elevated green protected by two bunkers on the right and one back left. If the flag is in the front, players will want to club themselves to carry that distance and further to avoid the false front and soft collar.
Hole 14:A well-placed drive up the right center of the fairway allows players to reach this par 5 in two. The downhill approach shot is best played with a draw to avoid the large oak blocking the left portion of the horizontal green – the front bunker isn’t a bad miss here either.
Hole 15:A dogleg left par 4 that demands an accurate tee shot. Longer hitters can cut the corner to leave the player with just a wedge in; however, the risk/reward may not prove worth it when trying to scale the trees on the left, especially considering an easy 3 wood in the fairway should prove satisfactory.
Hole 16:A wonderful short par 4 that requests that the driver remains in the bag. The optimal tee shot lands in the left center of the fairway to escape the pines and the oak tree on the right that would impede your second shot. The large green slopes from back to front and offers a simple second shot and a good chance for birdie.
Hole 17:A beautiful par 4 the bends to the left with penalty areas running the length of the fairway on both sides. Players should aim for the right center of the fairway in order to have a clean look at the green without having to go over the left greenside bunkers. It is critical for players to keep the ball below the hole on this elevated green that slopes from back to front to ensure you have an uphill putt.
