The first hole is a long Par 5 straightaway with a few different elevations on the fairway. It looks easy enough but carries the #3 handicap rated hole on the golf course. Especially tough is the 3rd shot, which usually for the average golfer is an 80 to 120 yard approach shot. You are hitting to a very long, narrow green that slopes from right to left. The right side of the green is guarded by a series of three bunkers and water runs the entire length of the left side of the green. A left pin placement on this hole makes for quite a brave shot after just coming out of the gate. If you decide to play safe and put your approach shot right of the pin, you now face a down hill putt on some of the fastest greens in the state with an average of 10 to 11 on the simpmeter.
The second hole is a short par 4 with your drive carrying over a small area of water just in front of the tee box which can catch a low miss hit drive. A good drive on this hole leaves the average golfer a 100 to 120 yard approach shot to a well-bunkered green. It looks pretty simple but distance is a consideration because anything pin high or above the pin can produce a 3 putt in a hurry.
This is a good par 3 playing 179 yards from the white tees. A big green with bunkers right, left, front and back make for a very tough up and down. Distance again is the key much like hole 2. Anything past the pin here is a disaster.
This 378 yard slight dogleg right plays a little on the short side because of the elevated tee box. Long hitters beware because the pond down the left center of the fairway is reachable at 275 yards off the white tees. The average player's second shot here is usually 140 to 150 yards to an elevated green with water in front and bunkers on the right. This flat green is a pleasure to see after just coming off the #2 and #3 greens.
One of the best par 4's on the golf course. This dog left left is 376 yards but plays much longer because of the pond that runs down the left side from tee to green. The average golfer usually has from 150 to 170 yards left for their second shot to a very wide but shallow green that again is well bunkered. Pin placements can make putting difficult on this green.
A par 5 dogleft left. Two fairway bunkers await the average golfer trying to cut the dogleg on this hole. Another fairway bunker is placed out 40 yards farther for those greedy long knockers. The second shot on this 500 yard par 5 is usually 250 to 275 yards out but it's no simple second shot. There is a cluster of fairway bunkers approximately 100 to 125 yards short of the green down the right side of the fairway. Fairway wood shots must be positioned down the left side of the fairway to leave a 50 to 60 yard wedge shot in. The green is very large with some real slippery pin placements. Again, a well bunkered green.
This 371 yard dogleg left is another tricky little hole. The perfect tee shot in a slight draw from the fairway bunker facing the tee box approximately 270 yards down the middle of the fairway. The big hitters can take it over the two elevated fairway bunkers guarding the left side of the dogleg. Your second shot is downhill to a slightly elevated green with bunkers left, right, and to the rear of the green, making for a very accurate approach shot. If the pin is located in the back middle of the green you could be in trouble.
This 338 yard sharp dogleg right usually plays down wind, which makes it even shorter. The entire right side is bordered by out of bounds stakes with large grass mounds protecting the left side of the landing area. There are two ways to play this hole for the average golfer. A long iron or 3 wood straight down the fairway will leave you an approach shot of 100 or 120 yards. The green is elevated about 15 feet high with deep bunkers surrounding the front and left sides. A shallow bunker protects the middle to right side of the green for any errant long approach shots. The second way to play this hole is limited to the player who can hit it 250 yards or more. Just aim your tee shot at the front left side bunker. This line takes you right over the out of bounds area and a 250 yard shot leaves you a 70 yard pitch shot into the green. The green slips from back to front and into the center from left to right and right to left. This makes for some nice kicks toward the middle of the green on your approaches but leaves you with some interesting putts.
A par 3 that plays 156 yards from the white markers. This is one of the best par 3s on the course. Straight away tee shot from an elevated tee to an elevated green that is very narrow and deep, and shaped like an hourglass. There are bunkers left and right of the green and one on the front right. This is one of the hardest up and downs on the course if you miss the green.
A 494 dogleg right with a very deep fairway bunker at the corner of the dogleg. From the white tees you must be able to carry your drive 220 in the air. If you can't carry 220 yards, the middle of the fairway is the way to go. A good drive of 240 yards down the middle will leave you a 254 yard second shot into a 25 foot very narrow long elevated green. 80 yards short of the green are two more elevated fairway bunkers right in the center of the fairway. Whether you lay up or play to the fairway to the left of the bunkers you are left with a wedge shot into a very narrow fast green. The slope of the green is from front to back and anything past the pin makes for a delicate putt downhill.
This is a great par 4 at 388 yards from the white tees. The drive is straight away but two elevated bunkers on the right and one elevated bunker on the left guard the landing area. A 250 yard drive puts you right in between these fairway bunkers, leaving you 133 yards into an elevated green. The green is guarded by bunkers front, right, and left. The slope of the green runs from back to front and left to right. Even with two good golf shots, par or birdie depends on ball position on the green. Short left of the pin leaves you an uphill putt.
A great dogleg right par 4. Although it shows only 378 yards from the white tee, this hole is a sleeper that can get your attention real fast. Two fairway bunkers are located in the middle of the fairway at the dogleg. The prudent tee shot is down the left center of the fairway playing away from the green but also away from the bunkers. If you want to cut the corner, the line you need to take is directly at the center of the green. You must carry the ball 250 yards to clear the out of bounds markers. From there you have 75 yards or less to an elevated green with bunkers front, left and right. The green slopes from front to back and left to right.
This 141 yard par 3 is our signature hole with a large pond guarding the front and entire right side of the green and a deep bunker guards the left side of the green. The green is only 10 yards deep over the left bunker with a back bunker waiting for any approach shot that carries long. A back right pin makes the hole play 15 yards longer. The green slopes severely from left to right although the left side of the green behind the bunker is fairly level.
A 518 yard straight away par 5 with fairway bunkers on the left side about 243 yards out. A very large gully is located to the right of pine trees on the right side of the fairway. The green is elevated only about 8 feet high with bunkers front, left, and right. A front pin placement on this green can make for a tricky putt.
This par 3 boasts a lot of yardage with very little green depth wise. 191 yards of carry to a green that is only 17 yards deep. No bunkers in front but a steady slope up hill to the green stops most balls from rolling on. One long narrow bunker behind the green collects most of the long approach shots. You must hit it high to hold this green. A par 3 here feels as good as birdie.
This shot straight away par 4 plays 346 from the white tees with bunkers down the left side. The first bunker starts at 205 yards out with the second one needing a 260 yard tee shot to carry. A large gully runs down the entire right side. Accuracy is the key here and anything in the fairway will leave you a simple shot into a well bunkered but large green.
This is a short par 4 at 347 yards but don't let that yardage fool you on this hole. The tee shot is over a large pond to a fairway protected by water down the entire right side. Out of bounds runs down the entire left side. A sraight drive down the right center is the best play as long as it stays under 275 yards; otherwise you are in the lake that guards the front right of the green. This lake wraps around the entire right side of the green with bunkers guarding the left side of the green. This green is an extremely long and narrow green. A back right pin placement here separates the men from the boys on a great hole at a key point in the round.
A 398 par 4 uphill to an elevated green. The fairway is guarded by bunkers starting down the right side 210 yards out and down the left side 245 yards out. The second shot calls for an uphill mid iron to an elevated and well bunkered green. An excellent finishing hole from all the white markers, 441 from the blue tees.
