||The first hole is a straightforward and short par 4 measuring 407
yards from the Championship tees. Water runs down the left side of
the hole and a creek protects the front of the green. The player's
best choice is to play the tee shot with a fairway wood down the
right center of the fairway, leaving a short iron to the middle of
||The second hole plays as a par 5 for the membership but will be
played as a long dogleg right par 4 measuring 509 yards. The hole
plays a little uphill, and is protected on the right hand side by a
mound and a series of strategically placed bunkers. A cross bunker
protects the right side of the fairway in the lay-up zone.
Greenside bunkers protect the top left tier, and front right edge
of this three-tiered green. A ball on the wrong tier makes a
two-putt rather demanding.
||The third hole is a challenging 416-yard par 4 from the
Championship tees. The ideal tee shot is to the left center of the
fairway, coming to rest on the flat top of the fairway just before
the fairway slopes severely down into a swale. The approach should
be anywhere from 180 yards down to 150 yards to the green. The
green is three-tiered with the middle right tier lower than the
front and upper tiers.
||This downhill par 3 is the easiest hole on the golf course. It
plays 163 yards from the Championship tees. The green is protected
with bunkers on the front right and front left edges and a back
bunker to capture shots hit too far. This hole should provide the
player with a good scoring opportunity.
||This challenging par 4 measures 461 yards from the Championship
tees. The landing area in the fairway is quite generous, but if you
hit your tee ball to the left, you may find yourself in the fairway
bunker looking at a difficult approach shot. Tee balls played down
the right side will require you to carry a pond that protects the
green on the right side. This green is also well-protected with
bunkers toward the back left.
||This short par 5 is 537 yards from the Championship tees and can be
reached in two, provided the player's tee shot finds the fairway.
The approach shot is to an elevated green, which is guarded by one
very deep bunker on the front right of the green, and smaller
bunkers to the left and the rear of the green. Those players who do
not reach this green in two must carry a creek that crosses the
fairway at about 150 yards from the green. This may leave their
lay-up shot with the ball below their feet, hitting still to an
elevated green. Once the player reaches the green, the job is not
done. This green is split into three different levels, and it can
be very difficult to judge the correct speed when having to putt
from one level to the next.
||This par 4 measures 455 yards from the Championship tees. Even
without any sand bunkers, this is a very difficult hole requiring
an accurate tee shot, but also correct distance. There is a pond
down the right-hand side of the fairway that is equal to the
landing area. Out-of-bounds markers and a lateral water hazard run
down the left-hand side of the fairway. A good tee shot will leave
the player about 160 yards from the green. The player then must
carry a creek fronting a green that is subtly undulating.
||This hole plays 215 yards from the Championship tees and features a
lateral water hazard that runs down the left side of the hole. The
narrowly framed green is well-bunkered on the left.
||From the Championship tee, the par 4 ninth measures 456 yards. It
calls for a tee shot placed in the right side of the fairway, yet
avoiding the fairway bunker which guards this side. A medium iron
approach must avoid the two bunkers surrounding the green and must
come to rest on the correct tier of the green. The tiered green
puts a premium on being on the proper level.
||Number ten is an uphill deceptively long dogleg left par 4 hole
playing 428 yards from the Championship tees. A good drive will
avoid the bunker on the left side of the fairway and leave a short
iron for the approach shot to a two-tiered green that is protected
by bunkers on the front right and back left.
||Number eleven is a short hole playing 388 yards from the
Championship tees. Big hitters may wish to attack this hole by
hitting their tee shot over the tall pine trees guarding the corner
on this dogleg right par 4 but many will find laying-up to the
corner a better play. A lay-up will leave a short iron into a green
that is blind from the fairway and guarded by a series of bunkers
up-front. The green is fairly generous, but runs away from the
||This par 5 is the longest hole on the course, measuring 579 yards
from the Championship tees. The tee shot must be played down the
left side of the fairway, due to the slope from left to right. The
approach shot can be tricky. The closer you get to the green, the
more of a downhill slope you may find. Laying back to approximately
150 yards will leave you with a flat lie at the top of the hill,
but this can be rather difficult with the green severely below the
player and protected by a pond on the left. This green is long and
narrow hugging the water left, consisting of two tiers running
through the middle of the green.
||This is a great par 4 that plays from left to right 434 yards from
the Championship tees. The tee shot needs to favor the left side of
the fairway to stay out of the creek that runs from the left of the
green, parallels the fairway near the landing area, and turns to
the right into the woods. Approaching the green from the left side
of the fairview provides the player with the best angle to this
two-tiered green. Again, putting on this hole can be rather
challenging when going from one tier to the next.
||This par 3 hole plays 177 yards from the Championship tees. This
tee shot is slightly uphill with bunkers protecting the green on
the front left and back center. The distinctive tiering of this
green places a premium on the accurate tee ball.
||This is the beginning of four strong finishing holes. Number
fifteen plays downhill 440 yards from the Championship tees and is
a dogleg left with a pond that is reachable from the tee but blind.
A bunker sits to the right of the fairway to help frame the hole
for your tee shot. The second shot is very difficult due to the
golf ball hanging above your feet as you're trying to approach a
green protected by two bunkers on the left.
||This difficult par 4 measures 460 yards from the Championship tees.
The tee shot must be struck solidly and preferably with a draw to
get into position for the uphill approach shot to this
well-bunkered green. Two shelves of five bunkers provide
significant protection to this elevated green.
||This challenging downhill par 3 plays 230 yards from the
Championship tees into the prevailing breeze. The tee shot requires
a long iron or fairway wood to a green guarded by bunkers front
right and back left. The green complex is undulating and
challenging, comprised of two distinct tiers running horizontally
across the green.
||This is a great risk/reward hole--a par 5 that measures 548 yards
from the Championship tees. If the tee shot is played down the
right side of the fairway and avoids the well-placed bunker and the
water, the player is presented with a reasonable opportunity to
approach the green over a large pond in two. Otherwise, the smart
play is to lay-up to about 100 yards to 125 yards, leaving a wedge
or sand wedge to a large, undulating green with three tiers. Back
pins are especially difficult as the third tier runs away from the
