    HOLE PAR YARDS
    1 4 404 The course unfolds as the first hole begins with a wide landing area surrounded by grass mounds and OB on both sides making the fairway important to hit. As the player decides what to hit on the second shot depending upon the pin placement into a deep green - the Gary Player factor comes into play with a sand bunker just left of this green and drop off with grass mounds just right of this green making it a difficult up and down so hitting the green in regulation is key!
    2 4 378 "Wow!!" The look from the tee box is a forced carry over water that runs down the entire right side of the hole. Take on as much water as you like but you can leave yourself with a short wedge and a skip of a heart beat or go for the center of the fairway and leave yourself with a good angle for your second shot. This well secured complex hiding behind a deep front right bunker and a false front make this a must-hit green.
    3 5 607 This long demanding hole requires a good drive down the left side of the fairway allowing the player to choose the spot to either lay up to for a short wedge in. An aggressive player will have the opportunity to go for it in two if they strike it well. But if you decide to go for it in "2" - the distance on the second shot is not the only factor as this green is protected by a large sand trap just left of the green and water lurking behind.
    4 3 181 What you see is what you get as this great par 3 is straight forward. From the tee box it looks challenging - peninsula green over water - deep bunkers both short and back right side of the green. Seems like you must stick a dart but bailing out to the right is not easy either. Difficult up and down with a green sloped top to bottom and grain plays a huge factor on this hole.
    5 4 398 A short dogleg teaser - allows the golfer to choose what he wants to do off the tee, either play it safe on the right side of the fairway or take it down the left and leave a short wedge to an elevated green. Deep bunker short and water back left. But beware - just don't hit it too far left off the tee!
    6 3 176 Just yards off the pond - which runs the entire right side of this hole and a carry over a huge waste area along with prevailing winds are all key factors on this hole - all while making it a real challenge mentally off the tee as well. A giant circle green surrounded by Limestone rock and crushed sand make it critical to hit the green as missing is not an easy up and down.
    7 4 454 A very solid Par 4 which requires one to work it off the tee with the hole moving right to left. A dense thicket of trees left and OB right await an errant tee shot. But a solid tee shot will leave a straight on look to the large green with bunker protection on the right and back left. Don't be long as this green runs away front to back and going over means trouble.
    8 4 408 A sharp dog left around a large oak tree in the midst of a waste bunker frames the left side of the hole from the tee. The further out left on the fairway provides the best angle and shortest approach to the green but beware of the looming OB. The elevated green slopes top to bottom with bunkers placed well to protect pins demanding accuracy.
    9 4 442 A true monster of a par 4 teeing off from an elevated tee shot to a wide fairway. The right side has a preserve running down the length of this dogleg right hole requiring the player to place the ball on the left side of the angulated fairway to have a clear look at the green for their second shot. But it doesn't stop there. The mind boggle is not even over yet as a large green sloping top to bottom protected by a waterside bunker on the right commands respect.
    10 4 432 This staunch par 4 has a generous landing zone but plays predominantly into the wind and has a long, steep faced bunker running down the left side of the fairway. Bigger hitters can reach the back-slope of the bunker leaving only a wedge in hand but if not you could be looking at a longer approach in from the right side facing a two tier green that is tucked with deep bunkers protecting it on all sides.
    11 4 521 A straight-away Par 4 that is wide and generous and invites all to let the driver out of the bag. But - if you miss this fairway - the gnarly rough will snatch you up and make this a difficult approach. A preserve / hazard run the entire right side of the fairway from the landing area to the green. And this clover shaped green is three tiered with slope playing a major factor in certain pin placements making it somewhat difficult to get close or hold for the approach shot in.
    12 3 144 Lights - Camera - Action. This Par 3 is a demanding hole from an elevated tee shot to a green over hanging the water outlined in native Florida limestone rock. The view from the tee is spectacular (even better looking back from the green to the tee box) but it requires a well struck tee ball because there's no guaranteed 3 if you miss the green as there is no easy up and down.
    13 4 350 This relative short par 4 gives the player plenty of space off the tee and the choice of a risk / reward tee shot. Take dead aim at the green with a Driver down the left side of the fairway or take the more conventional route using a Hybrid or long iron off the tee and hit it down the right side leaving a mid to short iron in. This well protected green has two levels splitting it and a deep bunker center front. The green and pin placements are the equalizing factors on this hole which plays harder than it looks!
    14 4 408 A great traditional Par 4. Carved around a pond which runs along the entire left side of the hole - tee to green, along with a tight fairway slightly curving right to left. Most players will aim to the right side of the fairway and have a nice angle approach into a large, well bunkered green that has subtle, yet devious movement to it.
    15 4 382 Visually demanding off the tee, this par 4 gives you a waste area framing the right side and a preserve / hazard running the entire left side. Tee ball accuracy is key. The second shot is usually a wedge to a mid-iron into a green protected by bunkers both right and rear and demands that you hit the right yardage in.
    16 3 195 You can stare this Par 3 down from the tee as you look at a green with protection on both sides outlined by large bunkers. The only bail out is short but that leaves no guarantee of an easy 3 on this sloping, deep green.
    17 5 527 This "S" shaped Par 5 gives you ample space off the tee; however don't be left or right. Hit it with a slight draw "right down Main St." and you may be green-lighted to go at in 2...if not, the layup shot is very simple - pick your number and go - but the approach shot is very difficult given the contour of this green and the protection that surrounds it.
    18 4 436 One of the best - if not the best - finishing holes in Naples. This par four is both beautiful & demanding tee to green. Hitting the fairway is crucial with water left and a huge bunker running down the right side of the fairway. The approach shot is uphill and over water to a shallow, kidney shaped green secured by bunkers on each side on the green. Don't let the beauty trick you!
