Hole #1 Par 4
A tricky first hole with out of bounds along the right side and an approach shot that plays longer due to elevation and wind conditions.
Hole #2 Par 4
The key to this hole is keeping your tee shot in play. The ideal tee shot is a 210 carry from the back tee leaving plenty of room to play around the tree protecting the green
Hole #3 Par 4
This is the longest par four on the golf course and the hole is uphill. Your tee shot should be aimed at the flagpole which will open up your approach to a well guarded two tiered green.
Hole #4 Par 3
Although you are teeing off from an elevated tee the wind is always a factor make sure you take plenty of club.
Hole #5 Par 4
A blind tee shot with fescue trouble on the right side and fescue trouble left of center. Your target line is just right of the tree that appears to be in the middle.
Hole #6 Par 4
A relatively easy tee shot but don't be fooled this hole will give you fits if you are not careful. The green is large and slopes from right to left. Birdies are rare because you will not find a flat surface on this green
Hole #7 Par 4
The toughest hole on the front side with water along the rights side. A good tee shot flirts with the tree line and the 8th green. The green is two tiered sloping from left to right and you never want to be above the pin or right of it.
Hole #8 Par 3
Pay attention to the tee to green alignment. Many golfers miss this green because they set up well left of their intended starting point.
Hole #9 Par 4
A blind tee shot with lost ball trouble along the entire right side. The green is flat and you can end your front nine on a positive note just be sure to miss your tee shot to the left.
Hole #10 Par 4
A tee shot that requires your attention anything right of the fairway has the potential of being a lost ball. The second shot is severely uphill with a punishing bunker. Be sure to hit enough club and don't forget to calculate the wind conditions
Hole #11 Par 5
One of only two par five you will face today. The green is the smallest one on the golf course so you want to leave your third shot at a distance you are very comfortable with. Extra Hint: The rough is very thick so a third shot from the fairway or the left rough is much easier then the right rough.
Hole #12 Par 4
This is the most demanding tree-lined hole on the golf course. Accuracy off the tee is a start but your 2nd shot also requires your full attention. Any miss hit to the right on your second shot could become a lost ball. In other words you may want to consider a safety play for your second shot.
Hole #13 Par 3
This hole gives up more birdies than any other hole but don't let the yardage fool you. The pin placements can give you fits. If the pin is on the far right corner you can putt your ball off the green.
Hole #14 Par 3
A blind tee shot with your approach to the green much easier from the right side. This green slopes to the left and falls off very quickly. Your shot should be to the right of the flag.
Hole #15 Par 3
A surprisingly large elevated green with a tree guarding the left side. Be sure to hit it low as the wind is always a factor.
Hole #16 Par 4
Completely redesigned with a wider playing zone. A 220 yard shot will get you to the crest of the fairway. The green is a severely sloped two tiered green and going above the pin is often a very costly mistake.
Hole #17 Par 4
The goal on this hole is to keep your tee shot in play. The smart play is a 200 yard tee shot. If you are a strong hitter try you can try and drive the green but be careful the fescue on the left side and the trees on the right side can ruin your back nine.
Hole #18 Par 5
Our finishing hole requires a tee shot along the left side in fact the entire right side of this hole is a lost ball just waiting to be lost.
