Hole Description

Hole01
New tee makes this elevated tee shot move from right to left, long hitters can get past new fairway bunker on right center of fairway of this par four.
Hole02
Reachable par five for longer hitters by staying left of fairway bunker but a blind left to right uphill tee shot makes that more difficult. Double greenside bunkers guard the green making a right to left second shot a must.
Hole03
Long uphill par four requires your best two shots.
Hole04
This elevated par three tee shot is one of the most difficult on the course, it is over water and always has a tricky cross wind. Small bunker guards the front hole locations and green is always one of the fastest on the course.
Hole05
This elevated par three tee shot is one of the most difficult on the course, it is over water and always has a tricky cross wind. Small bunker guards the front hole locations and green is always one of the fastest on the course.
Hole06
This three shot par five has you crossing a creek on all shots, the third shot is slightly uphill and the correct yardage is a must.
Hole07
This uphill par three presents a depth perception challenge to the hole locations from the center of the green to the back, good ball control is a must.
Hole08
This par four has an uphill tee shot with a fairway bunker located in the right center of the fairway, good chance for a birdie.
Hole09
One of the hardest par fours on the course, play the tee shot down the left side moving the ball left to right, the second shot is from a downhill lie and distance to the hole is deceiving.
