Hole Description

Par 4 376 yards. Typical Ross/Raynor easy start with a narrow landing zone. The hole plays slightly downhill with a narrow well-bunkered green for a short second shot.
Par 4 413 yards. Difficult drive must be placed between 2 bunkers. Playing down the right side, with challenging bunkers and trees, give a great angle to this canted green. Elevation change in the middle of the green makes for a demanding second shot that must be hit the correct distance.
Par 3 214 yards. Green is deceivingly wide in the back and extremely narrow in the front. Bunker left is no good and the bail out to the right brings a huge oak tree into play. Green moves slightly from front to back and then back up hill.
Par5 478 yards: Water in play for one of the few times on the course. Well bunkered hole calls for a right to left tee shot. Very narrow green with a lot of movement from back to front. Large hump in middle makes chipping from the short side very difficult.
Par 3 140 Yards: Just a great short par 3, classic design with uphill par-4 6th as the background. This hole will look very familiar to those who have played Raynor’s courses as there used to be a lake behind this green. Green moves hard from right to left and front to back and it is well bunkered.
Par 4 277 yards: Typical Ross, great short hole. Risk reward with huge elevation change playing uphill and extremely well bunkered. Relatively flat green with the side hill approach shot presenting a challenge.
Par 4 376 yards: Elevated tee to very narrow drive zone over the valley of sissyness. Large green slopes away in the back with movement from back to front.
Par 4 392 yards: Our signature hole. Blind tee shot to generous fairway sloping from right to left, downhill lie second shot to uphill plateau green with slope from front to back. Spook Hill effect on green in that uphill putts are very quick while downhill putts tend to be slower than normal.
Par 5 557 yards: Drive out of the chute into the valley. Second shot, depending on wind, is either downhill or uphill to elevated landing zone. Narrow green, well bunkered with elevation change about 2/3 of the way into green. Back of green slopes right to left and away from the player.
