Hole Description

360 yard Par 4: Severe dogleg left where a properly placed tee shot is key. Approach to undulating green with bunker on the front, right side.
397 yard Par 4: This hole demands a well placed tee shot because of the large surrounding pot bunker which separates the end of the fairway to the rough just before a large green, with three surrounding bunkers.
371 yard Par 4: A real risk/reward par 4 with the fairway split in two by 5 bunkers surrounded by rough. The more aggressive drive would be to the thin, left portion of the fairway which gives a great angle to the green. The wider, right portion of the fairway would give a more demanding second shot over 2 bunkers just short of the green.
195 yard Par 3: Straight forward par 3 that has a very large undulating green with a bunker on the back, right hand side. Preferred miss is to the right of the green that has plenty of fairway.
392 yard Par 4: The preferred drive from this elevated tee box is to the right hand side of the fairway which gives the players a good angle for their up-hill second shot to the green that has a bunker on it's left side.
488 yard Par 5: Bunkers come into play on the right of the fairway for the player's drive. Definitely a reachable second shot to this up-hill green if the players can clear the the 5 bunkers separating the the fairway just before the green.
144 yard Par 3: Short par 3 where the players are shooting over a deep valley into a green with three bunkers in the front right portion.
391 yard Par 4: This fairway is a must hit. Missing on either side would result in tree trouble and a very hard second shot to this thin green, with a large, deep bunker just to the right of it.
479 Yard Par 5: The miss for this tee shot is on the right side because of the long line of trees and woods on the left side. This green is surrounded by 5 bunkers and a water hazard to the left, so a properly placed second shot is key.
