Hole Description

Hole01
Hole No. 1 on the Senator is a dogleg right par-4. Avoid the bunkers guarding both sides of the fairway to leave a mid- to short-iron to a very accessible green. Hole location will dictate how aggressive the approach shot can be played because trouble fronts the green.
Hole02
The need for a long iron or fairway wood off the tee makes the par-3 second hole more difficult. The front of the huge green is protected by three deep bunkers, and a ridge bisects the middle of the green, separating the front section from the back
Hole03
The short par-4 third hole requires an accurate tee shot to avoid fairway bunkers dotting the right side of the hole. A good drive will leave a short iron approach to a tiered green protected in front by bunkers. The double green is shared with Hole No. 7.
Hole04
You need to carry a pot bunker that sits in the middle of the fairway with your drive on the par-4 fourth hole. The back-right portion of the green is sloped downhill and can be used to funnel the ball close if the pin is cut there.
Hole05
The first par-5 on the Senator is one of the longest and most difficult holes on the Trail. At 681 yards from the tips, three well-struck shots are needed to find the green in regulation. The green is protected by three pot bunkers.
Hole06
Squeeze your tee shot in between bunkers from an elevated tee on the par-4 sixth hole. The tiered green is angled away from the fairway meaning the hole plays more difficult the further back the flag is cut
Hole07
It is wise to take extra club off the tee on the par-3 seventh hole because the green sits high above the fairway and any shot that comes up short will leave a tough chip to save par. A ridge runs through the middle of the green so knock it close to avoid a difficult putt.
Hole08
Depending on the wind, the two pot bunkers on the right can sometimes be carried off the tee. Make sure your second shot clears a bunker in the middle of the fairway and you should be left with a great chance for birdie
Hole09
A daring drive can leave you with a wedge for your approach. It could also leave you in a fairway bunker or, worse, the high, thick grass the Senator course is famous for. If the pin is cut in the back of the green you can use a severe slope to funnel the ball close to the cup.
