Hole Description

Hole01
401 yards Par 4: Requires good strong drive and mid-iron approach to a green sloped back to front. Difficult opening hole.
Hole02
408 yards Par 4: Drive here must hold right side of the fairway with slight dogleg right bend. Avoid greenside bunkers on the left; Green is open in front - allows to run ball up.
Hole03
367 yards Par 4: Slight dogleg left; drive should favor right side to stay clear of fairway bunkers.
Hole04
141 yards Par 3: Difficult short hole; played to a small green with traps guarding the left and right front.
Hole05
337 yards Par 4: Dogleg left that crosses water twice. 190 yard tee shot will leave the player in position to play a short iron to a plateau green.
Hole06
340 yards Par 4: Drive down the left side fairway; avoiding fairway bunkers on right – leaves approach shot to a well bunkered green.
Hole07
533 yards Par 5: Typically a three shot hole with plenty of room on left side for driver. A well played second shot down the left side fairway leaves the best angle to a difficult approach that slopes off on left side of green.
Hole08
167 yards Par 3: A terrific par 3 with a creek that runs just in front of the green on an angle that can be troubling. Very little trouble left or just short of the green.
Hole09
467 yards Par 5: Risk reward drive down the right side of the dogleg that challenges the bunkers and out of bounds will give you a favorable bounce that leaves the player in position to make birdie.
