Par 4 - Handicap 1
This starting hole requires a good tee shot down the middle of the fairway. The trees on the right or left side may block out any reasonable approach shot to the green. This is a demanding tee shot with trees on both sides. You may wish this hole was a little farther into the course as it is a tough one to warm up on. A par four is a good score.
Par 4 - Handicap 9
This is a slight dogleg to the right, but you must avoid the trees on the left. You receive more relief to the right than the left. A carefully placed tee shot provides a reasonable approach to this undulating green.
Par 3 - Handicap 11
A deceiving downhill par three which almost always requires more club than it appears. Water guards the front and left side of the green, and out of bounds looms not to far behind. It never plays as downhill as it looks.
Par 5 - Handicap 7
Hole number four is a reachable par five with two good shots, green is on the tricky side so accuracy is a must to ensure a good score. The left side of the fairway from the tee provides risk reward as it shortens this hole by quite a bit. Water can come into play for the big bombers off the tee, but not too many can reach it.
Par 3 - Handicap 13
Our fifth hole is a medium length downhill par three. The green is severely sloped from back to front. The tree on the left side protects all front left hole locations. An approach to the center of this green will provide you the best opportunity for par.
Par 4 - Handicap 15
If you believe that quality short par fours are a dying breed in the game the sixth hole is for you. This hole is straight away with little trouble. Hug the right side off of the tee for your best short iron approach. Birdie here is a real possibility.
Par 5 - Handicap 3
One of the best holes we have, this is a majestic hole that bends to the right. A good drive will reach the bottom of the first valley, but this hole will still require three accurate shots to reach the green. The fairway narrows from 100 yards and in. A par five here is a good score.
Par 4 - Handicap 17
This hole is a short par four, club selection could vary from a driver to a long iron depending on the tee's you play from. A short iron approach could set up a birdie try, beware of the front left bunker.
Par 4 - Handicap 5
Our ninth hole is a dog leg left with trees down the both sides. A good drive will leave a second shot with a mid iron to an elevated well bunkered green. Any drive to far right will run out of real estate.
Par 4 - Handicap 4
The back side begins much like the front, with a difficult par four. A drive to the top of the hill should favor the right side of the fairway. This will leave a medium to long iron to a green protected by water across the front and along the right. Take your four and move on as eleven gets no easier.
Par 4 - Handicap 2
Our number eleven hole is a good placement hole, a tee shot needs to be in the fairway and the farther right you are the less room to the creek crossing the fairway. Your approach to this highly elevated green must have enough to carry all the way back to the hole. While you are concerned about getting there remember accuracy is a premium, because missing the green is no picnic.
Par 3 - Handicap 18
A great view off this par three tee. Club selection is a premium for this downhill three par. Beware, a little to much spin and this one is coming back off the front of the green.
Par 4 - Handicap 16
This par four is a dogleg left which is tempting to cut for the long hitters. Playing this hole the traditional manner will yield more birdies than the risk of taking the short cut. Let poor judgment and courage be your guide.
Par 4 - Handicap 8
Hole number fourteen is a straight away par four with an elusive two tiered green. This green looks very easy to hit, but placement in the right place will decide whether you make par or bogey. Take a little extra time reading this green, it will be well spent.
Par 5 - Handicap 14
This hole presents a tee shot straight up the hill. Be cautious of the OB to the left, and leaving the ball in the fairway may provide you the chance to reach this long narrow green in two, a legitimate birdie try.
Par 3 - Handicap 12
This hole is a par three, which plays slightly downhill. This hole requires an accurate mid to long iron shot. Protected by a series of bunkers, reaching the green surface with your tee shot is the only real assurance you will have a chance to make par.
Par 5 - Handicap 6
The seventeenth hole is one which requires a straight drive. OB runs the entire left side of this true three shot par five. Being short of the cross bunkers will not hurt you and sets up a quality second shot. Play your approach to the flag as there are no secrets here.
