The first is a dogleg left with two fairway bunkers along the same side that can come into play. The 18th handicap hole, this short par five provides the potential to start the round with a solid score.
Hole 2 - Par 4
While only 324 yards in length, don’t think this hole is a pushover. It is protected by a severely sloping back to front green which makes putting on this hole very challenging. Staying below the hole is a must.
Hole 3 - Par 3
The third hole is a 151-yard par three with an elevated green. Number three normally plays with a short to mid-iron. This green has quite a bit of undulation sloping from back left to front right. Par on this hole is a solid score.
Hole 4 - Par 5
The longest hole on the course features out of bounds along the entire left side of the hole. The fourth is a straight away, slightly downhill playing hole to a relatively benign green protected by bunkers to the left and right.
Hole 5 - Par 4
This short uphill hole is fairly open with little trouble with the exception of a fairway bunker right and a large pot bunker short of the green. Bunkers on both the left and right side protect the green. Birdies can be made here.
Hole 6 - Par 3
The sixth hole is a challenging downhill par three. There is a fair amount of slope to the green and it is surrounded by two bunkers left and another in the front right. A good tee shot is required here.
Hole 7 - Par 4
The shortest par four on the golf course, a good drive leaves you a very short iron into an elevated green that slopes from back to front. The green elevation and front right bunker makes it challenging to get close to the pin.
Hole 8 - Par 4
The number two handicap hole requires two good shots to reach this green that is protected by bunkers on both the left and right and slightly elevated. This is a difficult scoring hole due to the length and the undulating green.
Hole 9 - Par 4
The tee shot here requires avoiding the trees on the left and right as well as two fairway bunkers that can come into play. From there it is a short to mid iron where one must avoid the right-hand bunker and maneuver a sloping green.
Hole 10 - Par 4
The tenth is uphill where tee shot placement is key. 230 yards off the tee is a creek. The right side features a large tree blocking the green from tee shots that favor the right. The hole is all about positioning---particularly off the tee.
Hole 11 - Par 3
The eleventh is a short, downhill par three. The wind can play a factor on this tee shot. The hole has a large, inviting green and is a definite scoring opportunity.
Hole 12 - Par 5
The only par five on the back nine is an uphill dogleg right. Water borders the hole along the left while the trees on the right must be avoided too. A good tee shot and well placed second will leave a short approach to the green.
Hole 13 - Par 4
A particularly difficult hole due to the length and sloping fairway from left to right. Any tee shots middle of fairway or right may be blocked. The green is guarded by a pond on the left with a front to back sloping putting surface.
Hole 14 - Par 4
A dogleg right leading to an extremely elevated green. The right hand fairway bunker can come into play if you try to cut the dogleg. The green slopes dramatically from back to front.
Hole 15 - Par 4
The number one handicap hole on the course, this hole plays through trees on the left and right and doglegs left up the hill to a difficult green. The upper left to lower right sloping green is a challenge to putt from anywhere.
Hole 16 - Par 4
Sixteen is a straightaway hole where players must avoid the trees on the left hand side and the longer natural rough and smaller trees growing along the right. The green is protected by a large bunker on the right hand side.
Hole 17 - Par 4
This is a dogleg right where a good tee shot will leave you a fairly short iron into an elevated green. The green slopes back to the player and with a front pin, many may find themselves short on the upslope of the green.
Hole 18 - Par 4
The last features water along the left side and an area of trees plus a fairway bunker right that can come into play. The approach is to an elevated green surrounded by tall weeping willows and a small pond short right.
