Course Tour

Hole 1: Par 4

Start your round with a short dogleg right par 4. Finding the fairway is crucial as tall rough and trees guard the right side. Keep your second shot below the hole, as this relatively flat green slopes severely from back to front.

Hole 2: Par 5

A risk-reward par 5 awaits. Depending on your tee shot’s length and accuracy, the green may be reachable in two. If you decide to go for it, take enough club to carry both water and the greenside bunker. For those laying up, a generous area left of the pond near the 100-yard marker awaits.

Hole 3: Par 5

This uphill par 5 presents multiple challenges. Avoid the fairway bunker on the left and the drainage pond and out of bounds on the right. Once safely off the tee, it’s straight up the hill to a generous green, but beware of the two greenside bunkers short and left, and the small pot bunker on the right.

Hole 4: Par 3

Our first of five par 3s. Aim carefully to avoid the large bunker on the left that will catch any balls short and left of the green.

Hole 5: Par 4

A slight dogleg right with out of bounds on the right. Keep your tee shot on the left side to avoid the fairway bunker and set up your second shot away from the small pond short and right of the green. The green is guarded by bunkers on both sides and a creek over the back.

Hole 6: Par 4

Similar to Hole 5 but with less trouble. Beware of the out of bounds down the entire right side. Bunkers guard the green on the left and right sides on your second shot.

Hole 7: Par 5

Another par 5 offering an excellent birdie chance. A tee shot to the left side of the fairway provides the best angle into the green. Keep approach shots below the hole as the green slopes back to front.

Hole 8: Par 3

Our shortest par 3. Fire at the flag but watch out for the six bunkers surrounding the green.

Hole 9: Par 4

An uphill dogleg left where accuracy off the tee is key. A perfect tee shot leaves an uphill second shot to a generous green. Bunkers sit on both sides of the green. Pay attention to the tricky breaks on this green.

Hole 10: Par 3

A tricky downhill par 3 with a small green surrounded by bunkers. A small grass approach area short of the green will collect most shots that come up short.

Hole 11: Par 4

A slight dogleg right. Accuracy off the tee is essential as trees line both sides of the fairway. Take an extra club on your second shot as it plays slightly uphill.

Hole 12: Par 4

A short par 4 dogleg left. Aim down the right side of the fairway for the best angle on your second shot. No trouble around the green, but it is the smallest green on the course.

Hole 13: Par 4

A very short par 4 with a great birdie opportunity! Longer hitters might go for the green, while others may lay up and hit it close with the second shot. Only trouble is the out of bounds along the entire right side.

Hole 14: Par 5

Our signature hole! This mammoth par 5 brings all obstacles into play. After a good tee shot, watch out for the pond on the left and long through the fairway. The green is surrounded by bunkers and more water for balls flying over the green. A score of five here is excellent!

Hole 15: Par 3

A par 3 with water on the left. The generous green allows for some leeway even if your tee shot is slightly off line. Be cautious of the bunker short and left.

Hole 16: Par 4

An uphill par 4 with many options. Drive as far as you like or lay up in the fairway—both are good strategies. The long green is only guarded by bunkers on the right side.

Hole 17: Par 3

Another short par 3 with bunkers on both sides of the green and pine trees behind. A great birdie opportunity.

Hole 18: Par 4

A straightaway uphill par 4. Trees line both sides of the fairway, making tee shot accuracy crucial. The most difficult green on the course demands extra attention for your final putt.
