Trees line a number of fairways, and there is ample bunkering throughout both designs. There are five sets of tees per course, making them suitable for all skill levels.
The Hurricane Course the more difficult of the two courses.
The Gator Course plays to a par-73 and measures 7,042 yards from the back tees. The layout challenges with three par fives on the back nine. The course rating is 74.3 with a slope rating of 139.
#8 is a par 4 that plays 408 yards from Tee II. It’s the number one handicap on the Gator Course. It’s a long and narrow hole with the fairway sloping towards the rough on each side. Most players will be hitting a hybrid or fairway wood into the green. The green is long and narrow and is guarded in front by a large grass bunker which requires you to carry the ball onto the putting surface or you will be chipping to the green to save 3. One put would be par, but how many times do you one putt?
