Playing the course
#1, Par-4 Straight away, 365 from the blues, with a good approach a birdie is possible here.
#2, Par-4 The longest par-4 at 391. This hole requires a tee shot over a brook that can come in to play. The approach shot is up to an elevated green, which slopes back to front. A front pin can be tough here.
#3, Par 4 This hole can play differently every day depending on the wind. A long hitter might hit a sand wedge into the green one day, and eight iron the next. This hole is 342 from the back with a pond on the left landing area of the fairway.
#4, Par-5 The only par-5, it plays to 453 yards. This hole offers another chance for par or better. A drive over a small creek will leave you around 200 out to go over the bunker guarding the well contoured green and have a chance at eagle.
#5, Par-4 This hole is 350 yards from the back with a blind tee shot over a hill to a fairway with out of bounds to the left. The green is sloped back to front, and over the green could lead to a large number so be cautious with your approach shot.
#6, Par-3 The yardage of this hole ranges from 137 yards to 197 yards, and the green is well bunkered, par is always a good score here.
#7, Par-4 This hole features a downhill tee shot to a wide fairway, but long hitters need to be careful of the pond that is in front of the green. A short approach shot to this green always leaves good birdie opportunities.
#8, Par-4 Coming down the home stretch to a dogleg left. If you go over the trees, you will have a wedge to the green. A straight-away drive leaves a longer approach but might also save a penalty stroke. At 367 yards this hole can put many different numbers on the scorecard.
#9, Par-3 At 234 yards from the tips this hole has out of bounds on the left, and a well-bunkered green. Your short game will be tested here. Walk off with a 3, and you made a great score on this hole.
