Hole 1 | Par 4
Favor the right center of the fairway to avoid the creek and provide the best approach to the green. Suggest a fairway wood for big hitters. Beware of water short and right of the green which slopes from back to front.
Hole 2 | Par 4
A demanding par four where length is a premium. Note errant shots can reach water on right. Generous green is relatively flat although well protected by menacing bunkers on both side.
Hole 3 | Par 3
One of the most beautiful and intimidating par threes you’ll ever play. Wind plays an important role on this hole so be sure to take enough club.
Hole 4 | Par 5
A thinking man’s par five, which is reachable in two for big hitters. Avoid fairway bunker off the tee on right. Second shot is usually played short of the creek which crosses the fairway. The right side is preferred angle into the green whose subtle undulations make it one of the more difficult to read on the course.
Hole 5 | Par 4
Keep your driver in the bag on this short par four. The key here is hitting the fairway and the green. Otherwise, par will be difficult.
Hole 6 | Par 3
Club selection and accuracy are critical on this relatively short par three. The large green is well bunkered and offers a variety of challenging pin positions.
Hole 7 | Par 4
An exciting par four that begins with a spacious landing area. Tee shot must be in the fairway so driver may best be kept in the bag, especially for big hitters. Right side is preferable to attack this spectacular green but beware of fairway bunker and OB.
Hole 8 | Par 4
This dogleg right requires an accurate tee shot. Aim just inside the fairway bunker for the ideal approach to this well bunkered green. Note the severe depressions along the left side of the hole.
Hole 9 | Par 4
A superb par four that demands a good drive in the fairway to carry the wetland on the second shot. Otherwise the approach must be laid up which leaves a testy uphill recovery shot to a large well protected green.
Hole 10 | Par 4
On this short par four, it is more than tempting to hit a driver. Instead, choose a club that will leave 100-125 yards for the downhill approach. A large green makes it difficult to get close.
Hole 11 | Par 3
Club selection is vital on this straightforward par three. Be sure to hit enough club to carry the two bunkers fronting this small green and beware of the wetland on right.
Hole 12 | Par 4
A slightly uphill par four. Two solid shots are required to reach this long, narrow green which slopes from back to front.
Hole 13 | Par 5
It is imperative to hit the fairway on this long par five. Big hitters should be cautious of hitting through the fairway. Ideally, the second shot should be played down the left side to avoid numerous fairway bunkers and set up a short iron approach to this small green.
Hole 14 | Par 4
The shortest par four on the course but don’t be fooled. With wetlands on both sides of the fairway, keep your driver in the bag. The key is to position tee shot in the fairway for a short iron approach to this large green.
Hole 15 | Par 4
Big hitters may need to lay up to avoid the wetland, which crosses the fairway. This green is the most difficult on the course to putt so be careful with your second shot.
Hole 16 | Par 4
Trouble on both sides of the fairway demands an accurate tee shot. Water in front as well as bunkers and trees on both sides guard the entrance to this well protected green.
Hole 17 | Par 3
A breathtaking par three. A slightly elevated tee shot over water to the largest green on the course. Trust the yardage and don’t be short.
Hole 18 | Par 5
Our signature hole provides a dramatic finish. Favor right side of fairway to avoid creek running down left side, which crosses the fairway. On the second shot, the left side is preferred to avoid the creek and wetland right. This will set up a short pitch to a tricky green.
