The first hole plays downhill to a dual fairway that is bisected by a wetland that extends the length of the hole and is joined by a bunker to protect the right side of the green. The pin placement will determine the preferred route for your opening tee shot. A generous slope on the left of the approach will guide misdirected shots towards the green.
The second hole is the beauty and the beast of the golf course. A lake situated 50 feet below the tees guards the left side of the hole. The length is somewhat deceptive due to a downhill tee shot and assistance from the prevailing winds on the approach shot. The large undulating green is receptive to properly executed long run-up shots.
The ideal tee shot on this on this picturesque hole will carry a deep ravine and come to rest at the crest of the hill. The plateau green is nestled 40 feet below the tee shot landing area which adds to the difficulty of the club selection by making the hole look longer than it is.
The longest hole on the golf course is a double dogleg, a true three shot par five. The golfer must establish a strategy that will position their ball approximately 100-125 yards from the green for the third shot. The small green is protected by a bunker right, and a grass hollow left.
A straightforward driving hole with a generous fairway contained by slopes left and right. The second shot must carry a stream located short of the fairway approach. The green is tucked into a grove of majestic hardwoods and is protected by bunkers in the left approach and adjacent to the greens.
Golfers will play from an elevated tee to a green protected by a lake in front, on the left and over the green. In addition, two bunkers protect both the front left of the green and the right approach area. If proper club selection is made, a fairway collection hollow to the right of the green will serve as a bail-out area for those not willing to go for the pin.
This challenging par 4 begins with a tee shot out of a chute of mature hardwoods. A tee shot positioned close to the fairway bunker on the left will allow for an approach shot with the ideal angle into the axis of the kidney shaped green. A slightly uphill lie will require further concentration on the second shot to avoid deep grass hollows to the right of the green.
The shortest hole on the golf course puts a premium on short iron accuracy. The hole is situated in comparatively open terrain and is therefore exposed to swirling crosswinds. A two-tiered green further challenges the golfer fortunate enough to reach the putting surface with the tee shot.
This deceptively challenging hole begins with a demanding tee shot to a fairway protected by deep grass hollows left and a bunker right. The green is protected in the front by two bunkers and supported in the back with steep slopes that would require an extremely delicate recovery shot.
A beautiful hole awaits the golfer as they make the turn for the inward nine. The tee shot to a gently contoured fairway is framed by an exquisite grove of specimen hardwoods. The downhill approach shot must avoid bunkers guarding the front right and back left of the green.
Proper placement of the downhill tee shot will provide the golfer with the opportunity to go for the green in two. An errant tee shot will find the forest and bring two bunkers protecting the second landing area into play. The green is protected on the right by a bunker and has a gently rolling putting surface which is receptive to approach shots.
Trees on the left and a series of three bunkers on the right make this fairway appear deceptively narrow. A downhill shot into the prevailing wind must successfully negotiate a bunker closely guarding the left side of an undulating green. An extremely difficult recovery shot awaits the golfer for any shot over this green.
Another challenging par 4 that begins with a straight away downhill tee shot to generous landing area. The golfer must strategically position the tee shot in preparation for the approach. The green is well protected on the right by a bunker and grass hollow on the left by another bunker.
Multiple tees throughout the golf course provide variation in length to all levels of golfers. A good example is the fourteenth hole which plays from a reasonable 143 yards to a 228 yard monster. The hole transitions from a natural wetland on the right with a series of bunkers and grass hollows that lead up to the green. Playability is enhanced by a natural containment slope on the left and a fairway hollow which collects errant shots.
A well positioned tee shot with a long iron or fairway wood will flirt with the fairway bunker on the left and provide access to an open approach. A misdirected tee shot to the right will require a carry over two deep sand bunkers guarding the right front of a small green that is benched into the hillside.
The view from the elevated tee is spectacular and so is the 16th hole. The tee shot must be guided safely between two bunkers that frame the landing area. The margin for error is minimal on the approach shot to green a green protected on the right by a bunker and on the left and back by a steep slope that extends to the woodlands edge.
This inviting par 3 begins with a tee shot out of a treelined chute and over a meandering stream that angles to the left. Three bunkers surround the green with a fourth protecting the approach. The green has distinct undulations that define pin placements and the resulting shot selection.
Six well positional bunkers are all visible from the tee which leaves the golfer contemplating a strategic plan of attack. At 501 yards, this par 5 is reachable as long as you are able to avoid two bunkers guarding the left side of the landing area. The second landing area and green are well protected by bunkers that entice golfers to evaluate the level of risk and reward.
