For a Hole-by-Hole tour of our world-class golf course, select a hole number from the list below.
The first hole is a great opening hole. Complete with a blind tee shot and an amazing green complex, it is deceivingly difficult. Good course management is vital for making low scores on this hole.
The first of four demanding par three’s, this 3-par is not overly long in distance, but does require an accurate tee shot with a forced carry over water and deep bunkers.
This dog-leg left par 4 features several dangers along the left side and requires a precise tee shot to find the fairway. Players that safely find the fairway will then face a second shot to a green with many hole locations. In addition to the sloping green, bunkers are placed to guard the left front and left side of the green.
The first of the four par 5’s, this par 5 is straight forward in design, but does include a forced carry requiring a solid, well placed tee shot to find the fairway. Players should favor the right side of the fairway to avoid the highly visible dangers that meander along the entire left side of the hole. Only the longest hitters can reach the green in two shots, leaving most players to face an approach to a wide, shallow spyglass green, featuring many hole locations due to sever slopes, shelves, and crowns.
This is a very scenic short par 4 with a large stone backdrop affords the longer hitter the opportunity to go for the green off the tee. A long, well placed tee shot will yield an eagle opportunity for the bold players. With danger awaiting stray shots, this hole also affords the strategic player a level landing area for a conservative lay up. From there the player faces a short pitch shot to an elevated, sloping green. Bunkers guard the front and left portions of the twin level green.
The sixth is a very unique and challenging straight-away par 4 that requires a straight tee shot if you want to find the fairway that is not visible from the tee. the fairway descends steeply to a flat collection area that will nicely accommodate most well hit tee shots. From there the player faces an uphill second shot to a narrow elevated green guarded on the front right and along the left with bunkers. A narrow creek crosses an area in front of the green, but is not generally in play.
Arguably the toughest of the par 3’s, this hole has length while still demanding pinpoint accuracy. Any tee shot left to the right will feed down a severe slope to the bottom, where the player faces a blind uphill pitch to an elevated green. Multiple tee complexes afford tee shots from drastically different angles and lengths.
One very demanding par 4 requiring an excellent uphill tee shot to find the optimum landing area. More difficulties face the player on the approach shot as the green is not visible from any area of the fairway, making it difficult to judge the distance. The large, gently sloping green is well protected by deep pot bunkers in front.
A medium length, slight dog-leg left par 5 that is reachable in two by long hitters. Tee shots that favor the right side of the fairway will provide the best angle to the green. Fairway bunkers are strategically placed to endanger tee shots and lay up shots that stray left. The large sloping green can be deceptive due to multiple crowned levels. Deep, massive bunkers protect the green from all sides.
A medium length, beautiful par 4 which is accentuated by a beautiful rock walls around the green complex and it’s trademark lavarock bunker up the left hand side of the fairway. The green is very wide but shallow so distance control is of the essence coming into this green.
This short dog-leg right par 4 places a premium on tee shot placement, as the landing area is well guarded on the right with an assorted complex of bunkers. Approach shots will tend to bounce to the right following the natural left to right slope of the green. Bunkers are placed on four points around the massive green to collect errant shots.
This par 4, once again, places a premium on an accurate tee shot. Favor the right side of the fairway as balls landing to the right of the fairway will likely bounce off the graded slope back towards the fairway. Keeping to the right side of the fairway will also help you avoid the long series of bunkers that line the left side of the fairway. Good distance control is essential when approaching this green. The general slope of the green is from right to left and balls landing long are penalized by a very deep faced bunker.
You will really need to gauge your distance on this par 3 as there is a tremendous elevation change from tee to green. Stay away from the left side as the embankment will kick your ball along way left of the green. Only well struck tee shots will leave you with a reasonable birdie opportunity. Bunkers front and left will capture errant shots.
This uphill dog-leg left par 5 plays much longer than the indicated yardage, but still within two shot reach for long hitters. Tee shots must be kept right of the trees on the left, keeping in mind the landing area slopes from right to left. Well placed tee shots give you the option of going for the green in two, or laying up to the next plateau in the fairway. Approach shots from the plateau will be blind to a very deep green guarded by a series of bunkers on the left.
The second of the back to back par 5’s, the 15th impresses from the start with a multiple elevated tee complex. A large water hazard guards the last 180 yards fronting the green, threatening all approach shots to the green. Off of the tee, players should favor the left side to set up the most accessible approach to the green. All approaches to the green will require accuracy and distance control to avoid the greenside bunkers and embankments that surround the putting surface. Players bailing left of the green on their approach will face a difficult pitch to the green. Once safely on the green, players will still face a sloping multi-level putting surface.
The last of the par 3’s you will face. Multiple tee levels afford a challenge to players of every level. Distance control and accuracy will be needed to successfully negotiate this downhill par 3. The expansive sloping, terraced green lends itself to many great hole locations.
Making the final turn back to the clubhouse, you now face the first of two great finishing holes. With a narrow, well protected, tree-lined landing area, the 17th from the back tees, could possibly be the most difficult tee shot you will have to face in a round. Just off the tee, water awaits a poorly struck drive, while bunkers guard the right side of the fairway. Tee shots that find one of the fairway bunkers will face the most difficult approach over large trees to reach the green. Tee shots finding the landing area will then face a slightly uphill approach to a narrow, deep green. Bunkers placed right of the green await errant approach shots.
With a view of the clubhouse in the backdrop, this scenic closing par 4 is one of the most demanding finishing holes is the area. Challenging from any set of tees, the lengthy 18th can stretch out to nearly 460 yards from the back markers. Moderate trouble lurks around the landing, with a hidden, strategically placed pot bunker. Approach shots to the green will generally be lengthy to an expansive sloping green well guarded with deep bunkers on the right.
